I left my home town
Went back to basics
I had no friends
Now what a shame
I wrote my mother nearly every day
She didn't write back, not a page.

I tore the place down
I tore the place down
And I hope you're gonna come back someday
I can't go on living this way
I'm a simple man, I live afraid.

Built my homestead, mostly made of wooden planks that I had found.
I brought my girlfriend but she just left me
And ____ to make me feel down.

I tore the place down.
I tore the place down.
And I hope you're gonna come back someday,
I can't go on living this way
I'm a simple man, I live afraid.

Tore the place down and you don't mind
It only made it easier for me to find.
I was just a summer night (?) now you've got up and you're gone.
I tore the place down the other day,
It only made it easier for me to stay.
It was just a summer night (?) and I got up and you're gone.
Oh now, hope you're gonna come back someday,
I can't go on living this way.
I'm a simple man I live afraid.


(Done by ear, sorry for any mistakes! Best I could get)
