Lyrics

Down to the Roots

Written By: Doug Yeomans

Verse 1
I ain't never been to Texas but I love that Western Swing,
I've never been to Memphis but I love the Blues they sing.
Oklahoma, California's got those steel guitars, good old country music in them all night bars.
Verse 2
Down the Mississippi delta all the way to New Orleans, that Creole, Canjun music eatin' rice and red beans.
Jazz down in the Quarter, rockin' Rhythm and Blues, there's so much goin' on it makes it hard to chose.
Chorus
Take me Down to the Roots,
I just love that Rock and Roll,
Take me Down to the Roots,
play me some funky old Soul,
That drummer plays a rhythm, I just kick up my boots, play me some good old country music take me Down to the Roots.
Verse 3
Play some sweet mandolin, let the banjo ring, that old country gospel
I just love to hear them sing.
Bluegrass music and the songs of Bill Monroe,
Mother Mabel Carter's got that pure country soul.
Repeat chorus
Verse 4:
They play them old timey songs up in the hills of Tennessee.
There's somethin' 'bout that music that really gets to me.
Just hard workin' people Monday morn' 'til Friday night
They really break it loose on a Saturday night.
Repeat chorus

Sweet Emma Rose

Written By: Doug Yeomans

Verse 1
My little baby's got big blue eyes,
she's got long blonde hair and a killer smile.
Real long legs from her hips to her toes, she's my honey she's my baby she's my Sweet Emma Rose.
Verse 2
Now Miss Emma likes to stay home all day and she don't like to work but man she loves to play.
She likes to put on her makeup, dress in bright, fancy clothes, and go dancin' with her daddy she's my Sweet Emma Rose.
Bridge
She's my little princess,
Sittin' on her throne.
She's got me wrapped around her finger like a bright shiney bow, and I can hardly believe she's only five years old.
Verse 3
Now I love my Emma and it's safe to say, I'm gonna love that girl until my dyin' day. She tickles my fancy and I tickle her toes, she's my honey, she's my baby she's my Sweet Emma Rose.

Verse 4 (Repeat Verse 3)
Tag
She's the sweetest thing that I've ever known,
And I just can't live without my little Sweet Emma Rose
