Richie Havens – Goin’ Back To My Roots

Goin’ Back To My Roots
Zippin’ up my boots, goin’ back to my roots
To the place of my birth, back down to earth
Not talkin’ ’bout the roots in the land
I’m talkin’ ’bout the roots in the man
Zippin’ up my boots, goin’ back to my roots
I’m homeward bound, got my head turned around
Goin’ back to find myself
I can’t live with nobody else
Who’s living in the world and not be seen
Goin’ back, goin’ back right there an’ be me
Not talkin’ for riches I’ve had all the time
Finding out happiness is just a state of mind
Just a state of mind
Zippin’ up my boots, goin’ back to my roots
To the place of my birth, back down to earth, yes
Not talkin’ ’bout the roots in the land
I’m talkin’ ’bout the roots in the man, yes
Zippin’ up my boots, getting back to the roots
I’m homeward bound, got my head turned around
