I wish things were simple like they used to be
When cowboys rode horses, and were heroes to me
My Mother was a lady, and my Dad was a man
And I wish things were simple again

I wish things were simple, like when I was a kid
A man just got paid for the work that he did
And a song could be played for a nickel back then
And I wish things were simple again

But even the blue skies roar with thunder
Men fly above like birds
Nothin' is simple, not even a love song
The story gets lost in the words

But there's no way to rewind, it's gone with the wind
And I wish things were simple again

Even the blue skies roar with thunder
Men fly above like birds
Nothin' is simple, not even a love song
The story gets lost in the words

There's no way to rewind, it's gone with the wind
And I wish things were simple again
Oh, I wish things were simple again
