[Intro]
Bm Em (X11)

[Verse]
Bm
Zippin' up my boots
Em
Goin' back to my roots
Bm
To the place of my birth
Em
Back down to earth
Bm
Not talkin' 'bout the roots in the land
Em
I'm talkin' 'bout the roots in the man
Bm                   Em
Zippin' up my boots, goin' back to my roots
G            F#m          Bm           C
I'm homeward bound, got my head turned around

[Chorus]
Bm
Goin' back to find myself
Em
I can't live with nobody else
Bm
Who's living in the world and not be seen
Em
Goin' back, goin' back right there an' be me
Bm
Not searchin' for riches I've had all the time
Em                                       Bm
Finding out happiness is just a state of mind
G      A        Em   A Bb
Just a state of mind

[Verse]
Bm
Zippin' up my boots
Em
Goin' back to my roots
Bm
To the place of my birth
Em
Back down to earth
Bm
Not talkin' 'bout the roots in the land
Em
I'm talkin' 'bout the roots in the man
Bm                   Em
Zippin' up my boots, goin' back to my roots
G            F#m          Bm           C
I'm homeward bound, got my head turned around

[Chorus]
Bm                         G A
Going home, I'm going home
Em
Going home, going home where I do belong
Bm                                         G A
Not found the riches that I've got the time
Em                                       Bm
Finding out happiness was just a state of mind
                Em                    Bm
Just a state of mind, just a state of mind
                Em
Just a state of mind, yeah

[Verse]
Bm
Zippin' up my boots
Em
Goin' back to my roots
Bm
To the place of my birth
Em
Back down to earth

[Outro]
Bm
It's not black, it's not white
Em
It's not red, it's not yellow
Bm
It's not black, it's not white
Em
It's not red, it's not yellow
Bm
It's not black, it's not white
Em
It's not red, it's not yellow
     Bm                  Em
It's down to earth, it's down to earth
     Bm             Em
It's down to earth, it's down to earth
Bm
It's not red, it's not white
Em
It's not yellow, it's not black
Bm
It's not red, it's not white
Em
It's not yellow, ït's not black
