Lyrics

I was born in a dump
My mama died, my daddy got drunk
He left me here to die or grow
In the middle of Tobacco Road...
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I grew up in a rusty shack
And all I owned was hangin' on my back
The Lord knows how I love
This place called, Tobacco Road

But it's home, it's really my home
The only life I've ever known
But the Lord, the Lord knows I loathe
Tobacco Road

I'm gonna leave and get a job
With the help and the grace of God
I'll save my money
Get rich I know
Bring it back to Tobacco Road

Oh... yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Aaah... gonna get me some dynamite
Gonna bring me a crane
Got to blow you up
Got to tear you down
And start all over again
Well I'll build the town
I'll be proud to show
Keep the name of Tobacco Road

' Cause it's home
The only life I've ever known
I despise you 'cause you're filthy
But I love you 'cause you're my home
Tobacco road, tobacco road
You're dirty and filthy
Tobacco road
Gonna get me some dynamite
Gonna bring me a crane
Got to blow you up
Got to tear down
Start all over again

Tobacco Road
Tobacco Road
I despise, I despise you 'cause you're filthy
But I love you because you're my home

Tobacco Road, road
Talkin' about a dirty, low down, filthy place
Tobacco Road
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
You're so. dirty and filthy
