"Simple Life" as written by Rube Bloom and Harry Ruby....
Yeah, these late nights aren't what they used to be
Traded fireflies for every headlight that I see

The country roads that raised me, I see them now but as a memory
Everything's good, everything's fine
It's somebody's home but it'll never be mine

You and me riding round in the Chevy
Two green lights and we're outta the city
It's all I've ever known, when I don't know where to go
Got no jobs and we got no money,
Got no cares, when we hit the ground running
Nothing but summer sky
Just living that simple life

All this sunshine, I'm just wishin' it would rain
A thousand faces, but not one of them knows my name
Cause I

Say goodbye to what feels right, football games on a Friday night
Everything's good, everything's fine
It's somebody's home but it'll never be mine

You and me riding round in the Chevy
Two green lights and we're outta the city
It's all I've ever known, when I don't know where to go
Got no jobs and we got no money,
Got no cares, when we hit the ground running
Nothing but summer sky
Just living that simple life

Just like the seasons change, I know things'll never be the same
I'd give it all just to feel that way again

When it was you and me riding round in the Chevy
Two green lights and we're outta the city
It's all I've ever known, when I don't know where to go

Got no jobs and we got no money,
Got no cares, when we hit the ground running
Nothing but summer sky
Just living that simple life

You and me riding round in the Chevy
Two green lights and we're outta the city
It's all I've ever known, when I don't know where to go
Got no jobs and we got no money,
Got no cares, when we hit the ground running
Nothing but summer sky
Just living that simple life

I'd leave this all behind,
To just live that simple life
