Tobacco Road Lyrics - The Animals



Review The Song (3)


I was born in a dump
my mother died
my daddy got drunk
they Left me here
to die or grow
in the middle of
Tobacco Road
Tobacco Road
Tobacco Road

i Grew up in a rusty shack
all I ever owned babe
was hangin' on my back
Lord above know
how much I loathe
this mean ol' place called
Tobacco Road
Tobacco Road
Tobacco Road
Tobacco Road
Tobacco Road

But it's home yes
the only life I've ever known
and the lord knows
how much I loathe
Tobacco Road (Road, Road, Road)

Tobacco Road, yeah (Road, Road, Road)
Tobacco Road, yeah (Road, Road, Road)
I'm talkin' 'bout road (Road, Road, Road)
I'm talkin' 'bout that road (Road, Road, Road)
Tobacco Road, yeah (Road, Road, Road)
Everybody's got one (Road, Road, Road)
Everybody's got some (Road, Road, Road)
Everybody's got feel one (Road, Road, Road)
Everybody remember (Road, Road, Road)
Tobacco Road, yeah (Road, Road, Road)
Road, yeah (Road, Road, Road)
Road, yeah (Road, Road, Road)
Road, yeah (Road, Road, Road)

But it's home mmm
the only life this boy has ever known
and the lord knows
how much I loathe
Tobacco Road, yeah (Road, Road, Road)
Tobacco Road, yeah (Road, Road, Road)
Tobacco Road, yeah (Road, Road, Road)

I'm gonna leave (Road, Road, Road)
and get myself a job (Road, Road, Road)
with the help (Road, Road, Road)
and the grace from above (Road, Road, Road)
I'll get me some dynamite (Road, Road, Road)
and I'll get me a crane (Road, Road, Road)
And I'll blow it all up, tear it down (Road, Road, Road)
Start all over again (Road, Road, Road)
And I'll build me a town (Road, Road, Road)
I'll be proud to show (Road, Road, Road)
And I'll keep the name (Road, Road, Road)
And I'll keep the name (Road, Road, Road)
And I'll keep the name Tobacco Road, yeah (Road, Road, Road)
Tobacco Road, yeah, yeah (Road, Road, Road)
Tobacco Road
Tobacco Road

you're dirty and you're filthy
but I love you
cause you're my home, baby
You are my home
the only life I've ever known
You are my home
You are my home
Yes, you're my home
Ya hear me, you're my home
you're my home

yes it's home, yes
the only life I've ever known
and the lord knows
how much I loathe
Tobacco Road, yeah (Road, Road, Road)
Tobacco Road, yeah (Road, Road, Road)
Tobacco Road, yeah (Road, Road, Road)

do it again, ya feel a thing (Road, Road, Road)
do it again, ya feel a thing (Road, Road, Road)

the nashville teens | Reviewer: david hughes | 3/31/11

i dont ever recall the animals performing this song,but i do rememember the nashville teens singing it,ive had many of eric burdon and the animals records in my time,even had one album where the song when i was young was on it,extreamly hard to get an original recording of this,but im 99% sure that it was the nashvile teens who sung it first,and sure the animals never performed it,unless they covered it at a concert.



yes -this is...well a little | Reviewer: Jack Mac | 8/8/07

The Animals did this song in a great blues version. I don't know what album is it, but I have a live version of this music in mp3



not animals - war! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/28/04

the animals never did this song. this war was recorded by Eric Burdon on the album "Eric Burdon declares war". the band of Eric Burden at this time was "war".
