A Simple Song

Chris Stapleton, Darrell Hayes

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


(chorus) x2
