I've had a skeleton of this song around for a long time. I pulled it out recently and rehashed some of it and decided it needed a place to exist, so here it is.

To the simple life.

Thanks for listening.

Recorded on a 1938 Martin 000-18


I haven’t got too much to show
By: Martin Gilmore (Timtomtodd music, ASCAP) 2012

I’m no hero, and I’m no saint
Most folks don’t know my name
I live a simple life I’ve always been that way
Got a cabin on a hill
And a job at the lumber mill
That’s always been enough for me

I may die poor I may die young
From too many days out in the sun
I may die hauling this lumber load
But I’ll do the best I can
And die a happy man
Even though I haven’t got too much to show

I’m no liar and I’m no cheat
I’m not filled with deceit
I’m an honest man I’ve always been that way
I’ll help you if I can, If you need I’ll lend a hand
I just live the best I can from day to day
