"The House Is Falling Down " as written by and John R. Cash....
Man had need of shelter from the evil from the night
The devil wind was blowin and from heaven came a light
The Son of god a carpenter and he came with a plan
To build a house where heaven could be offered unto man

When he came here he laid down a mighty firm foundation
And the columns and the beams were churches scattered through the nations
And then rooms were added to it on that same old solid rock
And roofs were raised by willing hands from the bottom to the top

Then people came and filled the house with singin prayer and praise
Some turned and rejected his house fell on meaner days
O Son of God! O Carpenter! Will you come back around?
The blocks and beams are crumbling and the house is falling down

Now the storm is ragin’ and the devil's angry roar
Is screaming at the windows and howling at the door
And though the faithful few inside are standing true and strong
The house has been neglected and it won’t be standing long

When he came here he laid down a mighty firm foundation
And the columns and the beams were churches scattered through the nations
And then rooms were added to it on that same old solid rock
And roofs were raised by willing hands from the bottom to the top

Then people came and filled the house with singin prayer and praise
Some turned and rejected his house fell on meaner days
O Son of God! O Carpenter! Will you come back around?
Our blocks and beams are crumbling and the house is falling down
O Son of God! O Carpenter! Will you come back around?
The blocks and beams are crumbling and the house is falling down
