[Verse]
Am                               
I like digging holes and hiding things inside them
When I'll grow old I hope I won't forget to find them
Dm                           F           G              Am
'Cause I've got memories and travel like gypsies in the night
Am
I built a home and wait for someone to tear it down
Then pack it up in boxes, head for the next town running
Dm                           F           G              Am 
'Cause I've got memories and travel like gypsies in the night

[Pre-chorus]
      Dm *                              
And a thousand times I've seen this road,
  F *      G *
A thousand times

[Chorus]
Am
I've got no roots, but my home was never on the ground

I've got no roots, but my home was never on the ground
            Dm           F
I've got no roots uuuh uuuh uh uh
G           Am                  
I've got no roots uuuh uuuh uh uh
Am
I've got no roots, but my home was never on the ground

I've got no roots, but my home was never on the ground
            Dm           F
I've got no roots uuuh uuuh uh uh
G           Am
I've got no roots uuuh uuuh uh uh

[Verse]
Am 
I like standing still, boy that's just a wishful plan

Ask me where I come from, I'll say a different land
Dm                        F           G              Am
But I've got memories and travel like gypsies in the night

Am
I can't get the numbers, and play the guessing name

It's just the place that changes, the rest is still the same
Dm                        F           G              Am 
But I've got memories and travel like gypsies in the night

[Pre-chorus]
      Dm *
And a thousand times I've seen this road,
  F *      G *
A thousand times

[Chorus]
Am
I've got no roots, but my home was never on the ground

I've got no roots, but my home was never on the ground
            Dm           F
I've got no roots uuuh uuuh uh uh
G           Am                  
I've got no roots uuuh uuuh uh uh
Am
I've got no roots, but my home was never on the ground

I've got no roots, but my home was never on the ground
            Dm           F
I've got no roots uuuh uuuh uh uh
G           Am
I've got no roots uuuh uuuh uh uh

[Bridge]
Am *   Am *

When I'll grow old

I won't forget to find them

[Chorus]
Am
I've got no roots, but my home was never on the ground

I've got no roots, but my home was never on the ground

I've got no roots uuuh uuuh uh uh
G           Am                  
I've got no roots uuuh uuuh uh uh
Am
I've got no roots, but my home was never on the ground

I've got no roots, but my home was never on the ground
            Dm           F
I've got no roots uuuh uuuh uh uh
G           Am
I've got no roots uuuh uuuh uh uh
