The Old House Guitar Chords Sheet Music And Lyrics. Recorded by John McCormack and later by John McDermott. Written by Fred O'Connor who was brought up at Baltrasna House, near Oldcastle. For John McDermott's version use a capo on the 3rd fret and 4th fret for the last verse.

[D]Lonely I [A]wander through [D]scenes of my [A]childhood
[D]They call back to me[G]mory those [D]happy days of [A]yore
[D]Gone are the [A]old folk the [D]house stands de[A]serted
No [D]light in the [G]window no wel[D]come [A]at the [D]door


Here's where the children played games on the heather
Here's where they sailed their wee boats on the burn
Where are they now? Some are dead some have wandered
No more to their home shall those children [A]re[D]turn

Capo on 4th fret for last verse.
Lonely's the house now and lonely the moorland
The children are scattered the old folk are gone
Why stand I here like a ghost and a shadow?
'Tis time I was movin' 'tis time I passed on
