Ode To The Little Brown Shack Out Bac

	                 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                                   
Though the Health Department said  
                      C 
It's day was over and dead 
         G               D7     G 
It will stand forever in my memory 
 
 
 
Chorus 
                G          
Don't let 'em tear, that little brown building down 
               D7                         G                
Don't let 'em tear, that precious building down 
                                       C     Am         
Don't let 'em tear that dear old building down  
         G               C                 D7       G  
There's not another like it in the country or the town 
 
 
 
                     G        
It was not so long ago  
 
That I went tripping through the snow 
                                      D7                  
Out to that house behind my old hound dog 
        G                          
Where I would sit me down to rest  
         C 
Like a snowbird on his nest 
       G                     D7          G 
And I'd read that Sears and Roebuck catalog  
 
 
 
                         G                   
Oh I would hum a happy tune  
 
Peepin' 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 
              G 
Don't let 'em tear, that little brown building down 
                D7                         G 
Don't let 'em tear, that precious building down 
                                    C     Am 
Don't let 'em tear that dear old building down  
         G               C                 D7       G 
There's not another like it in the country or the town 
 
 
 
                         G                                   
Now it was not a castle fair  
 
But I could dream a future there 
                                         D7 
Build my castles to the yellow jacket's drone 
         G                                    C 
I could orbit around the sun, fight with Gen,ral Washington 
         G        D7           G 
Or be a king upon a golden throne  
 
 
 
                          G 
It  wasn't fancy built at all;  
 
We had newspapers on the wall 
                                     D7 
It was air-conditioned in the winter time 
           G                                  C 
Oh it was just a humble hut but it's door was never shut 
           G                    D7     G 
And  a man could get inside without a dime  
 
 
 
Chorus 
                G        
Don't let 'em tear, that little brown building down 
               D7                        G 
Don't let 'em tear, that precious building down 
                                   C       Am 
Don't let 'em tear that dear old building down  
         G               C               D7        G 
There's not another like it in the country or the town
