Simple man is, well, simple. A real 3 chord wonder. Walk up 
the the C when appropriote. 


Am	(a b)      C     G           Am  
	Well moma told me, when I was young,
		  C        G         Am 
	Come sit be side me, my only son. 
		   C     G               Am 
	And listen to me, and the words I say. 
		      C           G               Am
	And they will help you my son, some sunny day. 


	(other verse) 

	Chorus
	a b        C  G         Am 
  	And be a simple kind of man, 
		   C    G                   Am 
	And be something, you love and understand, 
		C   G           Am 
	Be a simple, be a simple man, 
	          C           G              Am 
	Wont yout do this for me son, if you can,


	
The word are easy to pick out. 
	Have fun,
