Liz Anderson — This Ole House lyrics

This ole house once knew my children in this house I was a wife
This ole house was home and comfort as I fought the storms of life
This ole house once rang with laughter this ole house heard many shouts
Now she trembles in the darkness when the lightnin' 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 floors
Ain't got time to oil the hinges nor to mingle the window panes
I ain't gonna need this house no longer I'm a gettin' ready to meet the saints
[ piano ]
This ole house is a gettin' shaky this ole house is a gettin' old
This ole house stands in the rain this ole house stands in the cold
On my knees I'm gettin' chilly but I feel no fear or pain
Cause I see an angel peeking through a broken window pane
Ain't a gonna need this house no longer...
[ guitar ]
This ole house is afraid of thunder this ole house is afraid of storms
This ole house just groans and trembles when the night went flings it's arms
This ole house is a gettin' feeble this ole house is a needin' paint
Just like me it's broken out but I'm gonna get ready to meet the saints
Ain't a gonna need this house no longer...
Ain't a gonna need this house no longer...
