My Old Wooden Shack

Click Here for guitar tabs.

People I know stopped to say
Hello and I hope that someday
I'll get 'lectric lights and plumbing put in
But I'm too old to be changin' my ways.

We never needed anything more
Than this shack with it's weatherbeaten door
Though we may want the things that catalogues can bring
Empty wishes leave a wanting man sore

Chorus
Oh, the light from that old oil lamp
Lights a way down that well beaten path
And as memories come back from eighty years or more
Goin' to die in my old wooden shack

Got a horse when I was thirty years old
And the horse lived for thirty years more
When that lovely thing died, I hid and I cried
Where 'tis buried now grows a rose

With the wood we' hauled off those hills
And traded for cash at the mills
We bought all our needs and the animal feeds
And there's wood left standing there still

Chorus

I plowed this here garden by force
An iron will and a mighty strong horse
Though it took a long time to replace rock with lime
For the hardships, I'm none the worse

You see a man belongs where he lives
He's a part of the soil and the trees
And when its all done and his life end has come
Leave a man to rest in his peace

Chorus

And as memories come back from eighty years or more
Goin' to die in my old wooden shack
