    Lyrics

    This old house once knew my children
    This old house once knew my wife
    This old house was home and shelter as we fought the storms of life
    This old house once rang with laughter
    This old house heard many shouts
    Now she trembles in the darkness when the lightnin' walks about

    Ain't gonna need this house no longer
    Ain't 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 gonna need this house no longer
    I'm getting ready to meet the saints

    This old house is getting shaky
    This old house is getting old
    This old house lets in the rain and
    This old house lets in the cold
    On my knees I'm getting chilly
    But I feel no fear or pain
    'Cause I see an angel peeking through
    A broken window pane

    Ain't gonna need this house no longer
    Ain't 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 gonna need this house no longer
    I'm getting ready to meet the saints

    Now my old hound dog lies asleeping
    He don't know I'm gonna leave
    Else he'd wake up by the fireplace
    And he'd sit there, howl and grieve
    But my hunting days are over
    I aint gonna hunt the 'coon no more
    Gabriel done brought in chariot
    When the wind blew down the door

    Ain't gonna need this house no longer
    Ain't 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 gonna need this house no longer
    I'm getting ready to meet the saints
