Simple Man Tab

   
"Simple Man" by Shinedown
Tabbed by: Redfish727

I think this is pretty accurate and a good song for beginners
and more advanced players alike. Its just a great song.
The entire song follows the chord progression C-G-Am. And
the short fill part utilizes the 'A minor' pentatonic scale.
Drop me an e-mail if you have any corrections or just alternate
ways to play it.

Well ma'ma told me when I was young
Said sit beside me my only son
And listen closely to what I say
And if you do this it well help you some sunny day
Ahh yeahh it will

Oh take your time don't live to fast
Troubles will come and they will pass
You'll find a women and you'll find love
And don't forget that there isa' someone up above

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

Don't get your lust from the rich man's gold
All that you need now 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
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 don't you worry you'll find yourself
Follow your heart and nothin' 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 won't you do this for me son if you can
So baby be simple...be a simple man
Oh won't you do this for me son...if you can
