The Ole House

Just an old house in Sprimgfiled, IL (location:  39.763408,-89.668398).  Makes me think of the old Rosemary Clooney song, #1 on the billboard charts in 1954.  I bit before my time, but I remember this one from my parents' old 78 rpm records.

This ole house once knew his children
This ole house once knew his wife
This ole house was home and comfort
As they fought the storms of life
This old house once rang with laughter
This old house heard many shouts
Now he trembles in the darkness
When the lightnin' walks about
