Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 8/26/18


Happy Sunday! It’s time again for SLS, and Helen has given the prompt word, ‘plan’. Thanks, Helen!

At first I didn’t think I could find a song for this, and so I started googling. I found a lot of songs with the word ‘plan’ in the titles, but none I recognized. So, I kept thinking. A plan…songs about a plan…planning something…what rhymes with plan? Man…man with a plan… Maybe it didn’t have to actually have the word ‘plan’ in there, and could be a sort of a guideline or suggestion of something to do, and plan for. Yes!

Here’s a song I love very much ever since I first heard it. It seems to be a mother talking to her son, giving him her thoughts on how to live a good and satisfying life. Her words to him were a plan for him to follow, if he could, to ensure his happiness in the future.


“Simple Man”, by Lynyrd Skynyrd, was released from their album, “Pronounced Leh-nerd Skin-nerd”, in 1973. It was written by Ronnie Van Zant and Gary Rossington, and is on the Sounds of the South label.




Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️

    • Thanks, Jill!
      I liked the video too, and that it had the lyrics already on there. Helen’s prompts most always make me think, and pay attention to the words to a song. 🙂

  1. We were huge Lynyrd Skynyrd fans back in high school & Free Bird was our class song. I dedicated this song to both my sons when they graduated college. Good advice never goes out of style!

  2. Thank you for doing this post about this amazing song. I am a grandmother now, and I think of my eight year old grandson. The song has brought tears to my eyes. So utterly beautiful, and I hope I could pass this on to him.
