I 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 panes
Ain't a gonna need this house no longer
I’m a-gettin' ready to meet the saints

Well this ole house once knew my children.
This ole house once knew my life
This ole house was home and comfort
As we lived through storm and strife
This ole house once rang with laughter
This ole house heard many shouts
Now she trembles in the darkness
When the lightning walks about

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
I ain't got time to oil the hinges
Nor to mend the window panes
Ain't a gonna need this house no longer
I’m a-gettin' ready to meet the saints

Now my old hound dog lies a sleepin'
He don't know I'm gonna leave
Else he'd wake up by the fireplace
He'd hound, growl and grieve
But my huntin' days are over
Ain't gonna hunt the coon no more
Gabriel just brought in my chariot
When the wind blew down the door

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
I ain't got time to oil the hinges
Nor to mend the window panes
Ain't a gonna need this house no longer
I’m a-gettin' ready to meet the saints
