All these work ever I done, 
Been beneath that burning sun 
So that tobacco around to cure. 
I would chop that wicked weed 
Till our hands and feet will bleed 
I'm working like I'm you, baby boy 

We've been farming on this land since eighteen ten
 Through drought and pest and, and war 
Now I'm sure, I'm set to say 
 Better I lived to see this day 
And we don't grow tobacco around here no more! 

We don't grow, we don't grow 
Oh, it's still the only work will ever know 
Well, we don't grow, we don't grow 
We don't grow tobacco around here no more! 

 Grandpa told me this, I know 
 Change is coming, it won't be slow 
 Knocking just like a thunder at the door 
 Better feel the roar around 
 Empty bonds just fall undone 
 Coming up through the floor 

Once we by the pond, 
Now the kids have moved to town 
And all it's left are and corn 
Not sure what I'm said to say 
That I will live to see this day 
And we don't grow tobacco around here no more 

We don't grow, we don't grow 
It's still the only work will ever know 
Well, we don't grow, we don't grow 
We don't grow tobacco around here no more! 

Uh, sure to say 
This way of life has gone away 
Now that we don't grow tobacco around here no more 
No we don't grow tobacco around here no more!
