MIRANDA LAMBERT - Roots And Wings

This single was released on May 26, 2015.
I loved the way that the guitars were recorded in this song. The mixing felt great, the guitars covered the whole spectrum and felt really full and bright. The vocals were exciting, but her accent kinda put me off this time. The lyrics felt nice, the bass was not overwhelming, it had the right amount of dynamics and kept the song interesting.

[INTRO] C F C F
[VERSE]
                 C
I got red dirt stains
       F          C
On my boots and jeans
   F        C
Calloused fingers
          F       C
From my guitar strings
               Am
Wild like the wind
                 F
In the tall pine trees
        C
I got roots
G           C
And I got wings


    F       C
I raise my glass
        F         C
On a Saturday night
     F        C
I thank the Lord above
         F      C
On my Sunday drive
               Am
For Daddy's hands
             F
And Mama's dreams
              C
He gave me roots
G            C
She gave me wings

[CHORUS]
         Am
He said run on love
Am
And run on life
       F
And plant some seeds 
F
Until you're tired
 C                              G
Don't take anything at all for granted

             Am
She said raise your hands 
Am
And raise your babies
F
Be yourself
F
And never change it
C                            G
Be everything you ever wanna be

[INSTRUMENTAL] C F Am G x2

[CHORUS]
         Am
He said run on love
Am
And run on life
       F
And plant some seeds 
F
Until you're tired
 C                              G
Don't take anything at all for granted

             Am
She said raise your hands 
Am
And raise your babies
F
Be yourself
F
And never change it
C                            G
Be everything you ever wanna be

[VERSE]
         C
I saddle up
    F        C
When I get down
F            C
Sing every night
        F        C
In a different town
               Am                F
And I've got a man who wears my ring
            C
And I got roots
G           C
And I got wings
Am           C
Yeah I got roots
G       C
I got wings
