SONG LYRICS

Tear Down the Fences – Eb

V1
Do you know your neighbor, do you the name
Says in the bible, that we’re all the same
We got different bodies, and we got different eyes
But our Souls are whole, like to dance and sing
To the Rhythm and Rymns
V2
Do you love your neighbors, every woman child and man
Are you and your neighbors, ready to take a stand
Let’s come together and strike up the band
And we’ll dance and sing, let our voice ring
Throughout this land (and we’ll sing)
Chorus:
Tear down the fences, let’s dig up the yard
Let’s plant a garden, it can’t be that hard
With a fork, a rake and a shovel, that’s all we need
We’re good to go, let’s get er done, who’s got some seeds
V3
If we work together you know, we can get it done
They say it’s work for the soul and it’s a lot of fun
And we’ll watch the gardens grow, in the rain and the sun
And in the Fall, we’ll harvest it all, lots of food for everyone
Chorus
Tear down the fences, let’s dig up the yard
Let’s plant a garden, it can’t be that hard
With a fork, a rake and a shovel, that’s all we need
We’re good to go, let’s get er done,
Let’s start planting the seed
V4
This world’s in trouble and that means you and me
It’s as plain as the nose on your face
But we can’t seem to see!
We’re in denial, Mother Nature she don’t like
If we don’t change our ways, one of these days
You can kiss this world goodbye
Chorus:
Tear down the fences, let’s dig up the yard
Let’s plant a garden, it can’t be that hard
With a fork, a rake and a shovel, that’s all we need
We’re good to go, let’s get er done
Don’t forget to weed.
Tag:
We’re good to go, let’s get er done
Don’t forget to weed. (Don’t forget the weed)

DESCRIPTION
Song is about coming together as a community through gardening and collaboration, tear down the barriers. Song was inspired when living in a neighborhood where all these fenced gardens existed and I envisioned tearing down the fences and everyone working on a community garden.
