THIS OLE HOUSE (Stuart Hamblen) Recorded by : Billie Anthony; Black Lace; Bill Black; Wilf Carter; The Cathedral Quartet; The Cathedrals; Rosemary Clooney; Alma Cogan; Wilma Lee Cooper; Jimmie Dean; Brownie Ford; Golden Hammond; Stuart Hamblen; Jessica King; Enoch Light; Hovie Lister; Bette Middler; Mrs. Miller; Moms & Dads; Carl Perkins; Brian Setzer Orch.; The Statler Brothers; Shakin' Stevens; Johnny Tillotson; George Younce. 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 window-pane 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 Oh his knees are-a gettin' chilly But he feel no fear or pain 'Cause he sees an angel peekin' Through a broken window-pane (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 a-gettin' feeble This old house is a-needin' paint Just like him it's tuckered out But he's a-gettin' ready to meet the saints (*) (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 window-pane Ain't a-gonna need this house no longer He's a-gettin' ready to meet the saints (*) (*) Alma Cogan's version changes "meet the saints" to "meet his fate" and Billie Anthony's to "fade away".
