Ode To The Little Shack Out Back

Höfundur lags: Billy Ed Wheeler Flytjandi: Bobby Bare Sent inn af: Anonymous

[G]They passed an ordinance in the town

They said we'd have to tear it down
That little old shack out back so dear to [D7]me   
Though the [G]health department said its day was [C]over and dead
It will [G]stand forever [D7]in my memo[G]ry  


Don't let them tear that little brown building down
Don't let them [D7]tear that precious [G]building down
Don't let them tear that dear old [C]building [Am]down   
There's [G]not another [C]like it in the [D7]country or the [G]town


It was not so long ago that I went tripping through the snow
Out to that house behind my old hound [D7]dog   
Where I [G]would sit me down to rest like a [C]snowbird on his nest
And I'd [G]read that Sears and [D7]Roebuck [G]catalog


Oh I would hum a happy tune peeping through the quarter moon
As my daddy's kin had done so much [D7]before
It was [G]in that quiet spot daily [C]cares could be forgot
And it [G]gave the same [D7]relief to rich and [G]poor


Don't let them tear that little brown building down
Don't let them [D7]tear that precious [G]building down
Don't let them tear that dear old [C]building [Am]down   
There's [G]not another [C]like it in the [D7]country or the [G]town


Now it was not a castle fair but I could dream of future there
Build my castle to the yellow jackets [D7]drone
I could [G]orbit round the sun fight with [C]General Washington
Or [G]be a king [D7]upon a golden [G]throne


It wasn't fancy built at all we had newspapers on the wall
It was air-conditioned in the winter[D7]time   
Oh it was [G]just an humble hut but its [C]door was never shut
And a [G]man could get [D7]inside without a [G]dime


Don't let them tear that little brown building down
Don't let them [D7]tear that precious [G]building down
Don't let them tear that dear old [C]building [Am]down   
There's [G]not another [C]like it in the [D7]country or the [G]town


They passed an ordinance in the town

They said we'd have to tear it down
That little old shack out back so dear to me
Though the health department said its day was over and dead
It will stand forever in my memory

Don't let them tear that little brown building down
Don't let them tear that precious building down
Don't let them tear that dear old building down
There's not another like it in the country or the town

It was not so long ago that I went tripping through the snow

Where I would sit me down to rest like a snowbird on his nest

And it gave the same relief to rich and poor

Don't let them tear that little brown building down
Don't let them tear that precious building down
Don't let them tear that dear old building down

And a man could get inside without a dime

Don't let them tear that little brown building down
Don't let them tear that precious building down
Don't let them tear that dear old building down
There's not another like it in the country or the town
