Parmalee - Roots Lyrics




I'm still running 33's up underneath this truck
Even though rush hour concrete is the only place I'm getting stuck
Ain't on the farm no more but on a stretch of sunny days
I still catch myself looking up at the sky
Praying for a little rain

No I can't outrun these roots
Even if I wanted to
Cause they run too strong, run too deep
Cutting right through the heart of me
No it don't matter where I plant these boots
Can't outrun these roots
I can't outrun these roots

There's still that back-home part of me, that can't help but see things a little different
Like how there ain't no need to put a 'G' on the end of huntin' or fishin'
And I still got granddaddy's bible, his old rifle and his name
But I also got his pour a little more
Coarsin' through my veins

No I can't outrun these roots
Even if I wanted to
Cause they run too strong, run too deep
Cutting right through the heart of me
No it don't matter where I plant these boots
I can't outrun these roots

Thank God I can't
They're tangled up in every part of who I am
Without 'em I know I don't stand a chance
I can't outrun these roots

I can't outrun these roots
Cause they run too strong, run too deep
Cutting right through the heart of me
No it don't matter where I plant these boots
Can't outrun these roots
I can't outrun these roots

  44. Anna Duvallet

    I'm still running 33s up underneath this truck
    Even though rush hour concrete is the only place
    I'm getting stuck
    Ain't on the farm no more but on a stretch of sunny days
    I still catch myself looking up at the sky
    Praying for a little rain
    No I can't outrun these roots
    Even if I wanted to
    'Cause they run too strong, run too deep
    Cutting right through the heart of me
    No it don't matter where I plant these boots
    Can't outrun these roots
    I can't outrun these roots.
    There's still that back-home part of me,
    That can't help but see things a little differently
    Like how there ain't no need
    To put a 'G' on the end of huntin' or fishin'

    Without 'em I know I don't stand a chance
    I can't outrun these roots

  45. Marinara

  50. Kyndal

    I sure do love this song. This song reminds me of my Grandpa John, my Grandpa John served in the Navy in WWII, I never got to meet him, he was killed in a car accident before I was born. I never got to hear him tell me stories of how he was in the war and in the Navy.  I am so very very proud of my Grandpa John. I'm so glad that God let my Grandpa John be my Grandpa, and I'm so glad that God put my Grandpa in my life. My Grandpa John, he is my very, very favorite hero!!!! Whenever I hear and listen to this song, I'll always think of my Grandpa John. I sure do love you so much Grandpa John.

    Jennifer

    I totally get this song it's so true. I am a southern girl with deep family roots. Some people can say my connection my roots are strong for one place. Me I feel that connection with my hometown but those deep southern roots from my family I feel those too, can't say one place, but my farm, ranch, country family is strong but also my mountain family.

    Billy Magnus

    I'm originally from GA, but live in Ohio now! It's just not the same here. My family has been in Ga since 1820 something, and I'm the first to leave! Still wondering why! It just seems like they aren't as family oriented up here! God I miss GA! Sorry for the rant, the song made me do it!

    amber digrino

    Billy Magnus I'm an Ohio country girl stuck in Cleveland I get it all i really want is the sirens to stop and a fresh breeze a crossed a hay field sitting with talking singing and praying

    Danny Still

    Billy Magnus, I can't ever imagine leaving Georgia. I wouldn't live up North for anything. I love traveling, but my roots will forever be in the red Georgia, clay.

  94. Debbie Miller

    Love them 33s

  95. Smiley In Frswd

    Love the song, but your band name is not one that people will remember or one that is easy to say. Saw y'all on Top 20 Country Countdown, you seem humble and appreciative of your fan base. Best of luck to y'all!

  96. Wellington Vieira
