      About "This Ole House"

      Lyrics for Rosemary Clooney - "This Ole House"

      This ole house once knew his children
      This ole house once knew his wife
      This ole house was home and comfort
      As they fought the storms of life
      This old house once rang with laughter
      This old house heard many shouts
      Now he trembles in the darkness
      When the lightnin' walks about

      [Chorus]
      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 windowpane
      Ain't a-gonna need this house no longer
      He's a-gettin' 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 ole house lets in the cold
      On his knees I'm gettin' chilly
      But he feel no fear nor pain
      'Cause he see an angel peekin'
      Through a broken windowpane

      [Chorus]

      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 gettin' feeble
      This old house is needin' paint
      Just like him it's tuckered out
      But he's a-gettin' ready to meet the saints

      [Chorus]

      This ole house dog lies a-sleepin'
      He don't know I'm gonna leave
      Else he'd wake up by the fireplace
      And he'd sit there and howl and grieve
      But my huntin' days are over
      Ain't gonna hunt the coon no more
      Gabriel done brought in my chariot
      When the wind blew down the door

      [Chorus]
