Merle HaggardRoots of my Raising Текст

G C G 
I left the four lane highway took a blacktop seven miles
A7 D7
Down by the old country school I went to as a child
G C G
Two miles down a gravel road I could see the proud old home
D7 G
A tribute to a way of life that's almost come and gone

C G
The roots of my raising run deep
A7 D7
I come back for the strength that I need
C G D7
And hope comes no matter how far down I sink
C D7 G
The roots of my raising run deep

Spoken verse:
C G
I pulled into the driveway Lord it sure was good to be there
And I could see through the open door that Dad was
A7 D7
Asleep in his favorite chair
G C G
In his hand was a picture of Mom and I remembered
how close they were
So I just turned away I didn't want to wake him
D7 G
And spoil his dreams of her

G C G
А Christian Mom who had the strength for life the way she did
A7 D7
Then to pull that apron off and do the Charleston for us kids
G C G
Dad a quiet man who gentle voice was seldom heard
D7 G
Who could borrow money at the bank simply on his word
