      This Old House---(Original Version)
           by Stuart Hamblen
                  (1954)
C
This ole house once knew his children
          F
This ole house once knew his wife
          G7
This ole house was home and comfort
         F
As they fought the storms of life



This old house once rang with laughter
          F
This old house heard many shouts
          C 
Now she trembles in the darkness
          G7               C
When the lightnin' walks about


              F
Ain't a-gonna need this house no longer
               C
Ain't a-gonna need this house no more
           G7 
Ain't got time to fix the shingles
           C
Ain't got time to fix the floor
           F
Ain't got time to oil the hinges
        C
Nor to mend the windowpane
               G7
Ain't a-gonna need this house no longer
                                 C
I'm a-gettin' ready to meet the saints



This ole house is a-gettin' shaky
         F
This ole house is a-gettin' old
          G7
This ole house lets in the rain
          C
This ole house lets in the cold

On his knees I'm gettin' chilly
        F
But he feel no fear nor pain
          C
'Cause I see an angel peekin'
           G7           C
Through a broken windowpane



This ole house is afraid of thunder
          F
This ole house is afraid of storms
          G7
This ole house just groans and trembles
          C
When the night wind flings its arms

This ole house is gettin' feeble
          F
This old house is needin' paint
           C  
Just like me it's tuckered out
                    G7               C
But I'm a-gettin' ready to meet the saints


Now my ole house dog lies a-sleepin'
          F
He don't know I'm gonna leave
           G7
Else he'd wake up by the fireplace
          C
And he'd sit there and howl and grieve

But my huntin' days are over
            F
Ain't gonna hunt the coon no more
        C
Gabriel done brought in my chariot
          G7                  C
When the wind blew down the door
