​Roots of Country

This song is by Jeffrey Steele.

Family together front porch swing
Daddy get his guitar and we all sing
Grandma rockin' the baby to sleep
Momma keepin' time at the sewing machine

That's the way it was handed down to me
And that's what I still believe
Music planted the seed inside of me
Songs about God and family
And makin' the most of simple things
These are my roots, the roots of country

They sing in the factories, churches and the fields
Words from the hear, stories so real
A common people with a common bond
Workin' together and singin' along

That's the way it was handed down to me
And that's what I still believe
Music planted the seed inside of me
Singin' the songs that we all know
Gathering around the radio
Yeah, these are my roots, the roots of country

Kentucky bluegrass, western swing (The seed inside of me)
The singin' cowboys and honky tonk queens
The good old days they may be gone
But the tradition still lives on, yeah

Music planted the seed inside of me
(Songs about God and family)
Songs about God and family
(Makin' the most of simple things)
Makin' the most of simple things
(These are my roots)
And I'm proud of my roots
(The roots of country)
Oh, yeah

These are my roots
The roots of country

These are my roots
Ah, yeah
