HELLO IN THERE (John Prine) John Prine - 1971 Bette Midler - 1972 Jeffrey Shurtleff - 1972 Joan Baez - 1975 David Allan Coe - 1983 10,000 Maniacs - 1989 Eddi Reader - 1992 Andrew Calhoun - 1999 We had an apartment in the city Me and Loretta liked living there And it'd been years since the kids had grown A life of their own, left us alone John and Linda live in Omaha And Joe is somewhere on the road And we lost Davy in the Korean War And I still don't know what for, don't matter anymore You know that old trees just grow stronger And old rivers get wilder every day Old people just get lonesome Waiting for someone to say "Hello in there, Hello." 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 Some day I'll go and call up Rudy We worked together at the factory But what'll I say when he asks, "What's new?" "Nothin'. What's with you?" Nothin' much to do. You know that old trees just grow stronger And old rivers get wilder every day Old people just get lonesome Waiting for someone to say "Hello in there, Hello." So if you're walkin' down the street some day 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."
