The Nashville Teens – Tobacco Road lyrics

I was born in a funk
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

(Instrumental Break)

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
Tobacco Road

But it's home, the only life I’ve ever known
I despise ya, because you're filthy
But I love ya, cause you're home
