They're Tearin' The Labor Camps Down 

       E           A               E  
I came back to California cause my home was here
                  B                   E
To look up my old sweetheart just for fun
                     A            E  
Mom and Dad had both passed on in two short years
                   B            E
While my patriotic chores beiní done

I saw changes all around me and some were good
But I hardly recognized my side of town
They tore down the swingin' casing from the cottowood
And that tree was all that marked familar ground.

E                       A           E
Oh, they're tearin' the labor camps down
      G#			 C#m 
And I feel a little sentimental shame
          A				      E
Where's a working man gonna live at in this town
                        B           E
Oh, they're tearin' the labor camps down.

The Hilltop family market had been moved somewhere
And the name was changed to fit the newer homes
The things that I remember were no longer there
And the cabin that my daddy built was gone.
