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.
