I was born in a dump
Mama 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 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 the 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 of Tobacco Road

But it's home, the only life I've ever known
Only you know how I loathe Tobacco Road

But it's home, the only life I've ever known
Only you know how I loathe
Tobacco Road
