Simple Man – Taken for a ride?

Mama told me, when I was young
Sit beside me, my only son
And listen closely to what I say
And if you do this, it’ll help you some sunny day
Ahhh
Yeah it will

Oh, take your time don’t live too fast
Troubles will come and they will pass
You’ll find a woman and you’ll find love
And don’t forget son there’s is someone up above

And be a simple kind of man
Oh be something you love and understand
Baby be a simple kind of man
Oh won’t you do this for me son, if you can

Forget your lust for the rich man’s gold
All that you need is in your soul
And you can do this (oh baby) if you try
All that I want from you my son is to be satisfied

And be a simple kind of man
Oh be something that you love and understand
Baby be a simple kind of man
Oh won’t you do this for me son, if you can

Oh don’t you worry
You’ll find yourself
Follow your heart
And nothing else
And you can do this (oh baby) if you try
All that I want from you my son is to be satisfied

And be a simple kind of man
Oh be something that you love and understand
So baby be a simple, be a simple man
Oh won’t you do this for me son, if you can.

— Lynyrd Skynyrd

Taken for granted and taken for a ride, should Simple man always remain simple?
