(E) I ain't nothing but a simple man, (D) call me a redneck, I reckon that I 
am.

But there's (A) things goin' on that make me mad down to the (E) core.  I 
have to 

work like a dog to make ends meet.  There's (D) crooked politicians and crime 
in the 

street and I'm (A) madder than hell and I ain't gonna take it no (E) more.  
We tell our 

kids to just say no and then some (D) panty waist judge lets a drug dealer go 
and 

he (A) slaps him on the wrist and he turns him back out on the town.  Well, 
if I 

(E) had my way with people sellin' dope, I take a (D) big tall tree and a 
short piece of 

rope, and (A) hang 'em up high and let 'em swing thll the sun goes (E) down.

chorus.
Well you (A) know whats wrong with the world today. (E) People done gone and 

put their Bibles away, There (D) livin' by law of the (A) jungle not the low 
of the 

(E) land.  Well the (D) good book says it, so I know it's the truth, An (E) 
eye for an 

eye and a tooth for a tooth.  You'd better watch where you go and (D) 
remember 

where you've been, (A7) that's the way I see it I'm a simple (E) man.

Now, I'm the kind of man that wouldn't harm a mouse, but if I catch somebody 
breakin' in my house, I've got a twelve gauge shotgun waitin' on the other 
side.  So don't go pushin' me against my will, I don't want to have to fight 
you but I durn sure will. So if you don't want trouble that you'd better just 
pass me on by.  As far as I'm concerned there aint no excuse for the raping 
and the killing and the child abuse.  And I've got a way to put and end to 
all that mess.  You just take those rascals out in the swamp, put them on 
their knees and tie 'em to a stump and let the rattlers and the bugs and the 
alligators do the rest.

chorus.
