    Well mama told me, when i was young
    Said sit beside me, my ownly son
    And listen closely to what i say
    And if you do this, it'll help you some sunny day

    So take your time don't live to fast
    Troubles will come and they will pass
    You'll find a woman and you'll find love
    And don't forget that there's is a someone up above

    Be a simple kind of man
    Be a something you love and understand
    Baby be a simple kind of man
    Oh won't you do this for me son if you can

    Get your lust from the rich man's gold
    All that you need now is in your soul
    And you can do this if you try
    All i want from you my son is to be satisfied

    And be a simple kind of man
    Be a something that you love and understand
    Baby be a simple kind of man
    Oh won't you do this for me son if you can

    Oh don't you worry
    You'll find yourself
    Follow your heart
    And nothing else
    And you can do this if you try
    All i want from you my son is to be satisfied

    And be a simple kind of man
    Oh won't you do this for me son if you can
    So baby be a simple be a simple man
    Oh won't you do this for me son if you can

    Suck on this one loverboy



    I never really feel quite right
    I don't know why, all I know is there's something wrong
    Every time I look at you, you seem so alive

    Tell me how do you do it, walk me through it
    I'm following every footstep

    Baby on your own you take a cautious step
    Do you wanna give it up?

    But all I want is for you to SHINE
    Shine down on me
    Shine on this life that's burning out

    I say a lot of things sometimes that don't come out right
    And I act like I don't know why
    I guess a reaction is all I was looking for

    You looked through me, you really knew me like no one has EVER looked before

    Baby on your own you take a cautious step
    Do you wanna give it up?

    But all I want is for you to SHINE
    Shine down on me
    Shine on this life that's burning out

    I know, I know, girl you got something

    SHINE (shine it on to me)
    Shine down on me (I wanna feel it)
    Shine on this life that's burning out

    Baby on your own you take a cautious step
    Do you wanna give it up?

    But all I want is for you to SHINE
    Shine down on me (just show me something)
    Shine on this life that's burning out (you give me something that I never
    know)

    Shine (it gonna kill me if you give something away)
    Shine yeaaah (I wanna know what's going in on your mind)
    Shine on this life that's burning out

    Now that one kicks ass!

    I ain't nothing but a simple man
    Call me a redneck, I reckon that I am
    But there's things goin' on that make me mad down to the core
    I have to work like a dog to make ends meet
    There's crooked politicians and crime in the street
    And I'm madder than hell and I ain't gonna take it no more
    We tell our kids to just say no
    And then some panty waist judge lets a drug dealer go
    And he slaps him on the wrist and he turns him back out on the town
    Well, if I had my way with people sellin' dope
    I'd take a big tall tree and a short piece of rope
    And hang 'em up high and let 'em swing till the sun goes down

    Chorus:
    Well you know what's wrong with the world today
    People done gone and put their Bibles away
    There livin' by law of the jungle not the law of the land
    Well the good book says it, so I know it's the truth
    An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth
    You'd better watch where you go
    And remember where you've been
    That's the way I see it I'm a simple man

    Now, I'm the kind of man that wouldn't harm a mouse
    But if I catch somebody breakin' in my house
    I've got a twelve gauge shotgun waitin' on the other side
    So don't go pushin' me against my will
    I don't want to have to fight you but I durn sure will
    So if you don't want trouble that you'd better just pass me on by
    As far as I'm concerned there ain't no excuse
    For the raping and the killing and the child abuse
    And I've got a way to put and end to all that mess
    You just take those rascals out in the swamp
    Put them on their knees and tie 'em to a stump
    And let the rattlers and the bugs and the alligators do the rest

    "Bad Company's " Simple Man

    I can't recall all the words,but Bad Comapny had a song called "Simple Man" on one of their albums-"Straight Shooter" I think--it was an awesome song too..

    I like Charlie Daniels "Simple Man" too..same title,completely different song !

    It reminds me of Hank.Jr.'s "Country Boy Can Survive",and "I Got Rights",and The American Way".. :crazy:
