Had an apartment in the city
Me and Loretta liked livin' there
It's been years since the kids have grown
Lives of their own, left us alone

John and Linda live in Omaha
Joe is somewhere on the road
We lost Davy in the Korean War
Still don't know what for, don't matter anymore

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

Me and Loretta, we don't talk much now
She sits and stares at the backdoor screen
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
What'll I tell him if he asks, "What's new?"
Nothing, what's with you? Nothing much to do

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

So if you're walking down the street sometime
Spot some hollow ancient eyes
Please don't pass 'em by
And stare like you didn't care

Say, "Hello in there, hello"
Say, "Hello in there, hello"
