This song is about how complicated everything has gotten, and how you need to take life slowly. You will face problems, but they will pass. And you don't have to be famous or rich or be a muscle-head. Just be who you are, and you'll find a girlfriend and you will both be happy. Just be simple. The man's mother told her son to come sit beside her when he was young. His mother taught him many life lessons. If he listened it will help him sometime in his life. She tells him exactly as it says Oh, take your time Don't live too fast, Troubles will come and they will pass.
You'll find a woman and you'll find love and don't forget there is someone up above God. She's also saying that if he listens to what she says then it will make life simple and make him a better person. Then with the lust for a rich man's gold is saying don't think of money first. And anything that he will need in life is in his soul.
All she wants him to do is try and be satified in life. She tells him also that he will find hisself if he follows his heart, lord and nothing else. So just be a simple man. But being wrapped up in MCA business just never let him return.

Graham Nash — Simple Man. I am a simple man So I sing a simple song Never been so much in love And never hurt so bad At the same time I am a simple man And I play a simple tune Wish that I could see you once again Across the room Like the first time Just want to hold you Don't want to hold you down Hear what you're saying And you're spinning my head around And I can't make it alone The ending of the tale Is the singing of the song Make me proud to be your man Only you can make me strong Like the last time Just want to hold you Don't want to hold you down I hear what you're saying And you're spinning my head around I can't make it alone Edit Lyrics.

I can listen to it over and over. No Replies Log in to reply. There was an error. General Comment I might not be completely right about this but the reason this song really gets to me as much as it does is because of how much it reminds me about the girl i love.
I loved her so much but it ended up not working and rather than going after her I let her go because I know it would make her happier. I know exactly what you mean. I too had to let her go. Knowing that we can't be together for any reason at may be Flag yurik on September 23, General Comment i dont think there is too much connotation to mull over here.
As did I. Flag ETMadden on July 25, General Comment i really like this song. General Comment Graham Nash wrote this album after a brake up with Joni Mitchell, and more specifically wrote this song the afternoon after it happened. Pretty emotionally blunt song. Simple yet beautiful really. General Comment I love everything about this song.
By far my favorite song. I can listen to it for hours on end, and never get tired of it. It just makes me feel good. General Comment i think the song is about a man who is so inlove with a woman, but she really hurt him, "Never been so much in love And never hurt so bad At the same time". Just want to hold you Don't want to hold you down. I have had a love for this song since my dad played nash's vinyls from an early age.
General Comment when i do listen to this song i tend to listen to it over and over and over again.

Some of us aren't living in the southern states of the USA and breeding with out siblings.

Flag elwyn on March 21, General Comment i just want to say that this song helped me in so many ways. General Comment This song has played a major role in my life. Anytime I ever felt like something wouldnt happen or work out for the best, this song always reminded me to be optimistic and try to see the good in life.
Seriously there have been times in my life loss of a job, failure of some other sort where this song has really gotten me back on track.
It reminds you me that all the stuff we collect doesn't mean a thing in the end. Only your integrity, your friends, and your soul matter. Don't lose them. My Interpretation Any only child should recognise the lyrics of this song here. For me, many's the time that my mam and I have sat and talked like that.
An amazing song and one that I can seriously relate to. My Opinion Great song. General Comment "be something you love and understand" Hard as Simple General Comment Heard this song for the 1st time on a beer commercialThis song has so many meanings to me. To me its about the wise words of a mother to a son. Don't live too fast, Troubles will come and they will pass. You'll find a woman, yea yea, you'll find love, And don't forget son, There is someone up above.
Ive had bad relationships, ive had bad family issues, ive had it all and lost it all. Dont try to rush your life, be the best you can and dont live too fast. Follow your heart, lord, and nothing else. Just be a simple man, dont lust, greed, or grudge, be the best you can be and the world will come to you. This is the first Skynyrd I ever heard sitting in the lounge with my dad, from that day I have been a fan of these guys, this song is about a mother who is trying to teach her son to humble and not to want for all the fancy things in life,hence the phrase"dont get your lust on a rich man's gold all that you need is in your soul" and just to be a the best he can be,and to be happy with what he has in life.
Ronnie Van Zant was an awesome song writer equal to one of my other favourites Paul Rodgers, this is a beautiful song and will always be a classic.
