Alice Merton - No Roots


[Intro] (Bass Line)
Bm  Em  G  A  Bm

[Verse]
Bm
I like digging holes and hiding things inside them

When I'll grow old I hope I won't forget to find them
Em                           G           A              Bm         G  A
'Cause I've got memories and travel like gypsies in the night

Bm
I built a home and wait for someone to tear it down
Bm
Then pack it up in boxes, head for the next town running
Em                           G            A             Bm         G  A
'Cause I've got memories and travel like gypsies in the night

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

[Chorus]
            Bm
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
             Em        G
I've got no ro-ooo-ooo-oots
     A      Bm
I've got no ro-ooo-ooo-oots
            Bm
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
              Em       G
I've got no ro-ooo-ooo-oots
     A      Bm
I've got no ro-ooo-ooo-oots

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

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

Bm
I can't get the numbers, and play the guessing name
Bm
It's just the place that changes, the rest is still the same
Em                        G           A              Bm
But I've got memories and travel like gypsies in the night

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

[Chorus]
            Bm
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
             Em        G
I've got no ro-ooo-ooo-oots
     A      Bm
I've got no ro-ooo-ooo-oots
            Bm
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
              Em       G
I've got no ro-ooo-ooo-oots
     A      Bm
I've got no ro-ooo-ooo-oots

[Bridge]
Bm
I like digging holes and hiding things inside them

When I grow old I hope I won't forget to find them

Bm
I like digging holes and hiding things inside them

When I grow old I hope I won't forget to find them

I'VE GOT NO ROOTS!
   Em     G  A   Bm
NO ROOTS!

[Chorus]
            Bm
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
             Em        G
I've got no ro-ooo-ooo-oots
     A      Bm
I've got no ro-ooo-ooo-oots
            Bm
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
              Em       G
I've got no ro-ooo-ooo-oots
     A      Bm
I've got no ro-ooo-ooo-oots

NO!
