LYRIC

Been like a rolling wheel in these fertile fields

Since I was five years old

Between then and now I bet I’ve pulled this plow

About a million miles or so

I have never been nowhere, oh, but I don’t care

To me there is no where else to go

And in all and all I am, it’s just who I am

It’s as complicated as new plowed earth

Simple as dirt

I love my wife and kids just like my daddy did

And my daddy’s dad before

And their philosophy was handed down to me

Life is easy as a hard day’s work

Simple as dirt

Well, I live my life one day at a time

That’s the only way I know

Oh lord, I have paid my debts and I have no regrets

And I reap the things I sow

And I’ll keep pulling weeds and planting seeds

Until I reach the end of the road

But you can lay me down this familiar ground

And on my stone carve just three words

Simple as dirt

I love my wife and kids just like my daddy did

And my daddy’s dad before

And their philosophy was handed down to me

Life is easy as a hard day’s work

Simple as dirt

Been like a rolling wheel through these fertile fields

Since I was five years old
