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 time 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 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. 
To the place of my birth 
Back down to earth.
