[Verse 1]
My first best friend was a 6 string
Took him with me everywhere I go
When I was 18, bought a Dodge van
Found a drummer and made the road my home

[Pre-Chorus]
Ooh, I wouldn't change a thing
It made the man I am today

[Chorus]
My roots always keep me grounded
Roots, remind me where I'm from
Even when I'm a thousand miles away from my roots
I'm home

[Verse 2]
Every Friday, you could find me
At Dixie Tavern, playin' with my band
We'd start the show with a round of whiskey
And play our hearts out and wished it'd never end

[Pre-Chorus]
Ooh, I wouldn't change a thing
It made the man I am today

[Chorus]
My roots always keep me grounded
Roots, remind me where I'm from
Even when I'm a thousand miles away from my roots
I'm home

[Verse 3]
We'd get 'em singin' "Don't Stop Believing"
Then follow up with a cold beer on a Friday night
Always dreamin' one day we'd play with
All our heroes we cover every night

[Pre-Chorus]
Flyin' high all our dreams came true
You've given me wings

[Chorus]
And roots, always keep me grounded
Roots, remind me where I'm from
Even when I'm a thousand miles away from my roots
I'm home
My roots, always keep me grounded
Roots, remind me where I'm from
My roots, even when I'm a thousand miles away from my roots
I'm home

[Outro]
Don't give up
Hold on a little longer
What don't kill you
Only makes you stronger
Don't give up
Hold on a little longer
What don't kill you
Only makes you stronger
Don't give up
Hold on a little longer
What don't kill you
Only makes you stronger
Don't give up
Hold on a little longer
What don't kill you
Only makes you stronger
Don't give up
Hold on a little longer
What don't kill you
Only gives you stronger roots
