tobacco road – status quo lyrics

(john d. loudermilk)
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
