"Tobacco Road" as written by and John D. Loudermilk....
I was born in a bunk.
Mummy died and my daddy got drunk.
Left me here to die or grow.
In the middle of Tobacco Road.

Grew up in a rusty shack,
All I had was hanging on my back.
Only you know how I loath
This place called Tobacco Road.

But it's home.
The only life I've ever known.
Only you know how I love you,
Tobacco Road.

I'm gonna leave and get a job,
With the help and grace from above.
I'll make some money get rich I know,
And bring it back to Tobacco Road.

'Cause it's home
The only life I've ever known
Only you know how I love you
Tobacco Road.

Break

I'm gonna leave and get a job,
With the help and grace from above.
I'll make some money get rich I know,
And bring it back to Tobacco Road.

Bring dynamite and a crane
Blow it up start all over again
Build a 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 home.
