This ole house once knew my children
This ole house once knew my wife
This old house was home and comfort
As we fought the storms of life
This ole house once rang with laughter
This old house heard many shouts
Now she trembles in the darkness
When the night wind 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 window pane
Ain't a gonna need this house no longer
I'm getting ready to meet the saints

Verse 2
This ole house is a gettin shaky
This ole house is a gettin old
This ole house lets in the rain
This old house lets in the cold
On my knees I'm gettin chilly
But I feel no fear of pain
Cause I see an angel peekin
Through a broken window pane

Chorus again

Verse 3

Now my ole hound dog lies asleep
And he dont know i'm gonna leave
Or else he'd wake up by the fireplace
And sit there and howl & grieve
But my huntin days are over
Aint a gonna hunt for coon no more
Cant no duck crawl in the chair
When the wind blows down the door

Chorus twice
