The Little Old Log Cabin in the Lane

This song is by Clarence Ashley and Tex Isley and appears on the album Play and Sing American Folk Music (1966).

Oh, I'm getting old and feeble, I can no longer work
My rusty bladed hoe I've laid to rest
Old Mahssy and old Mist'us they are sleeping side by side
While their spirits am a-wandering with the blessed

Oh, the chimney's falling down, the roof is tumbling in
The leak lets in the sunshine and the rain
The only friend I've got now is this good old dog of mine
In that little old log cabin in the lane

Oh, it was such happy times not many years ago
My friends and loved ones gathered 'round the door
They would sing and dance at nighn while they played the old banjo
But alas they cannot play it any more

Oh, the chimney's falling down, the roof is tumbling in
The leak lets in the sunshine and the rain
The only friend I've got now is this good old dog of mine
In that little old log cabin in the lane

The hinges they have rusted, the door is falling down
The roof lets in the sunshine and the rain
The only friend I've got now is this good old dog of mine
In that little old log cabin in the lane

The paths they have growed up that led us around the hill
The fence have all gone to decay
The streams they have dried up where we used to go to mill
Everything has changed its course another way

Oh, the chimney's falling down, the roof is tumbling in
The leak lets in the sunshine and the rain
The only friend I've got now is this good old dog of mine
In that little old log cabin in the lane

I ain't got long to stay here, what little time
I've got I try to rest contented while I stay
Until the day death calls me to find a better home
Than this little old log cabin in the lane

Oh, the chimney's falling down, the roof is tumbling in
The leak lets in the sunshine and the rain
The only friend I've got now is this good old dog of mine
In that little old log cabin in the lane
