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
'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
Then pack it up in boxes, head for the next town running
Em                           G           A              Bm 
'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 roots uuuh uuuh uh uh
A           Bm                  
I've got no roots uuuh uuuh uh uh
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 roots uuuh uuuh uh uh
A           Bm
I've got no roots uuuh uuuh uh uh

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

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 roots uuuh uuuh uh uh
A           Bm                  
I've got no roots uuuh uuuh uh uh
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 roots uuuh uuuh uh uh
A           Bm
I've got no roots uuuh uuuh uh uh

    This song was hard at first but I kept trying and eventually (now) it is super easy for me.
