(verse 1)

G           C               D
We had an apartment in the city.
G        C                    D
Me and Loretta liked living there.
Bm                         C
It's been years since the kids have grown,
        G             D
a life of their own, left us alone.

(verse 2)

G         C             D
John and Linda live in Omaha.
G         C              D
Joe is somewhere on the road.
Bm                   C
We lost Davy in the Korean war.
               G                          D
I still don't know what for, don't matter anymore.


(chorus)

F                         G
You know old trees just grow stronger,
 F                        G  
old rivers grow wilder every day,
Bm                   C
old people, ust grow lonesome
            G
waiting for someone to say,
  D              G - C - G - C
"Hello in there. Hello"


(verse 3)

G           C               D
Me and Loretta, we don't talk much now.
G             C               D          
She sits and stares through the backdoor screen.
Bm                         C
And all the news just repeats itself
G                        D
Like some forgotten dream that we've both seen.

(verse 4)

G         C           D
Someday I'll go and call up Rudy.
G       C             D    
We worked together at the factory.
Bm                         C
Ah, but what would I say when she asks what's new?
G                           D
"Nothing, what's with you? Nothing much to do."


(chorus)

F                              G
You know  old trees just grow stronger,
         F                     G  
and old rivers grow wilder every day,
Bm                          C
but old people,  just grow lonesome
            G
waiting for someone to say,
  D                G - C - G - C
"Hello in there. Hello"

(verse 5)

G             C                D
So if you're walking down the street sometime
 G        C      D
spot some hollow vacant eyes,
Bm               C
please don't just pass them by and stare
           G
as if you didn't care.
        D               G
Say, "Hello in there. Hello."

Isn't this a john Prine song?
-Rusell | 3/7/2004
yeah it is a John Prine song, some of the words are wrong, its from the hisbands perspective the whole time, and the friend from the factory is named Rudy
