We had an apartment in the city
Me and my husband we liked living there
It's been years and years since the kids have grown
A lifetime of their own, they left us alone

And John and Linda they live in Omaha
And Joe is somewhere on the road
You know we lost Davy in the Korean War
I still don't know what for, don't matter anymore, don't matter

You know old trees they just grow stronger
Old rivers grow wilder every day
Old people, they just grow lonesome
Waiting for someone to say, "Hello in there, hello"

Now me and my husband, we don't talk much anymore
He sits, he stares out the backdoor screen
And all the news just repeats itself
Like some forgotten dream that we've both seen

Someday I'll go call my friend Judy
You know you know we used to worked together at the factories
But what will I say when she asks what's new?
Say, "Nothing, what's with you?, Nothing much to do

You know old trees they just grow stronger
And old rivers they grow wilder they grow wilder wilder every day
Old people, they just grow lonesome
Waiting for someone to say, "Hey hello in there, hello"

So if you're walking down the street sometime
And you spot some hollow ancient eyes
Don't just pass them by and stare as if you didn't care
You say, "Hello in there, hey, hello"
