GOING BACK TO MY ROOTS (ORIGINAL VERSION) Lyrics by Richie Havens
Zippin' up my boots, goin' back to my roots
To the place of my birth, back down to earth
Not talkin' 'bout the roots in the land
I'm talkin' 'bout the roots in the man
Zippin' up my boots, goin' back to my roots
I'm homeward bound, got my head turned around
Goin' back to find myself
I can't live with nobody else
Who's living in the world and not be seen
Goin' back, goin' back right there an' be me

Not talkin' for riches I've had all the time
Finding out happiness is just a state of mind
Just a state of mind

Zippin' up my boots, goin' back to my roots
To the place of my birth, back down to earth, yes
Not talkin' 'bout the roots in the land
I'm talkin' 'bout the roots in the man, yes
Zippin' up my boots, getting back to the roots
I'm homeward bound, got my head turned around, oh oh
Going home, I'm coming home
Going home, going home, right to be loved
Not for my riches that I've got the time
Finding out happiness is just a state of mind
Just a state of mind, just a state of mind
Just a state of mind, yeah

Zippin' up my boots, goin' back to my roots
To the place of my birth, get on down to the earth

It's not black, it's not white
It's not red, it's not yellow
It's not black, it's not white
It's not red, it's not yellow
It's not black, it's not white
It's not red, it's not yellow
It's down to earth, it's down to earth
It's down to earth, it's down to earth

It's not red, it's not white
It's not yellow , it's not black
It's not red, it's not white
It's not yellow , it's not black
