SIMPLE LIFE
Nanci Griffith


(chorus)
I want a simple life
Like my mother
One true love for my older years
I don't want your wars
To take my children
I want a simple life'while I'm here

The sun and moon walk hand in hand together
Trading places shining on the truth
The moon moves the bottoms of the oceans
So, the sun can bring a farmer's hands to you

(chorus)

We all seek comfort in the light of day
And our tears can wash off in the rain
Everything we need is all around us
In simple time and simple ways

Mother nature talks
Whispering her thoughts
So the paths we choose to cross
Walk one more day

(chorus)
