Simple Man | Donovan Woods | Featured Indie Musician

SimpleMan_DWToday’s featured indie musician, Donovan Woods, “Let Us Now Praise Simple Men”. 

“Splitting his time between Nashville and Toronto, Woods’ versatile songs have been recorded by everyone from Canadian indie artists to established stars like Tim McGraw or Alan Doyle (Great Big Sea), and been featured in television shows, major motion pictures and commercials. Piercingly honest and quietly anthemic, Woods sings with a striking sense of the world that produced him – the unsung towns of Canada’s industrial heartland. The result is music that’s transporting, but never loses the dry, self-deprecating humor that has endeared Woods to audiences from the start.” –

Lyrics | “Let Us Now Praise Simple Men”

Sioux Sault Marie, be sweet to me.
I ain’t the dude I used to be.
I curved hockey sticks on the curb in the street.
And Sioux Sault Marie be sweet.
That’s when I was living on college pay.
450 a week, 65 a day.
These days I would not, but back then I might.
‘Cause when I look at it now it’s the same light.
Let us now praise simple men.
Without whom the work may never end.
My and my brother and all his friends,
Let us now praise simple men.
And let us not regret our goodness of heart.
They told me ‘you ain’t got the money, boy, don’t even start’.
These days I would not, but back then I might.
‘Cause when I look at it now it’s the same light.
Yeah, when I look at it now, it’s the same light.

Donovan Woods third record, “Don’t Get Too Grand”, featuring the hit single “Put On Cologne” garnered radio airplay around the world, and was nominated for “Roots & Traditional Album of the Year” at the 2014 Juno Awards.
