     F       C          Dm
Mama told me, when I was young 
         F         C        Dm
Come sit beside me, my only son
           F       C         Dm
And listen closely, to what I say.
            F
And if you do this
         C           Dm 
It will help you some sunny day.

Interlude: F  C Dm
 
            F    C               Dm 
Take your time... Don't live too fast,
                F   C               Dm
Troubles will come,  and they will pass.
          F     C                Dm   
Go find a woman, and you'll find love, 
               F
And don't forget that,
          C          Dm  
There is someone up above.

Chorus:
          F     C         Dm
And be a simple  kind of man.
       F     C             Dm
Be something  you love and understand. 
      F     C         Dm
Be a simple  kind of man.
           F       C    
Won't you do this for me son,
        Dm 
If you can?

Verse -same three chords-:
Forget your lust for the rich man's gold 
All that you need is in your soul, 
And you can do this if you try. 
All that I want for you my son, 
Is to be satisfied.

Chorus:
          F     C         Dm
And be a simple  kind of man.
       F     C             Dm
Be something  you love and understand. 
      F     C         Dm
Be a simple  kind of man.
           F       C    
Won't you do this for me son,
        Dm 
If you can?

Verse -same three chords-:
Boy, don't you worry... you'll find yourself. 
Follow you heart and nothing else. 
And you can do this if you try. 
All I want for you my son, 
Is to be satisfied.

Chorus:
          F     C         Dm
And be a simple  kind of man.
       F     C             Dm
Be something  you love and understand. 
      F     C         Dm
Be a simple  kind of man.
           F       C    
Won't you do this for me son,
        Dm 
If you can?

I only came by to check out this song because Supernatural actor Jensen Ackles (Dean Winchester) covered it and I am obsessed. It’s so beautiful!

YESSS!!

Becky-srs

You have a strumming pattern?.?

emmLLLL

Becky-srs I found one called D-D-D-U-D for basically the whole song, but doing it twice doing the Am.
And then you can change it for the Am if you want, I’m just not sure I can make out the pattern there unfortunately…
But here’s the link to the video where I found it:)
