[Verse 1]

       C            G            Am     
Well, Moma told me,  when I was young.
      C                 G         Am     
Come sit down beside me,  my only son.
       C            G           Am     
And listen closely,   to what I say.
        C                 G                     Am     
And if you do this, it will help you, some sunny day.
   
Oh baby, be a simple man!


[Chorus]

      C        G        Am     
And be a simple kind of man.
      C           G                  Am     
And be something,  you love and understand.
        C          G             Am     
Baby, be a simple,   be a simple man.
          C            G                   Am     
Oh, won't you do this,  for me son, if you can?

Oh yeah, I'll be your simple man!


[Verse 2]

              C    G            Am     
Oh, take your time,  don't live too fast.
              C    G              Am     
Troubles will come,  and they will pass.
          C         G           Am     
Go find a woman, and you'll find love.
             C                 G          Am     
And don't forget son, there is someone up above.

Oh yeah!


[Chorus]

    C          G        Am     
And be a simple kind of man.
      C            G                   Am     
And be something,  you love and understand.
         C          G            Am     
Baby, be a simple,   be a simple man.
          C           G                 Am     
Oh, won't you do this for me son, if you can?

Oh yeah, I'll be your simple man!


[Verse 3]

       C          G                Am     
Forget your lust,  for rich man's gold,
      C            G             Am     
All that you need,  is in your soul.
      C               G               Am     
And you can do this, oh baby,  if you try.
      C                   G                    Am     
All that I want for you my son, is to be satisfied.

Oh yeah!


[Chorus]

         C        G        Am     
Baby, be a simple  kind of man.
      C           G                    Am     
And be something,  you love and understand.
         C         G             Am     
Baby, be a simple,  be a simple man.
          C            G                   Am     
Oh, won't you do this,  for me son, if you can?

Oh yeah, I'll be your simple man!


[Verse 4]

          C           G                 Am     
Boy, don't you worry,  you'll find yourself.
       C           G             Am     
Follow your heart,  and nothing else.
        C               G           Am     
You can do this,  oh baby,  if you try.
        C                    G                 Am     
All that I want for you my son, is to be satisfied.

Oh yeah.


[Outro]

         C         G             Am     
Baby, be a simple,  be a simple man!
            C          G                    Am     
Oh baby, be something,  you love and understand!
         C        G         Am     
Baby, be a simple  kind of man.

Baby, be a simple man!

It's pretty solid, that Am actually makes a hell of a difference, thank you!

This is not the Bad Company Simple Man, it is the Lynard Skynard Simple Man, there are two completely different. This is the Bad Company's " Simple Man": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLHtXUml-kY
