  1. Roots

From the album Better Land

Lyrics

Have you ever seen the spring
In East Tennessee
Where the wildflowers all start popping up
The best damn blues
I've ever heard
You won't find in any back alley club
I've got roots here, but this is not a place I know
Just arrived this morning on an April Breeze
Country roads can't take you home
When you've got no home to go to
The more I move the less I need
On this winding road
We're rolling stones
Chasing the summer down the coast
Feet up on the dash in the passenger seat
A long way from home
There's not much we know
Just watching life as it unfolds
If you love yourself you've gotta set yourself free
Set yourself free
Rest stops in Birmingham
Gambling by the sea
Won 25 plays at the Scarlet Pearl
While up on LSD
The west is where I cut my teeth
The east is where I lean
I'm a northbound train but these southern winds
Have a hold on me
I've got roots here, but this is not a place I know
Just arrived this morning on an April Breeze
Country roads can't take you home
When you've got no home to go to
The more I move the less I need
On this winding road
We're rolling stones
Chasing the summer down the coast
Feet up on the dash in the passenger seat
A long way from home
There's not much we know
Just watching life as it unfolds
If you love yourself you've gotta set yourself free
