This Old House Lyrics

This old house once knew his children
This old house once knew his wife
This old house was home and comfort
As they fought the storms of life
This old house once rang with laughter
This old house heard many shouts
Now he trembles in the darkness
When the lightnin' walks about
Ain't they gonna need this house no longer
Ain't they 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 windowpane
Ain't gonna need this house no longer
He's a gettin' ready to meet the saints
This old house is a gettin' shaky
This old house is a gettin' old
This old house lets in the rain
This old house lets in the cold
Oh, his knees are a gettin' chilly
But he feels no fear or pain
'Cause he sees an angel peekin'
Through a broken windowpane
Ain't they gonna need this house no longer
Ain't they 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 windowpane
Ain't gonna need this house no longer
He's a gettin' ready to meet the saints
This old house is afraid of thunder
This old house is afraid of storms
This old house just groans and trembles
When the night wind flings its arms
This old house is gettin' feeble
This old house is needin' paint
Just like him it's tuckered out
But he's a gettin' ready to meet the saints
Ain't they gonna need this house no longer
Ain't they 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 windowpane
Ain't gonna need this house no longer
He's a gettin' ready to meet the saints
Ready to meet the saints
