John McDermott – Hello In There lyrics

We had an apartment in the city
Me and loretta liked living there
Well it's been years since the kid's have grown
A life of their own and left us alone

John and linda lived in omaha
And joe is somewhere on the road
And we lost davey 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 grow wider everyday
And old people just grow 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 backdoor screen
And all the news just repeats itself
Like some forgotten dream
That we'd both seen

Someday I'll go and call up rudy
We worked together
At a factory
But what do I sya?
If he asks what's new?
Nothing what's with you?
Nothing much to do


If you're out walking
Down the streets of town
And spot some hollow ancient eyes
Well please just don't
Pass them by and stare
As if you didn't care
Say hello in there hello
