Ode To The Little Shack Out Back
[Verse 1]

G
They passed an ordinance in the town 

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


[Chorus]


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


[Verse 2]

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


[Chorus]


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


[Verse 3]

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


[Chorus]

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


[Verse 4]

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


[Chorus]

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


[Verse 4]

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


[Chorus]

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