Roots Of Country



(Jeffrey Steele/Dick Rudolph/Chris Farren)
Family together front porch swingDaddy get his guitar and we all singGrandma rockin' the baby to sleepMomma keepin' time at the sewing machine
That's the way it was handed down to meAnd that's what I still believeMusic planted the seed inside of meSongs about God and familyAnd makin' the most of simple thingsThese are my roots,the roots of country
They sing in the factories,churches and the fieldsWords from the hear,stories so realA common people with a common bondWorkin' together and singin' along
That's the way it was handed down to meAnd that's what I still believeMusic planted the seed inside of meSingin' the songs that we all knowGathering around the radioYeah,these are my roots,the roots of country
Kentucky bluegrass,western swing (The seed inside of me)The singin' cowboys and honky tonk queensThe good old days they may be goneBut the tradition still lives on,yeah
Music planted the seed inside of me(Songs about God and family)Songs about God and family(Makin' the most of simple things)Makin' the most of simple things(These are my roots)And I'm proud of my roots(The roots of country)Oh,yeah
These are my rootsThe roots of country
These are my rootsAh,yeah
