This Ole' House
(34:an)

			T&M: Stuart Hamblen

This ole house once knew his children,
This ole house once knew his whife.
This ole house was home and comfort,
as they fought the storms of life.
This ole house once rang with laughter,
this ole house heard many shouts,
Now he 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 time to fix the shingles,
	ain't time to fix the floors
	Ain't got time to oil the hinges
	nor to mend the window panes.
	Ain't gonna need this house no longer,
	he's a-gettin' ready to meet his fate.

This ole house is a-gettin' shaky,
this ole house is a-gettin' old.
This ole house lets in the rain,
this ole house lets in the cold.
Oh, his knees are a-gettin' chilly,
but he feels no fear of pain.
'Cause he seeks a new tomorrow,
through a golden window-pane.

	Ain't gonna need this house. .....

This ole house is afraid of thunder,
this ole house is afraid of storms.
This ole house just groans and trembles
when the night wind flings its arms.
This ole house is a-gettin' feeble
this ole house is a-needin' paint.
Just like him it's tuckered out,
He's a-gettin' ready to meet his fate.
	
	Ain't gonna need this house.......
