Simple Man Lyrics

I ain't nothing but a simple man
call me a redneck, I reckon that I am
But there's things goin' on
that make me mad down to the core
I have to work like a dog to make ends meet
There's crooked politicians
and crime in the street
and I'm madder than hell and
I ain't gonna take it no more

We tell our kids to just say no
and then some panty waist judge
lets a drug dealer go
And he slaps him on the wrist
and he turns him back out on the town
Well, if I had my way with people sellin' dope
I'd take a big tall tree and a short piece of rope
and hang 'em up high and let 'em
swing till the sun goes down

(chorus)
Well you know what's wrong with the world today?
People done gone and put their Bibles away
There livin' by law of the jungle
not the law of the land
Well the good book says it
so I know it's the truth
An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth
You'd better watch where you go
and remember where you've been
That's the way I see it I'm a simple man

Now I'm the kind of man
that wouldn't harm a mouse
But if I catch somebody
breakin' in my house
I've got a twelve gauge shotgun
waitin' on the other side
So don't go pushin' me against my will
I don't want to have to fight you
but I durn sure will

So if you don't want trouble
then you'd better just pass me on by
As far as I'm concerned there ain't no excuse
for the raping and the killing and the child abuse
And I've got a way to put and end to all that mess
You just take those rascals out in the swamp
put them on their knees and tie 'em to a stump
and let the rattlers and the bugs
and the alligators do the rest

(chorus)
