"That Tumble-Down Shack" (karaoke)

"That Tumble-Down Shack" (sheet music)


I have worked like a jack for that tumble-down shack
That you see standing up on the hill;
I have worked like a horse for the very same boss
That you see every day at the mill.
When I walk down the track to the tumble-down shack,
I have visions of prosperity,
Of rebuilding that shack when the boss pays me back
All the money he swindled from me.
When I walk down the track to the tumble-down shack,
I have visions of prosperity,
Of rebuilding that shack when the boss pays me back
All the money he swindled from me.

When you're all organized, you will then be surprised
At the changes we'll have at the mill.
All the strikes will be won when we go out as one;
Our demands will be granted at will.
Then, you'll walk down the track and tear down that old shack
That is standing 'way up on the hill.
When the boss gets the sack, we can build a new shack,
And we won't be swindled at the mill.
Then, you'll walk down the track and tear down that old shack
That is standing 'way up on the hill.
When the boss gets the sack, we can build a new shack,
And we won't be swindled at the mill.
