Tobacco Road
I was born in a trunk
Mama died and my daddy got drunk
Left me here to die alone
In the middle of tobacco road

Growin' up in a filthy shack
All I had was hangin' on my back
Only you know how I loathe
This place called Tobacco Road

But it's home
The only life I've ever known
And I can't help but loathe
Tobacco

Gonna leave, and get a job
With the help and the grace from above
Save some money, get rich and old
Bring it back to Tobacco Road

Bring that dynamite and a crane
Blow it up, start all over again
Build a town, be proud to show
Gives the name Tobacco Road

But it's home
The only life I've ever known
But I love you
'Cause you're home
