Simple Man

While driving home from my 9 to 5 job this week I heard Shinedown’s cover of Lynyrd Skynyrd’s song Simple man. One of the versus really struck me.

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 for you my son is to be satisfied

And be a simple kind of man
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? Oh yes, I will

    I love this song. When I found out I was carrying a boy my ears seemed to tune into it on the radio. I really listened. I still have these hopes for him at 4 years.
