Putting this out there for a very dear friend on his path to finding simplicity… Love you always…
Songwriters: RonnieVan Zant/ Gary Robert Rossington



Come 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.

Take your time… Don’t live too fast,

Troubles will come and they will pass.

You’ll find a woman, you’ll find love,

And don’t forget son,

There is someone up above.

(Chorus)

And be a simple, kind of man.

Be something, you love and understand.

Baby be a simple, kind of man.

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, if you try.

All that I want for you my son,

Is to be satisfied.

(Chorus)

Boy, don’t you worry… you’ll find yourself.

Follow your heart, and nothing else.

And you can do this, if you try.

All that I want for you my son,

Is to be satisfied.

(Chorus)

Be a simple, be a simple man.

Be something, you love and understand.

Baby be a simple, kind of man. (Fade out)

Happy Valentine’s Day !

Love to you all,

Jeane
