    My Roots
    Recorded live on Mountain Stage at Tamarack
    Nov 19 2006

    Let me tell you about my family
    And let me sing about its tree
    How I've climbed up on the branches
    How some have broken under me
    But as my bottom hits the ground
    I'll tell you what I always find

    My roots have covered my backside
    My roots have covered my backside

    You know my mother had a mom
    And my dad he had a dad
    And if you listen to their stories
    You’ll hear the good
    You'll hear the sad
    From the Seneca Rock
    To the beginning of all time

    My roots have covered my backside
    My roots have covered my backside

    So I’ve got to dig deep
    To find out what is true
    I need to know my yesterdays
    So I can figure out what's new
    Before the Blackwater River
    Cut it's first jagged line

    My roots have covered my backside
    My roots have covered my backside

    So, it's not a dirty story
    But you’ve gotta dig it deep
    It started with a single seed
    That one that started you and me
    It's sewn in every foreign land
    And grows through every grain sand

    My roots have covered my
    Roots have covered my
    roots have covered my backside
