Ode To The Little Brown Shack Lyrics

They passed an ordinance in the town
Said we'd have to tear it down
That little brown shack out back so dear to me
Though the Health Department said
It's day was over and dead
It will live forever in my memory.

Don't let 'em tear that little brown building down
Don't let 'em tear that precious building down
Don't let 'em tear that little brown building down
Fro there's not another like it in the country or the town.

It was not too long ago
That I went tripping through the snow
Out to that house behind my old hound dog
Where I'd sit me down to rest
Like a snowbird on her nest
And read the Sears and Roebuck catalog.

Don't let 'em tear that little brown building down
Don'e let 'em tear that precious building down
Don't let 'em tear that dear old building down
For there's not another like it in the country or the town.

I would hum a happy tune
Peeping through the quarter moon
Just like my pappy's kin had done before
It was in that quiet spot
Daily cares could be forgot
And it gave the same relief to rich and poor.

Don't let 'em tear that little brown building down
Don't let 'em tear that precious building down
Dont lt 'em tear that dear old building down
For there's not another like it in the country or the town.

It was no a castle fair
But I could dream my future thre
And build castles to the yellow jackets drone
I could orbit around the sun
Fight with General Washington
Or be a king upon a golden throne.

Don't let'em tear that little brown building down
Don't let 'em tear that precious building down
Don't let 'em tear that dear old building down
For there's not another like it in the country or the town.

It wasn't fancy built at all
It had newspapers on the wall
It was air conditioned in the wintertime
It was just a humble hut
And it's door was never shut
And a man could get inside without a dime.

Don't let 'em tear that little brown building down
Don't let 'em tear that precious building down
Don't let 'em tear that dear old building down
For there is not another like it in the country or the town.

They passed an ordinance in the town
Said we'd have to tear it down
That little brown shack out back so dear to me
