Hardest work that ever I done,
Been beneath that burnin' sun
Was haulin' that tobacco 'round to cure.
Oh we'd chop that wicked weed
Till our hands and fingers bleed
I'm working like a mule, maybe more

We've been farmin' on this land since 1810
Through flood and drought and pestilence and war
Now I am sad to say
That I've 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 we'll ever know
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, won't be slow
Knocking just like a thunder at the door
Better fields are all around
Empty bars just fallin' down
... coming up through the floor"

Once we growed it by the pound,
Now the kids all moved to town
And all that's left are...
Now I sure am sad to say
That I've lived 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!

Yes I sure am sad 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!
