A SIMPLE LIFE

By Keith Howard
(Opening Chorus)

Well I love to live a simple life

Bathe in the love of my beautiful wife

A man can’t ask for anymore

And each morning as the sun comes up

I’m grateful and pure thunderstruck

My soul’s richer than it was, the day before



God and his angels they’re a weeping

And my house just won’t stop leaking

Does it have to rain anymore?

And the bills they all need paying

Got no pigs for a slaying

But I sure as hell don’t feel like I'm poor



(Chorus)

Cos I love to live a simple life

Bathe in the love of my beautiful wife

A man can’t ask for anymore

And each morning as the sun comes up

I’m grateful and pure thunderstruck

My soul’s richer than it was, the day before



Gonna have to fix that broken roof

See to a shoe on my horse’s hoof

Ain’t got time to do much more

There’s no shirking life’s demands on me

At home is where I love to be

Building memories has never been a chore



(Chorus)

Cos I love to live a simple life

Bathe in the love of my beautiful wife

A man can’t ask for anymore

And each morning as the sun comes up

I’m grateful and pure thunderstruck

My soul’s richer than it was, the day before



Got to go and plough my neighbour’s land

Folk’s sometimes need a helping hand

But that’s not always plain to see

Yet time catches up with every man

So I’ll help out others if I can

Hope one day they’ll do the same for me



(Chorus)

Cos I love to live a simple life

Bathe in the love of my beautiful wife

A man can’t ask for anymore

And each morning as the sun comes up

I’m grateful and pure thunderstruck

My soul’s richer than it was, the day before



Gotta be cleaning out the stable

Stack some hay if I’m still able

Chores that last as long as the day

Then I get to rest my weary head

As my sweet lady, she comes to bed

And shows me love in every way



(Final Chorus)

Cos I love to live a simple life

Bathe in the love of my beautiful wife

A man can’t ask for anymore

And each morning as the sun comes up

I’m grateful and pure thunderstruck

My soul’s richer than it was, the day before
