This Ole House

Johnny Cash

Tom: C
 C                                               F 
This ole house once knew my children, this ole house once knew my wife; 
 
          G                               C 
This ole house was home and comfort as we fought the storms of life. 
 
          C                                      F 
This old house once rang with laughter, this old house heard many shouts; 
 
         G                                  C 
Now she trembles in the darkness 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; G C C/B Am7 Ain't got time to fix the shingles, ain't got time to fix the floor, Am7/G F Fdim(III) Fdim C C/B Am7 Ain't got time to oil the hinges nor to mend the win-dow-pane; Gdim G G7 Ain't gonna need this house no longer-- G G/A G/B C I'm 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, my knees are a-gettin' shaky, but I feel no fear nor pain, 'Cause I see an angel peekin' through a broken windowpane. Repeat Refrain: 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 me it's tuckered out, but I'm a-gettin' ready to meet the saints. Repeat Refrain: My ol' hound 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. Repeat Refrain:
