I would like to dedicate this song to my boyfriend. He is a simple man :)
Ronnie van Zandt said it all in this song
Beautiful song. Nothing like it
They played this at my dads funeral two weeks ago, he and I were close when I was little but as I grew we grew apart until about 8 months ago when I saw him and we had a great time then he told me that was dying of liver cancer and kidney failure. We hung out every day after that day. The last few days he was unresponsive so we didn't talk much and I was worried but these were the words he wanted to Say but couldnt

Is it ok to imagine me as a little boy getting this kind of advise from my mom so i can believe that if my dad was,nt so hard on her about parenting properly she would have. Cause i ,ve never had such an intamate conversation with het like that. Im 51 now and listening to stairway to heaven right now while texting isn,t pandora great. And we are having to many silent and awkward moments to bare we have,nt talked or hung out in 2months now, the last time i saw her s
〰 〰simply beautiful message〰 〰

I played this song everyday when I was pregnant with my only son :)
Great song makes me think about being back in Alaska with the beautiful wildlife and mountains
Kid rock cant hold a candle to them

Sounds like Skynyrd to me-smjordan3 4 - Kid Rock is a fair spin-off and Shinedown are soul counterfeite r s with cheap a** pyro smoke and mirrors. Nothing simple about that but the fraud of parading and capitalizing on Simple Man as their own.
Sounds like kidrock a little bit
Simple man live .lynyrd sknyrd..
Love you Matthew my only brother! Drinking one for ya buddy!
Listen to this my son!
Saw Lynyrd skynyrd in 76,77,79 OMG still sooooo great!!'
I love how pandora predicts what I want to listen to
When my brother died in 2012, my only sibling from a drug OD, battling it for years, we made a timeline w photos.... And this was the song that suited him the very best. Esp since my father died of drugs as well. And this was more of a song in my fathers era but the meaning to my mother was priceless. She just wanted them to be simple men. And happy. And now we are alone......
Friend me on PS3 littleaxel_2 2 1
I love all of skynyrd music. My favorite is simple man,and giimmie bk my bullet..I jam that sucker loud a** hell.
Southern rock at its finest!
One of their best songs !
One of my favorite songs! ! Words every man should live by! !!
A great song with a lot of truth....
The greatest band ever that made since in their music. Listen to all words. Wish they were still with us
rickshouseof b e a u t y s
I'll drink to that.
Troubles will come and yhey WILL PASS. And FORGET YOUR LUST FOR THE RICH MANS GOLD..ALL YOU NEED IS IN YOUR SOUL. Right on.
Aside from the part saying ,"remember there is some one up above", this song is beautiful. I think of my step mom tellinv me this..and me telling my son..BE SOMETHING YOU LOVE &UNDERSTAND
One great band ended too soon...
