Lynyrd Skynyrd – Simple Man

Lynyrd Skynyrd is an American rock band best known for popularizing the southern hard-rock genre during the 1970s. Originally formed in 1964 as the The Noble Five in Jacksonville, Florida, the band rose to worldwide recognition on the basis of its driving live performances and signature tunes “Sweet Home Alabama” and “Free Bird”. At the peak of their success, three members died in an airplane crash in 1977, putting an abrupt end to the band’s most popular incarnation. The surviving band members re-formed in 1987 for a reunion tour with lead vocalist Johnny Van Zant, the younger brother of lead singer and founder Ronnie Van Zant. The re-formed band continues to tour and record with original co-founding member Gary Rossington and core members Johnny Van Zant along with Rickey Medlocke who recorded with the band for a short time in the early 1970s. Long time drummer Michael Cartellone has recorded and toured with the band since 1999. Lynyrd Skynyrd was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 13, 2006.

Lynyrd Skynyrd – Simple Man Lyrics:
My mama told me when I was young.
Said sit beside me my only son.
And listen closely to what I say.
And if you do this it’ll help you some sunny day.
Oh, yeah it will.

Oh, take your time, don’t live too fast.
Troubles will come and they will pass.
You’ll find a woman and you’ll find love.
And don’t forget that there is a someone up above.

And be a simple kind of man.
And be something you’ll love and understand.
Baby be a simple kind of man.
Oh, won’t you do this for me son if you can?.
Then you can.

Don’t get your lust from the rich man’s gold.
All that you need now is in your soul.
And you can do this, oh baby if you try.
All that I want from you my son is to be satisfied.

And be a simple kind of man.
And be something you’ll love and understand.
Baby be a simple kind of man.
Oh, won’t you do this for me son if you can?
If you can.

Oh, don’t you worry, you’ll find yourself.
Follow your heart and nothing else.
And you can do this, oh baby if you try.
All that I want from you my son is to be satisfied.

And be a simple kind of man.
Be something you’ll love and understand.
Baby 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?
