Yeah they say I'm a lonely creature
Even with kids and a wife
That I walk to the tune of a loner
Yeah I've done it all my life

They accuse me of having an accent
Like it's something bad to have
When I sing people listen
And sometimes it makes me mad

[Chorus:]
Yeah I'm heading out on the ocean
South of the Lafourche
I'm going out to Canada
Tracking my roots
I'm tracking my roots

I fell in love once in the graveyard
All her kisses stole my soul
I've loved her since the beginning yeah
And I will til I'm dead and cold

Sometimes I want to get real drunk
Why I know I'm not suppose to
Yeah I curse that damn addiction
That took all those years from me and you

[Chorus:]
Yeah I'm heading out on the ocean
South of the Lafourche
I'm going out to Canada
Tracking my roots
I'm tracking my roots
