Back To Her Roots
Lyrics
BACK TO HER ROOTS


She graduated last May from Texas State
Got a job workin' 8 to 5
It was car pool lanes and commuter trains
So different from her hometown sites

After all the knowledge she bought in college
She learned it ain't worth a dime
Cause you can't put a price on the simple life
Like the one she left behind

Now she's getting back to her roots
T-shirts, denim and cowboy boots
And all the things that make her who she is
Hauling hay 'til the sun goes down
Sunday dinner on the ground
Ready for a change, she tried something new
Now she's getting back, getting back to her roots

She traded her Accord for a 4X4
With a gun rack in the cab
After a good night's rest she headed West
Without looking back

She knows she can work as a retail clerk
At her hometown Tractor Supply
The blonde hair will go as her true colors show
The past that she can't hide

Now she's getting back to her roots
T-shirts, denim and cowboy boots
And all the things that make her who she is
Hauling hay 'til the sun goes down
Sunday dinner on the ground
Ready for a change, she tried something new
Now she's getting back, getting back to her roots

She went out on a limb when she decided to leave
The security of her family tree

Now she's getting back to her roots
T-shirts, denim and cowboy boots
And all the things that make her who she is
Hauling hay 'til the sun goes down
Sunday dinner on the ground
Ready for a change, she tried something new
Now she's getting back, getting back to her roots
