Simple Man

	   
 
Simple Man  
performed by Charlie Daniels Band 
transcribed by Phillip Taylor 
 
E I ain't nothing but a simple man, D call me a redneck, I reckon that I  
am. 
 
But there's A things goin' on that make me mad down to the E core.  I  
have to  
 
work like a dog to make ends meet.  There's D crooked politicians and crime  
in the  
 
street and I'm A madder than hell and I ain't gonna take it no E more.   
We tell our  
 
kids to just say no and then some D panty waist judge lets a drug dealer go  
and  
 
he A slaps him on the wrist and he turns him back out on the town.  Well,  
if I  
 
E had my way with people sellin' dope, I take a D big tall tree and a  
short piece of  
 
rope, and A hang 'em up high and let 'em swing thll the sun goes E down. 
 
chorus. 
Well you A know whats wrong with the world today. E People done gone and  
 
put their Bibles away, There D livin' by law of the A jungle not the low  
of the  
 
E land.  Well the D good book says it, so I know it's the truth, An E  
eye for an  
 
eye and a tooth for a tooth.  You'd better watch where you go and D  
remember  
 
where you've been, A7 that's the way I see it I'm a simple E man. 
 
Now, I'm the kind of man that wouldn't harm a mouse, but if I catch somebody  
breakin' in my house, I've got a twelve gauge shotgun waitin' on the other  
side.  So don't go pushin' me against my will, I don't want to have to fight  
you but I durn sure will. So if you don't want trouble that you'd better just  
pass me on by.  As far as I'm concerned there aint no excuse for the raping  
and the killing and the child abuse.  And I've got a way to put and end to  
all that mess.  You just take those rascals out in the swamp, put them on  
their knees and tie 'em to a stump and let the rattlers and the bugs and the  
alligators do the rest. 
 
chorus.
