Chris Stapleton - A Simple Song Lyrics

Lately things are on my mind
Good news is hard to find
And I work on the factory line
And all I do is stay behind
Call my mama like I should
She says daddy ain't doing too good
Me and him should wet a line
Just can't seem to find the time

But I love my life
Man it's something to see
It's the kids and the dogs and you and me
It's the way it's alright
When everything goes wrong
It's the sound of a slow simple song

I finally saved some money up
'Til I had to fix my truck
Talked to brother the other day
He didn't have too much to say
Tryna quit these cigarettes
I can't seem to kick em yet
Sister got laid off last fall
And I got high cholesterol

But I love my life
Man it's something to see
It's the kids and the dogs and you and me
It's the way it's alright
When everything goes wrong
It's the sound of a slow simple song

But I love my life
Man it's something to see
It's the kids and the dogs and you and me
It's the way it's alright
When everything goes wrong
It's the sound of a slow simple song

  12. Camacho Amoateng

    i wish this song had a video so we can how the lyrics can relate.

  13. Kylie Pollert

    0:06-0:09 is exactly how "The House That Built Me" starts out

  14. Misur Obando

  22. Greg Sovine

    Saw him Saturday, absolutely amazing. He has more talent in his pinky than most of the stuff you hear on the radio today.

  23. Zeducation

    This is by far my favorite song of his

  24. Neil

    Really enjoy this man, but pretty much a modern version of Kenny Rogers for all you who might have forgotten who he is. ☺

  25. NC RC


  26. Daniel H.

    I know it's a strange comparison, but Chris makes me think of a Male Stevie Nicks. Songs that enchant you. Seemingly singing, of your own personal journey. This man is golden and the rare blessing of a good wife is something that gives a man hope. Yet validation within himself. CHRIS I love your gift bro, thanks for sharing it with us. 😎🤘

  27. Tito Vazquez

    "Finally saved some money up, until I had to fix my truck"
    I felt that

  29. Austin Lynch

    Does anyone have any idea what song the very beginning guitar part of this song reminds you of? It’s stuck in my head but I can’t remember it.

    Austin Lynch

    lisa benecke lol idk. I can almost remember it. I wanna say it’s a patriotic song. But I can’t put my finger on it

  30. Gerardo Sanchez

    Good Good music!!!!!

  31. Logan Howell

    a simple song of growing old.

  34. Troy Willis

    This song puts a lump in my throat. I can't see how it has 600 dislikes. Y'all are missing somethin in your soul.

  35. Troy Willis

    Out of all the guys in the Nashville industry, I respect this guy the most. Alot of big names are who they are because of this guys songwriting. Why the hell was he a back up in Luke Bryans band? Really Nashville?

  36. Mak Siccar

    Every song is an instant classic. This guy is a living legend.

    Carolina R.

    Wow 🙌

  68. Amelia Katherine

    I lost my dad in 2014. He was only 42 and I 18. He's been listening to Chris since he was in the steeldrivers. Every Chris song reminds me of him. His name was also Chris and almost every song Chris has, is one my dad would've written too. He was a musician too and had lead a life so similar to Chris'. I miss him everyday and some days, Chris' music is hard to listen to, even if he is one of my favorite musicians. This song speaks to me so much, I cry every time. I can't explain how much I connect to it and how much my dad would've loved this song. I'm hoping to a get tattoo with some lyrics from this song and see Chris in concert. Something my dad never got to. I don't know why I'm writing this, this song just makes me very nostalgic. 🖤

    Mackey Mac

    Amelia your post just touched me. I accept my mortality, but I am not looking forward to losing my folks. I hope you are blessed and prosperous in your future. God Bless You. My condolences to your family and dear father.
    Mikey MC

    Amelia Katherine

    @Mackey Mac Thank you so much. :) Wishing you the best

  69. MPK112233

    Not my genre..but I caught this on the radio. Excellent track..I'm happy I caught the name of it so I was able to look it up.

  70. David Cervantes

    When he says, " it's the kids and the dogs, and u and me" I don't know y but that part hit me......😔🔥

  71. SomeReallyUniqueName

    Very similar to Mark Knopfler songs (that is a good thing), yet I am at a loss to put my finger on the style. Not country nor bluegrass ... But none the less great

  72. dave reece

    He can pull right on the heart strings, I hope he don’t go anywhere anytime soon. County music desperately needed this man.

  73. Music I.S Mya Scape

    I can’t believe anyone would give this song a thumbs down

  74. Carolina R.

    AMAZING💫💫 💫💫💫

  75. jonysoares150

    My name is Jony, from Brazil.
    I´m your fan.

  76. Carolina R.

    Love your voice Chris 🌹

  77. Carolina R.

    STAR 💖

  78. Joe Hall

    Ppl didn’t even realize the TALENT this MAN has on an ACOUSTIC GUITAR!!! Sit down and try to play one of his songs, pretty much every song will make your FINGERS BLEED! He’s not given near enough respect for that alone. Every song might not a hit but I can say this you’ll have hell trying to fill his shoes on an acoustic

  79. Carolina R.

    Love this song 🙏🙏 Beautiful 👏👏👏💜

  80. jose pineda

    And herein lies the proof that the man can sing about anything and make it sound amazing. High cholesterol... I mean, who else could do it? :) :) :)

  83. Joshua Jones

    I've never heard such an outstanding, amazing song depicting the life of the average man, one with struggle, just getting by, but keeping his head up. I have no words to say, except "marvelous".

  84. Iris Parrish

    Voice is so amazing👌🏽 have this song on repeat
