                    Simple Man – Bad Company
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

Bad Company
Simple Man (1976)
(Mick Ralphs)

From: "Run with the Pack"

Can be played in standard tuning, but sounds great in Drop-D. 
I added alternate vocings and tabs below.
