This Ole House

This Ole House
(Stuart Hamblen)

INTRO: Ain't a-gonna need this house no longer -
I'm a-gettin' ready to meet the saints.

This Ole House once knew my children
This Ole House once knew my wife
This Ole House was home and comfort
As we fought the storms of life
This Ole House once rang with laughter
This Ole House heard many a-shout
Now she trembles in the darkness
When the lightnin' walks about.

CHORUS - But, I ain't gonna need this house no longer
     Ain't gonna need this house no more
     Ain't got time to fix the shingles
     Ain't got time to fix the floor
     Ain't got time to oil the hinges
     Or to mend no window pane
     Ain't gonna need this house no longer
     I'm a-gettin' ready to meet the saints.

This Ole House Is a-gettin' shaky
This Ole House it's 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.

My ole hound dog lies a-sleepin'
He don't know I'm gonna leave
Else he'd wake up by the fireplace
He'd just sit there an' howl and grieve
But my huntin' days are over
We ain't goin' huntin' any more
Gabriel done brought in my chariot
When the wind blew down the door.
