Ode To The Little Shack Out Back
Recorded by Bobby Bare
Written by Billy Ed Wheeler

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
G D7 G
It will stand forever in my memory

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

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
G D7 G
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
G D7 G
And it gave the same relief to rich and poor

repeat #2

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
G D7 G
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
G D7 G
And a man could get inside without a dime

repeat #2
