Our Barn 04:41
The old barn has stood here since 1824 Paint cracked and peeling on its massive sliding doors Still stands big and strong but it blocks the neighbour's view We're gonna knock it down before the winter's through We're tearing down the barnyard for a house all new It won't have broken windows or a leaky roof Our daddy's daddy and his daddy built the barn real well Their spirits are right here, not in heaven, not in hell And the horses will run free, grasses grow tall Barn walls will crumble, where wild weeds sprawl Yeah the horses will run free, grasses grow tall Folks won't remember it was ever here at all We planted a big chestnut tree in the middle of the yard We planted it for daddy, cause daddy worked so hard He'd've known to grow it, he knew how to run a farm Yet ours looks like it's dying cause we're tearing down the barn And the horses will run free, grasses grow tall Barn walls will crumble, where wild weeds sprawl Yeah the horses will run free, grasses grow tall Folks won't remember it was ever here at all It was standing strong - for decades and years It was standing through - depression and fears It was standing as - generations grew past It was standing then - and now the barnyard won't last And the horses will run free, grasses grow tall Barn walls will crumble, where wild weeds sprawl Yeah the horses will run free, grasses grow tall Folks won't remember it was ever here at all The old barn has stood here since 1824 Now the barn won't be around much longer anymore
