Lyrics

He put a hammer on a nail
Drove it deep with every swing
Made the angles strong and true
Building a family dream

This home was built with rooms to spare
Window seats and stairs to climb
Sunny kitchen, front porch swing
A house to stand the test of time

Down to the bare boards, Down to the bones
Exposing every 2 x 4, Till the framework stands alone
Finally see what you’re made of, Kneeling on the floor
Take it down, down, down, To the bare boards.

Empty house in disrepair
Passed on to the family.
Every wall pulled down
Reveals a genealogy.

Down to the bare boards, Down to the bones
Exposing every 2 x 4, Till the framework stands alone
Finally see what you’re made of, Kneeling on the floor
Take it down, down, down, To the bare boards.

Behind a weathered door
Underneath a heart’s desire
Everything seems broken down
We do the work that love requires.
Gotta do the work that love requires.

Down to the bare boards, Down to the bones
Exposing every 2 x 4, Till the framework stands alone
Finally see what you’re made of, Kneeling on the floor
Take it down, down, down,
Take it down, down, down,
Take it down, down, down,
To the bare boards.
bare boards.
