Do do do do do do dooo
Do do do do do do dooo

You built you a house of wood, yeah
A wood house, yeah, where love once stood
Though the time you spent together was very short
Then like a giant hand came gale winds
From the north, yeah

And just blew your house away
And left your skies a gray
As you thought of yesterday, yeah
Gone, gone, house of wood, yeah Lord

So you built you a house of stone
You know it tore ya and scarred your bones
You can't help be overwhelmed with joy
'Cause once again, once again you saw life
Through the eyes of a baby boy

Until the one night rain began
Turned your little stone house to sand
There you stood, there you stood all alone, yeah
Gone, gone, house of stone, ohh, yeah

Sometimes I think I know you, how you feel
So they built you a box of wood
And planted it deep where love once stood
Though the wind and rain still blowin' hard
You won't mind 'cause you feel no pain at all, yeah

Though you see the sun no more
You have rest in peace for sure
As I kinda close the door, yeah
To your good, good, yeah, good
(Good box of wood)
Box a wood

Now, now a house of wood
Grandpa, grandpa
(Good, good box of wood)
Ain't no need to worry, yeah
I hear the chariots
Swingin' over, yeah

Here they come
(Good, good box of wood)
(Good box of wood)
To carry you home
