    She drank moonshine, chews tobacco, raised thirteen children all by herself

    -LYRICS-

    I was born in a dump
    Mother died and my daddy got drunk
    He left me here to die or grow
    In the middle of Tobacco Road

    I grew up in a rusty shack
    And all I had own was hangin' on my back
    The lord knows how I loathe
    This place called Tobacco Road

    But its home, it's really my home
    The only life I've ever known
    But the lord, the lord knows I loathe
    Tobacco Road

    I'm gonna leave and get a job
    With the help and the grace of God
    I save my money, get rich I know
    Bring it back to Tobacco Road

    I gonna get me some dynamite
    Gonna bring me a crane
    Got to Blow you up, got to tear you down
    And start all over again
    Well I'll Build a town, I'll be proud to show
    Keep the name Tobacco Road

    Cause it's home
    The only life I've ever known
    I despise you 'cause you filthy
    But I love ya, 'cause it's home
    Tobacco Road
    Tobacco Road
    You dirty and filthy
    Tobacco road
    Gonna get me some dynamite
    Gonna bring me a crane
    Got to Blow you up, got to tear you down
    And start all over again
    Tobacco road
    Tobacco road
    I despise you, I despise you 'cause you filthy
    But I love ya, 'cause it's home

  • Rare Earth - Tobacco Road 93 Best Powerful Version!

    7:14

    This version comes from a hard to find 1993 release Different World Personally I consider it superior to the original slow paced, soft version or Eric Burdon's babbling;)

    Lyrics

    I was born in a dump My mama died, my daddy got drunk
    He left me here to die or grow In the middle of Tobacco Road
    I grew up in a rusty shack All I owned was a'hangin' on my back
    The Lord knows how I love This place called Tobacco Road
    But it's home, it's really my home The only life I've ever known
    For the Lord, the Lord knows I love Tobacco Road

    I'm gonna leave and get a job With the help and the grace of God
    I'll save my money, get rich I know Bring it back to Tobacco Road
    I gonna get me some dynamite Gonna bring me a crane
    Got to blow you up, got to tear you down And start all over again
    But I'll build a town, I'll be proud to show Keep the name of Tobacco Road
    'Cause it's home The only life I've ever known I despise because you're filthy
    But I love you, 'cause you're my home

  • Rare Earth - Papa was a rolling stone

    7:05

    It was the third of September.
    That day I'll always remember, yes I will.
    'Cause that was the day that my daddy died.
    I never got a chance to see him.
    Never heard nothing but bad things about him.
    Mama, I'm depending on you, tell me the truth.

    And Mama just hung her head and said,
    Son, Papa was a rolling stone.
    Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
    (And when he died) All he left us was ALONE.
    Papa was a rolling stone, my son.
    Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
    (And when he died) All he left us was ALONE.

    Well, well.

    Hey Mama, is it true what they say,
    that Papa never worked a day in his life?
    And Mama, bad talk going around town
    saying that Papa had three outside children and another wife.
    And that ain't right.
    HEARD SOME talk about Papa doing some store front preaching.
    TalkIN about saving souls and all the time leeching.
    Dealing in debt and stealing in the name of the Lord.

    Mama just hung her head and said,
    Papa was a rolling stone, my son.
    Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
    (And when he died) All he left us was ALONE.
    Hey, Papa was a rolling stone.
    Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
    (And when he died) All he left us was ALONE.

    Uh!

    Hey Mama, I heard Papa call himself a jack of all trade.
    Tell me is that what sent Papa to an early grave?
    Folk say Papa would beg, borrow, steal to pay his bill.
    Hey Mama, folk say that Papa was never much on thinking.
    Spent most of his time chasing women and drinking.
    Mama, I'm depending on you to tell me the truth. Mama looked up with a tear in her eye and said,
    Son, Papa was a rolling stone. (Well, well, well, well)
    Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
    (And when he died) All he left us was ALONE.
    Papa was a rolling stone.
    Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
    (And when he died) All he left us was ALONE.

    I said, Papa was a rolling stone. Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
    (And when he died) All he left us was ALONE.

    Your love is fadin', I feel it fade
    Ah, your love is fadin', I feel it fade
    Ah, your love is fadin', woman, I feel it fade

    Ah, woman, woman, your touch, your touch has gone cold
    As if someone else controls your very soul
    I fooled myself long as I can
    Can feel the presence of another man

    It's there when you speak my name, it's just not the same
    Ooh babe, I'm losin' you
    It's in the air, it's there everywhere
    Baby, baby, babe, I'm losin' you

    When I look into your eyes, a reflection of a face, I see
    I'm hurt, down-hearted and worried, girl, 'cause that face doesn't belong to me

    It's all over your face, someone's taken my place
    Ooh baby, I'm losin' you
    You try hard to hide the emptiness you feel inside
    Ooh babe, I'm losin' you

    Fadin, fadin' away from me
    Fadin' away from me
    Fadin'
    Your love is fadin'
    I can feel it fadin', fadin', fadin' away from me
    Girl, I know it's true, there's nothin' I can do, I know I'm losin' you
    I can feel it in my bones, any day you'll be gone, I'm losin' you
    I know it's true, there's someone new, I'm losin' you
    'Cause your love is fadin', fadin' away from me
    Fadin', fadin' away from me
    It's fadin', fadin' fadin' away from me

    I can't bear the thought of losin' you
    Woman, can't you see what I'm goin' through?
    I'm losin' my mind, I'm losin' my mind and it's all because of you
    I can't bear the thought of losin' you
    I'm losin' my mind, I'm losin' my mind and it's all because of you
    I can't stand the thought of losin' you

    Get Ready is the second studio album by rock band Rare Earth, released in 1969. The album version of Get Ready was often played in full at college gatherings. It was a percursor to the 12 inch dance singles. And then, of course, the edited version would eventually become a pop hit.

    Motown Record Corporation approached Rare Earth in the latter part of 1968 to sign a recording contract.

    At first the group was reluctant to sign because of knowing of other white groups and artists before them that had not had any success because Motown was geared for promotion and distrubution in the black market only.

    The personnel in the band on this album (Back To Earth) include Gil Bridges (Alto sax, flute and vocals ), Jerry LaCroix (Lead Vocal, Tenor Sax, Flute), Paul Warren (Guitar, Vocal), Ray Monette (Guitar), Eddie Guzman (Congas, Percussion), Barry Eugene Frost (Traps, Percussion), Gabriel Katona (Keyboards, Vocal) & Reggie McBride (Bass, Vocal).

    Track 2 from their excellent second album “Get Ready” released in 1969 copyright Rare Earth Records. The band was formed in Detroit in 1960 and after releasing an unsuccessful debut album on a different label, they were signed to a new division of Motown dedicated to producing white rock acts. At the band’s suggestion, Motown named the new label “Rare Earth Records.” Pete Rivera’s voice was one of the most powerful in rock and he was an exceptional drummer, backed by a band of equally outstanding musicians. They recorded an epic version of “The Temptations” hit “Get Ready” written by Smokey Robinson and included it as Side B of the album. A drastically shortened version of the song was released as a single the next year. Their biggest hit, it outperformed the original released four years prior and reached No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100. The album went Gold and was awarded Platinum status in 2000. Recorded from the original vinyl. Written by John D. Loudermilk and produced by Rare Earth. RIP John Persh & John D. Loudermilk. Featuring:

    I was born in a dump, my Mama died, my Daddy got drunk
    He left me here to die or grow in the middle of Tobacco Road
    Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    I grew up in a rusty shack and all I owned was hangin' on my back
    The Lord knows how I loathe this place called Tobacco Road

    But it's home, it’s really my home, the only life I've ever known
    But the Lord, the Lord knows I loathe Tobacco Road

    I'm gonna leave and get a job with the help and the grace of God
    I'll save my money, get rich, I know, bring it back to Tobacco Road
    Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    Ah, gonna get me some dynamite, gonna bring me a crane
    Got to blow you up, got to tear you down and start all over again
    Well, I’ll build a town I’ll be proud to show, keep the name of Tobacco Road

    Cause it's home, the only life I've ever known
    I despise you ‘cause you're filthy but I love you 'cause you're my home

    Tobacco Road, Tobacco Road, you're dirty and filthy
    Tobacco road, gonna get me some dynamite, gonna bring me a crane
    Got to blow you up, got to tear you down, start all over again
    Tobacco road, Tobacco road
    I despise, I despise you ‘cause you're filthy
    But I love you because you're my home
    Tobacco road, road, talkin' 'bout a dirty, low-down, filthy place
    Tobacco Road, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
    You're so dirty and filthy
