She was standin' on a flatbed 
Wavin' at the lawn chairs  Fourth of July parade  There were tootsie rolls flyin'
Old vets cryin'
 Everybody had a flag to wave

Hey hey hey! Hey hey hey!
Back to the simple things

Well, it's been such a long time
 Gonna dig around and try to find
That lonely fishin' pole
Yeah, I ain't gotta catch a thing 
Just drift off on a shady bank
And listen to the river roll

Hey hey hey! Hey hey hey!
Back to the simple 
Back to the simple things

Back to the there ain't no rush
Back to the nothin' much
Back to the back and forth front porch swing
Back to the back yard
Back to a million stars
Back when it used to be
 Simple things

 Sometimes I wanna take this phone 
Find a bridge to slow down on and
Give that thing a whirl 
Yeah, take a dirt road, take your hand
For a while just be the man who's
All about you girl

Hey! Hey hey hey! Hey hey hey!
Back when it used to be
Girl just you and me
Back to the simple things

 Simple things
Back to the simple things
