"SIMPLE MAN"

Verse 1
Walkin' down the old road,
Everyone I see is so sad and cold.
People live with so much shame,
And try to hide the pain they feel inside.
But with a smile on my face that can't be taken away,
With my worn-out shoes, and tattered hat,
My old guitar, and gunny sack,
I'm happy and free, oh, yes, I am.

Chorus 1
I'm a simple man, yes, I'm simple, but I've found
Something worth so much more than all the gold in this world.
I'm just a poor man, you see,
But the greatest joy I've found in life
Is sharing my Jesus with others on this cold road of life
Who are simple people, too.

Interlude: ---

Verse 2
Though you're not out in the cold,
You've got friends and a home,
When you cry yourself to sleep at night,
Don't tell me you're not thinking,
"Something just isn't right." I know you do, girl,
But you're not alone, 'cause I don't think there is a single soul
Who hasn't felt the way you're feeling now.
I know, 'cause I've been there myself many times before, oh yes, I have.

Chorus 2
I'm a simple man, yes, I'm simple, but I've found
Something worth so much more than all the gold in this world.
I'm just a poor man, you see,
But the greatest joy I've found in life
Is sharing my Jesus with others on this cold road of life.

Bridge
Since I've found my Jesus, He's brought me back to life,
And He's filled my wasted world with wonderful things.
He's been with me, and He takes me as I am.
And if you'd like to know Him, I'll take you by the hand,
I'll lead you to the Man; you know, there's nothing He won't understand.
Day by day He hears me, and He's with me as I pray.

Chorus
I'm a simple man, yes, I'm simple, but I've found
Something worth so much more than all the gold in this world.
I'm just a poor man, you see,
But the greatest joy I've found in life
Is sharing my Jesus with others on this cold road of life
Who are simple people, too.
