Lyrics

I was born in a trunk. Mama died and my daddy got drunk. Left me here to die or grow. In the middle of Tobacco Road. Grew up in rusty 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. Only you know how I loathe Tobacco Road.

Gonna leave, get a job With the help and grace from above. Save some money, get rich and old, Bring it back to Tobacco Road. Bring dynamite and a crane, Blow it up, start all over again. Build a town, be proud to show. Give the name Tobacco Road. But it's home, the only life I've ever known. I despise ya 'cause you're filthy, But I loves ya 'cause you're home.
