THE ROOTS OF MY RAISIN' Merle Haggard I left the four lane highway to flatop seven miles Down by the old country school I went to as a child Two miles down a gravel road I could see the proud old home A tribute to a way of life that's almost come and gone The roots of my rasin' run deep I've come back for the strength that I need And hope comes no matter how far down I sink The roots of my rasin' run deep (spoken) I pulled into the driveway, Lord, it sure was good to be there and I could see through the open door that Dad was asleep in his favorite chair. 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 and spoil his dreams of her. A christian who had the strength to lie the way she did Then to pull that apron off and do the Charleston for us kids Dad, a quiet man, who's gentle voice was seldom heard Who could borrow money at the bank simply on his word The roots of my rasin' run deep I've come back for the strength that I need And hope comes no matter how far down I sink The roots of my rasin' run deep The roots of my rasin' run deep
