'Simple Life' Lyrics:

This shanty apartment
on the left side of downtown
it sure gets cramped here
but it'll have to do for now
As I walk down these paved streets
I close my eyes and can't help but think
about a simple life, a big blue sky
a view of the country side

I'll take a warm, clear blue sky
and fresh water springs
Kids playing outside 'til the dinner bell rings
Hot bicuits and butter are our fast food thing
I wanna leave this all behind
back to the simple life

There ain't nothin wrong with those big city neon lights
But I still prefer the Milky Way on a summer night
to kick off my heels, put on my boots
I'll let my hair down wild and loose
I don't think it's hard to choose
a piece of American pie

I'll take a warm, clear blue sky
and fresh water springs
Kids playing outside 'til the dinner bell rings
Hot bicuits and butter are our fast food thing
I wanna leave this all behind
back to the simple life

And if I ever get back home
I'll finally be where I belong
And oh Lord it's been so long
But there's one thing that remains the same
the few good things that'll never change
What I wouldn't trade for anything

To have a warm, clear blue sky
and fresh water springs
Kids playing outside 'til the dinner bell rings
Hot bicuits and butter are our fast food thing
I wanna leave this all behind
back to the simple life

Oh I wanna go back

to the simple life
