This Ole House
This ole [C] house once knew my children, this ole [F] house once knew my wife;
This ole [G] house was home and comfort as we [C] fought the storms of life.
This old [C] house once rang with laughter, this old [F] house heard many shouts;
Now she [G] trembles in the darknes when thelightnin' walks a[C]bout.
Ain't a-gonna[F] need this house no longer,
Ain't a-gonna [C] need this house no more;
Ain't got [G] time to fix the shingles, ain't got [C] time to fix the floor,
Ain't got [F] time to oil the hinges nor to [C] mend the window [Am7] pane;
Ain't gonna[G] need this house no longer
I'm a-gettin' ready to meet the [C] saints.
This ole [C] house is a-gettin' shaky, this ole [F] house is a-gettin' old;
This ole [G] house lets in the rain, this ole [C] house lets in the cold.
Oh, my [C] knees are a-gettin' shaky, but I [F] feel no fear nor pain,
'Cause I [G] see an angel peekin' through
A broken window [C] pane.
