A Simple Life by Ricky Skaggs


	
G                  C        D
Simple life is the life for me 
  Em                   C   D
A man and a wife and a family 
G                        C        D
And the Lord up above who knows I'm tryin'
 G                          D       G
To live a simple life in a difficult time.

Am             C                  D
I used to sit around fussin' at the phone all day
Am           C              D
Windin' up alone and it'd make me say
Em                C        D
Never again will I be that way
Em               C          G
Never again will I be that way.

'Cause a simple life is the life for me
A man and a wife and a family
The Lord up above he knows I'm tryin'
To live a simple life in a difficult time.

Well, I work six days and I rest for one
'Cause the ol' rat race ain't never been won
And I sit back and I watch 'em run
I kick on back and I watch 'em run.

'Cause the simple life is the life for me
A man and a wife and a family
The Lord up above who knows I'm tryin'
To live a simple life in a difficult time.

Simple life in a difficult time.


The simple life is the life for me
A man and a wife and a family
And the Lord up above who knows I'm tryin'
To live a simple life in a difficult time.

The simple life is the life for me
A man and a wife and a family
And the Lord up above who knows I'm tryin'.
To live a simple life in a difficult time.

The simple life is the life for me
A steak and a knife and a glass of tea
The Lord up above he knows I'm tryin'
To live a simple life in a difficult time...
