    Lyrics

    Well, Momma 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'll help you some sunny day (ahhh ya)

    Oh, take your time
    Don't live too fast
    Troubles will come
    And they will pass
    You'll find a woman
    And you'll find love
    And don't forget that there is someone up above

    And be a simple kind of man
    Oh, 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 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
    Won't you do this for me son, if you can

    Oh, don't you worry
    You'll find yourself
    Follow your heart
    And nothing 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
    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
    So baby, be a simple be a simple man
    Oh, won't you do this for me, son, if you can

      I honestly think that Shinedown's version of this song makes the other version become really really bad

      I think this cover is perfect. I personally like it better then the orignal. The lead singer puts way more heart and emotion into this song.

      And to the Nirvana fans out there, you do know that "Smells Like Teen Spirit" is a remake don't you? Lol

      As you can probably tell from my name,this is my favorite song.The orginal,performed by lynard skynard,is such a great song and,in my eyes,only surpassed by the shinedown cover.The vocals are better then the orginal and i think the acoustic is better then the electric guitar for this song.So shindown beat lynard skynard in instruments and vocal.All together it is a very powerfull song.The lyrics seem cliche but it gets the point accrose in such a beautiful way,it makes it more original.I plan to play this song for my upcoming child(due in may ).I will play it acoustic while my girl(who has a great singing voice)sings to my child as a lullaby,befor he sleeps.

      I'm a huge skynyrd fan, so when a friend told me about this cover, i was like "there's no way, i'm definately gonna hate it..." but i heard it, and immediately loved it. shinedown took this one step further than a cover - they made it their own in a great way, while keeping the american rock n' roll roots intact. no one will ever be better than skynyrd for me... but these guys come close.
