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
