I was born in a trunk
Mother died and my daddy got drunk
Left me here to die or grow
In the middle of Tobacco Road

Grew up in a dusty shack
And all I had was a'hangin' on my back
Lord knows how I loathe
This place called Tobacco Road

But it's home
The only life I've ever known
(Lord) Only you know how I loathe
Tobacco Road

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

Bring Dynamite and a crane
Blow you up, start all over again
Build a town be proud to show
Keep the name Tobacco Road

Cause it's home
The only life I've ever known
Oh I despise you 'cause you're filthy
But I love ya, 'cause you're home
