Oh, I've been called a rambler, Ive 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 Im 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
