“Old House Blues” by Lou Shields

Oh, well he done it now, sold off all that land
Yes, they took him down, those work strong hands
And there she, stands alone now
In the shadow of their plan

Oh just a workin man, no fortune it’s true
Yes they took her down, but this is what I’m gonna do
With them, hand hewn beams down,
Gonna build her right again

There she stands again, on a bluff over me
Together with old friends, build her right I say
And there she stands tall now
Cabin home reclaimed

Built that old front porch, from and old barn you see
And the butternut floor from, an old school out east
We gave her a new life now
Cabin home reclaimed
