Tobacco road lyrics John D. Loudermilk

I was born in a bunk
Mama died and my daddy got drunk
Left me here to die alone
In the middle of Tobacco Road
Grew up in 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 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 that dynamite and a crane
Blow it up, start all over again
Build a town, be proud to show
Gives the name Tobacco Road
But it’s home, the only life I ever known
I despise you ’cause yer filthy
But I love you ’cause yer home
Songwriters: John D. Loudermilk
