A Simple Song

Album: From A Room: Volume 2 (2017)
  • Lately things are on my mind
    Good news is hard to find
    And I work on the factory line
    And all I do is stay behind

    Call my mama like I should
    She says daddy ain't doing too good
    Me and him should wet a line
    I just can't seem to find the time

    But I love my life man it's something to see
    It's the kids and the dogs and you and me
    It's the way it's alright when everything goes wrong
    It's the sound of a slow simple song

    I finally saved some money up
    'Til I had to fix my truck
    Talked to brother the other day
    He didn't have too much to say

    Tryin' to quit these cigarettes
    I can't seem to kick them yet
    Sister got laid off last fall
    And I got high cholesterol

    But I love my life man it's something to see
    It's the kids and the dogs and you and me
    It's the way it's alright when everything goes wrong
    It's the sound of a slow simple song

    Yeah, I love my life man it's something to see
    It's the kids and the dogs and you and me
    It's the way it's alright when everything goes wrong
    It's the sound of a slow simple song Writer/s: Christopher Alvin Stapleton, Darrell Hayes
