Zippin' up my boots 
Goin' back to my roots, yeah 

To the place of my birth 
Back down to earth 

I've been standing in the rain 
Drenched and soaked with pain 

Tired of short term benefits 
And being exposed to the elements
I'm homeward bound 
Got my head turned around

Zippin' up my boots 
Goin' back to my roots, yeah 

To the place of my birth 
Back down to earth 
Ain't talkin' 'bout no roots in the land 

Talkin' 'bout the roots in the man 
I feel my spirit's gettin' old 
It's time to recharge my soul 
I'm zippin' up my boots 
Goin' back to my roots, yeah 

To the place of my birth 
Back down to earth 

Zippin' up my boots 
Goin' back to my roots
