Here's the whole thing, great song!

Stompin Tom Connors

While away down in southern Ontario,
I never had a nickel or a
dime to show,
A fellow beeped up in an automobile,
He said, "Ya
wanna work in the tobacco fields of...

Tillsonburg (Tillsonburg), Tillsonburg (Tillsonburg),

My back still aches when I hear that word.

He said, "I'll only give ya seven bucks a day,
And if you're any good
you'll get a raise in pay,
Your bed's already on the bunkhouse floor,

If it gets a little chilly you can close the door.


I was feelin' in the morning anything but fine,
The farmer said, "I'm
gonna teach you how to 'prime'."
He said, "You gotta don a pair of
oilskin pants,
If you wanna work in the to[D]bacco plants of...


We landed in a field that was long and wide,
With one old horse and
five more guys,
I asked him where to find the cigarette trees,

When he said, "Bend over," I was ready to leave...


He said to pick just the bottom leaves,
And don't start crawlin' on
your hands and knees,
Prime your row 'cause you'll get no pay,

For standin' there pickin' at your nose all day 'round...


With a broken back bendin' over there,
I was wet right through to the
And it was stuck to my skin like glue,
>From the
nicotine tar and the morning dew of...


Now, the nearest river was two miles from,
The place they were
waitin' for the boat to come,
When I heard some talk about makin' the
I was down the highway and over the hill from


Now there's one thing you can always bet,
If I never smoke another
I might get taken in a lot of deals,
But I won't go
work in the tobacco fields of...

Chorus (repeat last line to fade)
