Puttin' New Roots Down (Shenandoah)

Oh, I've been called a rambler, I?ve been called a rogue A lonesome highway traveler, always on the road I've felt the sting of the winter wind, turned my collar to the cold And I've waded in warm waters on the Gulf of Mexico I've always liked my freedom of being on my own I'd love 'em and I'd leave 'em but then you came along You've changed my way of thinking, you turned me right around Now my mind's on you, baby and I?m puttin' new roots down I'm puttin' new roots down, deep down in the ground I wanna raise some kids instead of raising cane When you tell me that you love me, I like the way it sounds You're the reason why I'm puttin' new roots down Oh, some say I'm a drifter, say I'm a rolling stone But now that I'm called daddy, I've lost the urge to roam I'd have to say it makes my day when we lay down at night When you wrap both arms around me, you keep me satisfied I'm puttin' new roots down, deep down in the ground I wanna raise some kids instead of raising cane When you tell me that you love me, I like the way it sounds You're the reason why I'm puttin' new roots down
