Tommy Cash – Tobacco Road lyrics

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 dirty shack all I owned 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 yeah I can't help but loathe Tobacco Road
Gonna leave and get a job with the help and the grace of God
Save my money get rich I know bring it back to Tobacco Road
Bring dynamite and a crane blow it up and 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
I despite you cause you're filthy but I love you cause you're home
