McDonald, Shawn - Roots Lyrics




I've heard it said that a wise man
Does not live on bread alone
But off the everlasting words
Dripping from the Almighty's tongue

And I've heard it said that a wise man
Does not look at himself in the mirror
Then turn away and walk
Forgetting what he looks like standing there

Oh, men like these
They are just like trees
Planted near streams of water
With roots that grow
Deep, deep into the ground

I've heard it said that a wise man
Ignores the call from the corner
Even with her seductive eyes
He turns away, he doesn't listen to her lies

And oh, men like these
They are just like trees
Planted near streams of water
With roots that grow
Deep, deep into the ground

Into the ground
Into the ground
Into the ground

Into the ground
Into the ground
Into the ground

And oh, men like these
They are just like trees
Planted near streams of water
With roots that grow
Deep, deep into the ground

Into the ground
Into the ground
Into the ground

Into the ground
Into the ground
Into the ground

  1. Asaph X Player

    I also like this song, do not blame me for being Brazilian,
    I do not blame you for being American, so that's the way it is,
    everyone likes music, it does not matter if the American likes his country's songs or a Brazilian likes American songs,
    we all like music, so this is it, Bye !!

    Ps: just do not say goodbye because it's not the end of the world

    Awesome song, caught it on Music Choice, wish I could find a version with captions or lyrics for my Deaf community, but I see you have been enlightened enough to go that route with other songs, I'm confident I'll find more songs I like or remember, thank you.
