Hello in there  John Prine

[C]  [Dm]   [G]                               [C]We had an apa[Dm]rtment in the [G]city,
[C]Me and Lo[Dm]retta liked living t[G]here.
[Cmaj7]It'd been years s[C]ince the ki[F]ds had grown,
A life [Csus]of thei[C]r own and left us[G] alone.
[C]John and L[Dm]inda live in Om[G]aha,
[C]And Joe is s[Dm]omewhere on the r[G]oad.
[Cmaj7]We lost Davy in the K[F]orean war,
And still don't k[Csus]now wh[C]at for, don't matter an[G]ymore.
[Bb]Ya know old trees just grow st[C]ronger,
[Bb]And old rivers grow wilder ev'[C]ry day.
[Em]Old people just grow lo[F]nesome
Waiting for so[Csus]meone to say, "He[G]llo in there, hel[C]lo."
Me and Loretta, we don't talk much more,
She sits and stares through the back door screen.
And all the news just repeats itself
Like some forgotten dream that we've both seen.
Someday I'll go and call up Rudy,
We worked together at the factory.
But what could I say if asks "What's new?"
Nothing, what's with you? Nothing much to do.

Ya know old trees just grow stronger,
And old rivers grow wilder ev'ry day.
Old people just grow lonesome
Waiting for someone to say, "Hello in there, hello."

So if you're walking down the street sometime
And spot some hollow ancient eyes,
Please don't just pass 'em by and stare
As if you didn't care, say, "Hello in there, hello."
