(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)

     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.

C  G Am
 
            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?

(Alright, its the same three chords throughout the entire song. So, use the same chord
pattern from the above verse and chorus throughout the rest of the song.)

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

(Chorus)

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

(Chorus)

know, especially since it is so easy.)
