The Animals had a hit with the song: “TOBACCO ROAD”. I loved it. It was a favorite song of mine, and I “loved” The Animals! (SKY PILOT was a song I also loved.)

The picture is a rare field of tobacco… in days gone by, tobacco was a major cash crop. Not so today…it’s kinda like finding an old memory in the bottom of an old trunk when I run across a large field of tobacco.

TOBACCO ROAD
BY THE ANIMALS
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

i Grew up in a rusty shack

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

But it’s home yes
the only life I’ve ever known
and the lord knows
