      About "Ode To The Little Brown Shack Out Back"

      Lyrics for Bobby Bare - "Ode To The Little Brown Shack Out Back"

      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
      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 that Sears and Roebuck catalog
      Oh I would hum a happy tune peeping through the quarter moon
      As my daddy's kin had done so much 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 them tear...

      Now it was not a castle fair but I could dream of future there
      Build my castle to the yellow jackets drone
      I could orbit round the sun fight with General Washington
      Or be a king upon a golden throne
      It wasn't fancy built at all we had newspapers on the wall
      It was air-conditioned in the wintertime
      Oh it was just an humble hut but its door was never shut
      And a man could get inside without a dime
      Don't let them tear...
