This Ole House Lyrics

Well, 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
Ain't got time to oil the hinges nor to mingle window panes
Ain't I gonna need this house no longer I'm gettin' ready to meet the saints

Well this ole house once I knew my children
This house once I 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 shouts
But now it trembles in the darkness
When the lightnin' walks about

Well, 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
Ain't got time to oil the hinges nor to mingle window panes
Ain't I gonna need this house no longer I'm gettin' ready to meet the saints

Now my old hound dog lies a sleepin'
He don't know I'm gonna leave
Else he'd wake up by the fireplace
And he'd hound more and grieve

But my huntin' days are over
Ain't gonna hunt the coon no more
Gabriel just brought in my chariot
When the wind blew down the door

Well, 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
Ain't got time to oil the hinges nor to mingle window panes
Ain't I gonna need this house no longer I'm gettin' ready to meet the saints
