This Ole House  Rosemary Clooney

T[C]his ole house once knew my children, this ole ho[F]use once knew my wife;
This ole h[G]ouse was home and comfort as we [C]fought the storms of life.
This old h[C]ouse once rang with laughter, this old [F]house heard many shouts;
Now she t[G]rembles in the darkness when the li[C]ghtnin' walks about.
Ain't a-gonna ne[F]ed this house no longer,
Ain't a-gonna ne[C]ed this house no more;
Ain't got t[G]ime to fix the shingles, a[C]in't got [C/B]time to [Am7]fix the floor,
Am7/G F Fdim(III) Fdim C C/B Am7
Ain't got time to oil the hinges nor to mend the win-dow-pane;
[Gdim]Ain't gonna [G]need this house no lo[G7]nger--
I'm a-gettin' r[G]eady to [G/A]meet [G/B]the sa[C]ints.
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 knees are a-gettin' shaky, but I feel no fear nor pain,
'Cause I see an angel peekin' through a broken windowpane.
Repeat Refrain:
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 gettin' feeble, this old house is needin' paint;
Just like me it's tuckered out, but I'm a-gettin' ready to meet the saints.
Repeat Refrain:
My ol' 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 Refrain:
