DIG YOUR ROOTS

"Dig Your Roots"

Dig Your Roots

Yeah I grew up 10 minutes from the sticks, 10 minutes from the beach
And there ain’t a bible verse y’all, I ain’t heard a preacher preach
Mom and dad up in the bleachers
Screaming while I pitch
B&D up on the speakers
Finally ridin’ around town with my best friends
Ain’t life like a whirlwind
One second I’m playin’ checkers with Grandma, then my world ends
I used to hear my Granddaddy say “Before it’s too late…”

CHORUS
You gotta dig your roots, ‘fore the sun goes down
Show some love back to your hometown
Fall in love, plant some seeds
Carve some names in the family tree
Raise your kids, love your wife
Put God first just to live your life
Hey I think I’m gonna go and get a little more dirt on my boots
You gotta dig your roots
(You dig 'em, you love 'em, you gotta put 'em in the ground for someone)

Yeah I'm a long haired, tattooed, feather in the wind
Yeah a good ol' boy just like my old man
Every night when I’m singing, I know he’s looking down
Up there next to PawPaw, got the best seats in the house
When I close my eyes I can still hear him say
The same thing I’m gonna tell my kids…

REPEAT CHORUS

I’m so proud of where I came from (it's every part of me)
This town is who I am (my names on every street)
And the way that I was raised up (yeah you best believe)
Made me a better man (just like my daddy is)

I’m so proud of where I came from (it's every part of me)
And damn I love this land (my names on every street)
And the way that I was raised up (yeah you best believe)
Made me a better man

REPEAT CHORUS
