Subject: crd: "The Simple Life" from the movie " Father of the Bride"

This song comes from the movie "Father of the Bride".
I have no idea who wrote it or who performs it for the 
movie. I don't Know the title But I'm guessing that it is 
                 "The Simple Life"

         Em7                 A13              Dmaj7 Adim
	Folks are blessed who make the most of everyday
        Em7             A13        Dmaj7  C#7#5b9
	living by their own philosophy 
        F#m7        B13              Emaj7    Bdim
	everyone beneath the sun must find a way
         Bm7              Bm6          A7  A7#5
	and I've found the only way for me

Verse 1: Em7    A7         F#m7        B7
	I don't believe in frettin' and grievin'
        Em7        C#m7/11  C7b5  Bm7  D13
	why mess around    with   strife
	Gmaj7       Gm7      F#m7       Bm7  
	I never was cut out to step and strut out
        Em7        E9      A7
	give me the simple life

Verse 2: Em7         A7       F#m7      B7
	Some find it pleasant dining on pheasant
            Em7               C#m7/11  C7b5  Bm7 D13
	but those things roll off      my    knife
        Gmaj7      Gm7      F#m7        Bm7
	just feed me tomata's and mashed potata's    
        Em7         A7     Dmaj7
	give me the simple life

Chorus: Em7      A13              Dmaj7  Adim
	A cottage small is all I'm after 
        Em7         A13          Dmaj7  C#7#5b9
	not one too spacious and wide
        F#m7        B13                Emaj7   Bdim
	a house that rings with joy and laughter
              Bm7      Bm6     A7
	of the ones you love inside

Verse 3: Em7          A7       F#m7          B7
	Life could be thrilling for one who's willing 
        Em7    C#m7/11 C7b5  Bm7  D13
	to be a far -- mer's wife
        Gmaj7          Gm7         F#m7         Bm7
	kids calling me pappy could sure make me happy
        Em7         E9     A7
	give me the simple life

Verse 4:Em7          A7          F#m7          B7
	Some take the high road, I'll take the low road
        Em7          C#m7/11  C7b9  Bm7   D13
	free from the care    and   strife
            Gmaj7        Gm7   F#m7     Bm7
	sounds corny and seedy but yes indeedy
        Em7         A7     Dmaj7
	give me the simple life

        Em7         A7     Dmaj7    D6/9
Ending: Give me the simple life

     If anyone can tell me who wrote this tune
please e-mail me at dmeta@quadro.net
     If you aren't familiar with these chords or
style, I would recommend Mickey Baker's Complete 
Course in Jazz Guitar-book 1; if it is still in print.
