Lou Rawls - Tobacco Road lyrics

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

I 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

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

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

Bring dynamite and a crane
Blow itup, start all over again
Build a town, be proud to show
Give the name Tobacco Road

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