[Intro]
Eb Fm Eb Bb Ab Bb Eb 

[Verse 1]
  Eb                                 Ab             Eb
I left the four lane highway, took a blacktop seven miles
                                  F            Bb
Down by the old country school, I went to as a child
Eb                                    Ab                Eb
Two miles down a gravel road, I could see the proud old home
                                  Bb              Eb
A tribute to a way of life that's almost come and gone

[Chorus]
    Ab                      Eb
The roots of my raisin' run deep
                    F               Bb
I come back for the strength that I need
    Ab                        Eb         Bb
And hope comes, no matter how far down I sink
    Ab          Bb          Eb
The roots of my raisin' run deep

[Verse 2] 
  Eb                       Ab                             Eb
I pulled into the driveway, tho Lord, it sure was good to be there
    Eb               
And through the open door I could see that
    F                          Bb
Dad was asleep in his favorite chair
       Eb
In his hand was a picture of Mom
      Ab                            Ab
And I remembered how close they were
   Ab       
So I just turned away
                           Bb                     Eb
I didn't want to wake him, spoil his dreams of her

[Verse 3]
  Eb                                     Ab               Eb
A Christian Mom who had the strength for life the way she did
                                       F                 Bb
Then to pull that apron off and do the Charleston for us kids
Eb                             Ab               Eb
Dad, a quiet man, who's gentle voice was seldom heard
                                    Bb            Eb
Who could borrow money at the bank, simply on his word

[Chorus]
    Ab                      Eb
The roots of my raisin' run deep
                    F               Bb
I come back for the strength that I need
    Ab                        Eb         Bb
And hope comes, no matter how far down I sink
    Ab          Bb          Eb
The roots of my raisin' run deep
    Ab          Bb          Eb
The roots of my raisin' run deep
