?Simple Life?

Stuck In Traffic On My Way To Work Just Watchin? My Life Go By
Lookin? Out The Window At The Old Farm Houses Underneath A Big Blue Sky
I Think Back To Another Time And The House Where I Was Born
No Busy Streets, No Traffic Jams, Just Fields Of Wheat And Corn

Up Every Morning At The Crack Of Dawn There Was Always Work To Do
Fillin? That Silo Full Of Grain Or Plowin? A Field Or Two
When The Work Was Done And Supper Was Over Papa?d Carry Me Up To Bed
And Just Before He?d Close The Door, This Is What He Said...

(Chorus)
I Just Want A Simple Life, A Livin? Everyday
Plowin? Fields And Plantin? Corn And Stackin? Bales Of Hay
Some Folks Crave The City Lights But I?m Not One Of Them
Just Give Me A Family I Can Love And A Field That I Can Tend

One Good Tractor Was All We Had And The Ground Beneath Our Feet
We Planted Corn That Grew So Tall And Miles Of Golden Wheat
My Papa At The Wheel And Me In The Back A-Singin? A Lively Tune
Sometimes We Worked Into The Night Underneath The Harvest Moon

(Chorus)
