"Tobacco Road" as written by and John D. Loudermilk....
I was born in a dump,
Mama died and my daddy drunk,
Left me here to die or grow,
Middle of Tobacco Road.

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

But it’s home,
The only life I’ve ever know,
I despise you cause you’re filthy,
But I love you cause you’re home.

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

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

Cause it’s home,
The only life I’ve ever know,
I despise you cause you’re filthy,
But I love you cause you’re home.
