Song Lyrics

(Gary Rossington - Ronnie VanZant)

Mama told me when I was young

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.

Oh, take your time... Don`t live too fast,

Troubles will come and they will pass.

Go find a woman, oh baby, 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.

Oh, 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, oh baby, 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, lord, and nothing else.

And you can do this, oh baby, if you try.

All that I want for you my son,

Is to be satisfied.

(Chorus)
