this ole house  Various Artists















This Ole [C]House once knew my children
This Ole [F]House once knew by wife
This Ole [G7]House was home and comfort
As we [C]fought the storms of life
This Ole [C]House once rang with laughter
This Ole [F]House heard many shouts
Now she [G7]trembles in the darkness
when the lightning walks a[C]bout
Chorus:
Ain't a-gonna [F]need this house no longer
Ain't a-gonna [C]need this house no more
Ain't got [G7]time to fix the shingles
Ain't got [C]time to fix the floor
Ain't got [F]time to oil the hinges
Nor to [C]mend no window panes
Ain't a-gonna [G7]need this house no longer
I'm a-gettin' ready to meet the [C]Saints
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
Oh my kneew are are a-gettin' chilly
But I feel no fear nor pain
'Cause I see an angel peekin'
Through a broken window pane
Repeat chorus
Now 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 Ole House is a-gettin' feeble
This Ole House is a-needin' paint
Just like me it's tuckered out
But I'm a-gettin' ready to meet the Saints
Repeat chorus
Now my old hound 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
Repeat chorus
