"This Ole House" as written by and Craig/schuyler Bickhardt....
This ole house once knew my children, this house once knew my wife
This ole house was joy and comfort as we fought the storms of life
This ole house once rang with laughter, this ole house heard many a-shout
Now she trembles in the darkness, oh, when the lightnin' walks about

I ain't gonna need this house no longer, ain't gonna need this house no more
Ain't got time to fix the shingles, got no time to fix the door
Ain't got time to oil the hinges nor to mend the windowpanes
Ain't gonna need this house no longer, I'm gettin' ready to meet the saints

This ole house is a-gettin' shaky, this ole house is a-gettin' old
This ole house let in the rain, this ole house lets in the cold
Oh, my knees are gettin' chilly but I feel no fear or pain
'Cause I can see an angel a-peekin' through a broken windowpane

I ain't gonna need this house no longer, ain't gonna need this house no more
Ain't got time oil the hinges, got no time to oil the door
Ain't got time to fix the shingles, nor to mend the windowpanes
Ain't gonna need this house no longer, I'm gettin' ready to meet the saints

This ole house is afraid of thunder this ole house is afraid of storms
This ole house just groans and trembles when the night man plays guitar
This ole house is a-gettin' feeble this ole house is a-needin' paint
Just like me, it's tuckered out but I'm ready to meet the saints

I ain't gonna need this house no longer, ain't gonna need this house no more
Ain't got time to fix the shingles, ain't got time to fix the door
Ain't got time to oil the hinges nor to mend the windowpanes
Ain't gonna need this house no longer, I'm gettin' ready to meet the saints
