Old Crow Medicine Show We Don't Grow Tobacco


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 1810
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!

Chorus:
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

Chorus:
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!
