Tobacco Road Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
was born in a bunk
Mother died and my daddy got drunk
Left me here to die or grow
In the middle of Tobacco Road
Verse 2
Grew up in a dusty shack
And all I had was a'hangin' on my back
Only you know how I loathe
This place called Tobacco Road
Verse 3
But it's home
The only life I've ever known
Only you know how I loathe
Tobacco Road
Verse 4
I'm gonna leave and get a job
With the help and the grace from above
Save some money, get rich I know
Bring it back to Tobacco Road
Verse 5
Bring Dynamite and a crane
Blow you up, start all over again
Build a town be proud to show
Give the name Tobacco Road
Verse 6
Cause it's home
The only life I've ever known
Oh I despise and disapprove you
Verse 7
