Bobby Bare - "Don't Let 'Em Tear That Little Brown Building Down"

The 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,it's day is over and dead
It will stand 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 dear old building down
For there's not another like it in the country or the town

It was not so long ago,that I went trippin' through the snow
Out to that house behind my old hound dog
Where I would sit me down to rest like a snowbird on his nest
And I'd read the Sears and Robot catalogue

Oh I would sing a happy tune,pepin' through the quarter moon
As my daddy's kin had done so much before
It was in that quite spot,daily chores could be forgot
And it gave the same relief to rich or poor

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

Repeat Chorus
