ROSEMARY CLOONEY


This Ole House Lyrics

This ole house once knew his children
this ole house once knew his wife
this ole 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
Chorus:
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 windowpane
ain't a-gonna need this house no longer
he's a-gettin' ready to meet the 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
on his knees i'm gettin' chilly
but he feel no fear nor pain
'cause he see an angel peekin'
through a broken windowpane
chorus
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 him it's tuckered out
but he's a-gettin' ready to meet the saints
chorus
This ole house 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
chorus
