This Ole House

This song is by Ernie Haase & Signature Sound.

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

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

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

Now my ole hound dog lies asleep
And he don't know I'm gonna leave
Or else he'd wake up by the fireplace
And sit there and howl and grieve
But my huntin days are over
Ain't a gonna hunt for coon no more
Can't no duck crawl in the chair
When the wind blows down the door

Chorus twice
