My simple words

My simple words

I have no words all big and grand
My songs aren’t filled with art
I do not know those fancy words
I just come from my heart
Writing poems, it seems to me
Is all about my feelings
And when I write I like to know
That my poems get folk reeling
 
 If I can write and make folk cry
Or dance, or laugh, or sing
I am more than happy, then
I hope to them I’ll bring
Some feelings that will heal their souls
Then I have done my stuff
If I can give some heart a lift
Then I have done enough.

I write my songs for the common man
For I know he’ll understand
I never had an education
My words aren’t big and grand
 But I hope as my words flow on out
They’ll cause some soul to grow
I want to touch somebodies heart
And cause their days to glow.
