Stonemasons                     	Are becoming things of the past 
Em                                             G               D 
The modern age                 		Is finally taking us over at last 
Em                                              G                   D 
Don't you wonder why?     		They're tearing all the old houses down 
Em                                              G                     D 
Can't they see?            		That they're the best places around

    Don't tear it down, 		there's life in it yet	Don't tear it down 
 
History,					Is written deep in the walls 
But the march of progress		Wants to pour concrete over us all  
Craftsmanship,				The stone was cut by hand 
Bulldozers					Are taking over the land 
 
Don't tear it down, there's life in it yet 
Don't tear it down, there's time for us yet, 
Don't tear it down

An expressway,				Is planning to come through our lounge 
Eviction notes, in business coats		Never renovate, just tear it down 
A nation's heritage,			They want to bring down without a sound 
Another new town			On top of the real town: 
 
Don't tear it down, there's life in it yet 
Don't tear it down, there's time for us yet 
Don't tear it down, there's life in it yet 
Don't tear it down
