Roots and Wings

Album: Single release only (2015)
  • I got red dirt stains
    On my boots and jeans
    Calloused fingers
    From my guitar strings
    Wild like the wind
    In the tall pine trees
    I got roots
    And I got wings

    I raise my glass
    On a Saturday night
    I thank the Lord above
    On my Sunday drive
    For Daddy's hands
    And Mama's dreams
    He gave me roots
    She gave me wings

    He said run on love
    And run on life
    And plant some seeds
    Until you're tired
    Don't take anything at all for granted

    She said raise your hands
    And raise your babies
    Be yourself
    And never change it
    Be everything you ever wanna be

    He said run on love
    And run on life
    And plant some seeds
    And take your time
    Don't take anything at all for granted

    She said raise your hands
    And raise your babies
    Be yourself
    And never change it
    Be everything you ever wanna be

    I saddle up
    When I get down
    Sing every night
    In a different town
    And I've got a man who wears my ring
    And I got roots
    And I got wings
    Yeah I got roots
    I got wings Writer/s: Miranda Lambert
