1.  This ole house once knew my children
 G
]This ole house once knew my wife
 A7
This ole house was home and comfort
 DGD
as we fought the storms of life
 D
This ole house once rang with laughter
 G
This ole house heard many shouts
 A7
Now she trembles in the darkness
 D
When the lightnin' walks about
 G
CH:  Ain't a-gonna need this house no longer
 D
Ain't a-gonna need this house no more
 A7
Ain't got time to fix the shingles
 DD7
Ain't got time to fix the floor
 G
Ain't got time to oil the hinges
 D
Nor to mend the window pane
 A7
Ain't a-gonna need this house no longer
 D
I'm a-gettin' ready to meet the saints
2. This ole house is a-gettin' shaky
This ole house is a-gettin' old
This ole house lets in the rain
This ole house lets in the cold
On my knees I'm gettin' chilly
But I feel no fear nor pain
'Cause I see an angel peekin'
Through a broken window pane
3. This ole house is afraid of thunder
This ole house is afraid of storms
This ole house just groans and trembles
When the night wind flings its arms
This old house is gettin' feeble
This ole house is needin' paint
Just like me its tuckered out
But I'm a-gettin' ready to meet the saints
4. This ole house dog lies a-sleepin'
He don't know I'm gonna leave
Else he'd wake up by the fireplace
And he'd sit there and howl and grieve
But my huntin' days are over
Ain't gonna hunt the coon no more
Gabriel done brought in my chariot
When the wind blew down the door
