This Ole House Lyrics

This ole house once knew my children
This ole house once knew my life
This ole house was home and comfort
As we lived through storm and strife
This ole house once rang with laughter
This ole house heard many shouts
Now she trembles in the darkness
When the lightning walks about

Ain't a-gonna need this house no longer
Ain't a-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
Nor to mend the window panes
Ain't a-gonna need this house no longer
I'm a-gettin' ready to meet the saints

This ole house is gettin' shaky
This ole house is gettin' old
This ole house lets in the rain
This ole house lets in the cold
On my knees I'm gettin' shaky
But I feel no fear or pain
'Cause I see an angel peekin'
Through a broken window pane

I ain't a-gonna need this house no longer
Ain't a-gonna need this house no more
Ain't got time to fix the shingles
Ain't got time to fix the floor
I ain't got time to oil the hinges
Nor to mend the window panes
Ain't a-gonna need this house no longer
I'm a-gettin' ready to meet the saints

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

Ain't a-gonna need this house no longer
Ain't a-gonna need this house no more
Ain't got time to fix the shingles
Ain't got time to fix the floor
I ain't got time to oil the hinges
Nor to mend the window panes
Ain't gonna need this house no longer
I'm a-gettin' ready to meet the saints
I'm gettin' ready to meet the saints
