Tobacco Road
Common Market Lyrics

I guess it has been a minute
And the south paw aint felt right without the pen in it
Sent for incentive and sittin’ submissive
But nothin’ bringin’ Jimmy back, you know that – prayin’ a waste of wishes
I made a decision – carry on, honor lives in the deed
Though the muse moves in decreased speed
Due to the wait, my dude lose patience with me?
Favor the Blue, you knew what I was trainin’ to be
I came for the takin’ of something they aint seen back in Henry
The proximity to Knox’s Fort’s not given any but
Cause to envy – Lord when have we fought the enemy
With more that afforded, we’re stormin’ the port of entry
In memory of the James Clan, my symphony of the
Flames fan to conquer, when the song come on – pay the band
Send a percentage back, Oldham owed, factor in estate tax
Or waive it if it goes to pave Tobacco Road

Some memories I kept
Others left, others I must have let go to protect
Hold a check for the row I set – ready? No, not yet
Well lemme know and I’ll return to collect
They never found me ‘cause Valerie’s boy had a different rhythm to play to
And he gon’ use his tools to break through
Mindful of the nights in that state, who they say life is what you make it
When really life is what makes you

Payin’ homage, with a big nod to Aubrey
The schools failed me, thank God the farm taught me
The value of a calloused hand, how to work and plow this land
How even a modest crop will make your pop the proudest man
Harvest of a thousand fans, sans a gram of seeds broadcast
Through loud speakers, in the weeds I was born last
Profound effect on my volume, plus the readiness to fill it
In the field you should hear what they call ‘em
Regardless I should have spent another year on the bottom tier
Instead of trynna dodge what it was I thought got ‘em here
89 the number, 84 lumber – another summer
Fightin’ for cash to mash on the likening
Of cycles I’ve seen – those not keen on college
Lost direction or went to be correctional officers
No opportunity was offered us, I had my sights on
Being gone ‘fore they cut the lights on, Ryan’s song
Right or wrong, tie it tighter, I’m tired of buying into
Guidance gone awry, my father fought it with firearms and
Died in the trauma the violence spawned a child of drama
No wonder he’s prone to wander, knowin’ his home is haunted
Prayin’ that over yonder they still know
How much I love ‘em I just had to go, had it with the status quo
They’re askin’ me if I’ll be back when I’m old
In fact, no – these are my last tracks along Tobacco Road

Damn that's a hot track. It's a shame that artists like Common Market, Windchill, Felony, Atmosphere and many others don't get radio play. The world needs the message and this more money more money more money shit is taking the world / music nowhere.

Ooh, I'll have to look up Windchill and Felony. Love Common Market. I heard they were working on another album called Pegasus Parade by the way.

well your a channel with 300k subs why not promote some of this music on it, good beats with good games only makes the best of combinations.


It's the water man the government puts chemicals in the water than make you do whatever they want you to.

This song hits me in the heart, a profound feeling that feels like the first time you got hurt. All the times I've lost, now I'm just reminiscing of memories of me jamming to this song in the winter. When i shut my eyes for the last time I hope a melody plays, and I hope it's just as blissful.


I realize that I'm not nearly qualified to say this but in my eyes this is easily one of the greatest songs ever made. Period.

I seriously would love to here music like this on the radio artist like Common Market, Atmosphere, Living Legends, Murs, Grouch & Eligh, Eyedea & Abilities, Blue Scholars, Language Arts Crew. Oh damn I would love that radio station! Haha
