We Don’t Grow Tobacco by Old Crow Medicine Show

Transcribed by DWdrummer67.

Note: The A to D and D to Dm transisions in the chorus aren't required.
I added those as a way to follow the vocal cues. They don't play them,
but I like the way it sounds. You can just play an A in the first part
and a D in the second. ENJOY!!

Tuning: Standard (capo 1st fret)

Intro: A, E, A

         A
Hardest work that ever I done, bent beneath that burning sun
                E               A
Hauling that tobacco ‘round to cure
          A
I would chop that wicked weed, till our hands and fingers bleed
                E           A
Working like a mule, maybe more
              D                           A
We've been farming on this land… since eighteen hundred ten
         F#m                   B           E
Through flood, drought and pestilence and war
       A
Now I sure am sad to say, that I’ve lived to see this day
                     E                    A
And we don't grow tobacco ‘round here no more

Chorus:
          A  D            A
We don't grow…, we don't grow
                                         E
Oh, it's still the only work we'll ever know
          D Dm            A
We don't grow…, we don't grow
                 E                    A
We don't grow tobacco ‘round here no more

         A
Grandpa told me this I know, change is comin’, won't be slow
                        E            A
Knocking just like a thunder at the door
            A
Plowed up fields are all around, empty barns just fallin’ down
                   E                     A
Well, Iron weeds comin’ up through the floor

           D                             A
Once we growed it by the pound, now the kids all moved to town
    F#m                    B         E
And all that's left are elderly and poor
       A
Now I sure am sad to say, that I’ve lived to see this day
                     E                    A
And we don't grow tobacco ‘round here no more

Chorus:
          A  D            A
We don't grow…, we don't grow
                                          E
Oh, it's still the only work we'll ever know
                D Dm             A
Well, we don't grow…., we don't grow
                 E                    A
We don't grow tobacco ‘round here no more

Break:
D, A, F#m, B, E

                  A
Whoooo!!!, yes I sure am sad to say, this way of life has gone away
                          E                    A
Now that we don't grow tobacco ‘round here no more
D     A                E                    AE-A…
Well, we don't grow tobacco ‘round here no more

I've submitted a correction to this post. So... until that's fixed... please disregard the notes at that begining. The D#m isn't a D#m, it's just a Dm. The capo on the 1st fret screwed me up until I played it again, and went "what the heck was I playing". Sorry for the confusion. In addition... and to avoid confusion... the chords are writen out as finger positions rather than the actual chord. This song is actually in A# (due to the capo).
