He could do anything, so easy without fail
He was like superman, with a hammer and nail
We were inseparable, like winter from the cold
I was learning how to be, a man when I get old

A simple life and a simple song, simple things like right and wrong or love

Hot summer days of work, splitting wood out in the yard
The axe's fall shattering, the sun beating on the barn
The weeks in the rear view, we're driving to the lake
Mama's drinking Chardonnay, Dads burning the steak

A simple life and a simple song, simple thing like right and wrong or love, love

Someday we'll go kayak the Kinnickinnic until sundown
Someday, I'll grow tall and be wise I'll be him in disguise

Can't wait 'til I get big, see how I line up
Ain't much but a young man, and there ain't much in my cup
But if I work my fingers to the bone, live and learn and build a home
Live a simple life, sing a simple song 'bout love


from To Live and Die in the Midwest, released September 21, 2016
