Country Roots

(Pat Robinson, Brad Coleman)



Grandma raised the kids alone
Grandpa sent the money home
Daddy had to leave to learn a trade
Overalls and underpaid

CHORUS
This family tree has country roots
There's southern pride walkin' in these boots
What autumn leaves the spring renews
This family tree has country roots

Now mom became mama when she turned 18
We didn't have a lot but the clothes were clean
Side by side, standing tall
They helped each other through it all

CHORUS

BRIDGE
You know we've come a long, long way
By holdin' on to yesterday

CHORUS

Now to this man I will be true
We've learned to live our "I love yous"
In the arms of no one else
A little respect for yourself
