(Simple Man was origionally done by Lynyrd Skynyrd and has been remade by Shinedown. I
think they did an excellent job with the acoustic recreation of it, and man can that guy
sing! Well, here you go)


[Verse]

     C       G          Am
Mama told me, when I was young 
         C         G        Am
Come sit beside me, my only son
           C       G         Am
And listen closely, to what I say.
            C
And if you do this
         G           Am 
It will help you some sunny day.


[Instrumental]

C  G Am
 

[Verse]

            C    G               Am 
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
And don't forget that,
          G          Am  
There is someone up above.


[Chorus]

          C     G         Am
And be a simple  kind of man.
       C     G             Am
Be something  you love and understand. 
      C     G         Am
Be a simple  kind of man.
           C       G    
Won't you do this for me son,
        Am 
If you can?


[Verse]

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


[Chorus]

          C     G         Am
And be a simple  kind of man.
       C     G             Am
Be something  you love and understand. 
      C     G         Am
Be a simple  kind of man.
           C       G    
Won't you do this for me son,
        Am 
If you can?


[Verse]

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


[Chorus]

          C     G         Am
And be a simple  kind of man.
       C     G             Am
Be something  you love and understand. 
      C     G         Am
Be a simple  kind of man.
           C       G    
Won't you do this for me son,
        Am 
If you can?
