Need the name, lyrics and chords of this song. Don't know the title, but it starts out,

This house goes on sale every Wednesday morning, and taken off the market every afternoon

Thanks to all

Darn! I was shooting for a record, but my Internet service is sluggish just now. A five-minute response time is miserable. Well, since Max wants us to post lyrics and not just links, here goes.
I suppose you could take some time to analyze this song and come up with some sort of hidden meaning to it. Noel Paul Stookey is a very nice guy, but sometimes his lyrics are a bit foggy.

THE HOUSE SONG
Stookey/Bannard- Neworld Media Music Publishers-ASCAP

This house goes on sale ev'ry Wednesday morning
And taken off the market in the afternoon.
You can buy a piece of it if you want to
It's been good to me if it's been good for you.

Take the grand look now the fire is burning
Is that your reflection on the wall?
I can show you this room and some others
If you came to see the house at all.

Careful up the stairs, a few are missing
I haven't had the time to make repairs
First step is the hardest one to master
Last one I'm not really sure is there.

This room here once had childish laughter
And I come back to hear it now and again
I can't say that I'm certain what you're after
But in this room, a part of you will remain.

Second floor, the lady sleeps in waiting
Past the lantern, tiptoe in its glance
In the room the soft brown arms of shadow
This room the hardest one to pass.

How much will you pay to live in the attic?
The shavings off your mind are the only rent
I left some would there if you thought you couldn't
Or if the shouldn't that you've bought has been spent.

This house goes on sale ev'ry Wednesday morning
And taken off the market in the afternoon.
You can buy a piece of it if you want to
It's been good for me if it's been good for you.

Ow! I had forgotten this song. In the wake of my divorce it takes on new meaning. It reminds me of the last time I walked through the house my wife and I built, my footsteps echoing through empty rooms.

This room here once had childish laughter
And I come back to hear it now and again

This reminds me how much I used to dislike PP&M -- I listened to some of the G2 files on that website Joe pointed out, and recoiled at the patrician over-refinement and whitebread polish veneer they impose on songs. Rather listen to Frank Warner, or Bessie Smith, any day. I think they lack soul in a serious way
