Lyrics

If you go ridin' round out in the Rockies
You could wind up drivin' by Dierks Bentley's house
Everybody knows that Colorado's beautiful
But it's a long damn way from the South
Now Dierks please don't attack, see I ain't tryin to talk no smack
My man, cause I've been livin out here too
And it don't matter where you hang your hat, buddy it's a fact
That you can't ever lose them Tennessee Roots

See me myself I grew up in the country
Not too far from Memphis, Tennessee
If it was good enough for Mr. Presley
Then it was surely good enough for me
Since then I've been a lots of different places
Loved a lot of different ladies too
Well you can take the boy out of the country
But you can't take away these Tennessee roots

Tennessee roots, we wear boots
Know how to shoot, we talk a little twang
Tennessee fam, we say yes ma'am
Don't give a damn 'bout what you got to say
We ain't afraid to work, or bow our heads and pray
Even if we end up livin' somewhere far away
We stay true to our Tennessee roots
Tennessee roots

I know you may be thinking that you ain't the one I'm singing to
'Cause you never hauled a bale of hay
Or maybe you just wasn't blessed to be one of the lucky few
Who grew up in the Volunteer State
But if you love the music from Nashville
And keep some Jack Daniels on the shelf
Well brothers and sisters, I'ma letting you know
You got some Tennessee roots yourself

Tennessee roots, we wear boots
Know how to shoot, we talk a little twang
Tennessee fam, we say yes ma'am
Don't give a damn 'bout what you got to say
We ain't afraid to work, we git it when we play
Even if we end up livin' somewhere far away
We stay true to our Tennessee roots

And sing Tennessee River and the mountain man
Never made sense before, but I think I finally understand
Be my Dixie chicken, I'll be your Tennessee lamb
And if you're feelin what I'm feelin, put your hands up to the ceiling
Can I get an Amen (AMEN)
Hallelujah for Tennessee roots
Aw Tennessee roots

Tennessee roots, we wear boots
Know how to shoot, we talk a little twang
Tennessee fam, we say yes ma'am
Don't give a damn and we like it that way
We ain't afraid to work, or bow our heads and pray
Even if we end up livin' somewhere far away
We stay true to our Tennessee roots
Tennessee roots
Oh Tennessee roots
