This Old House/Your First Day In Heaven
by Vocal Union

Album: The Vocal Union
by Vocal Union


This old house once knew my children
This old house once knew my wife
This old house was the home and comfort
As we fought the storms of life
This old house once rang with laughter
This old house heard many shouts
Now she trembles in the darkness when the nightwind walks about

Chorus 1:
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)
Ain't got time to fix the doors (ain't got time)
Ain't got time to oil the hinges (ain't got time)
Or to fix no window pane (ain't got time)
Ain't gonna need this house no longer
I'm gettin' ready to meet the saints

This old house is gettin' shaky
This old house is gettin' old
This old house lets in the rain
And this old house lets in the cold
On my knees I'm a-gettin' chilly
But I feel no fear or pain
Cause I see an angel peakin'
Through the broken window pane

Repeat Chorus 1

Chorus 2:
Well it's a great, great morning
Your first day in Heaven
When you stroll down the golden avenue
There are mansions left and right
And you thrill with every sight
And the saints are always smiling
Saying, "How do you do?"
Oh it's a great, great morning
Your first day in Heaven
When you realize your worryin' days are through
You'll be glad you were not idle
Took time to read your Bible
It's a great, great morning for you

Well I had a dream, I must confess I hated to awake
He dreamed he was an angel at the great Pearly Gates
St. Peter said "Well hello there! Where have you been?
We've got your mansion ready, so come right on in!"
And Then he rang for an angel to act as a guide
He spread his wings a time or two and then let 'em fly

Repeat Chorus 2

Well it's a great morning
Oh it's a great morning
Oh it's a great morning
What a happy day (day, day, day)
