We had an apartment in the cityMe and my husband liked living thereIt's been years since the kids have grownA life of their own, left us aloneJohn and Linda live in OmahaJoe is somewhere on the roadWe lost Davy in the Korean warI still don't know what for, don't matter any moreYou know that old trees just grow strongerAnd old rivers grow wilder every dayBut old people, they just grow lonesomeWaiting for someone to say"Hello in there. Hello"Me and my husband, we don't talk much anymoreHe sits and stares through the backdoor screenAnd all the news just repeats itselfLike some forgotten dreamThat we've both seenSomeday I'll go and call up JudyWe worked together at the factoryAh, but what would I say when she asks what's new?Say, "Nothing, what's with you?Nothing much to do."You know that old trees just grow strongerAnd old rivers grow wilder every dayAh, but, but old people, they just grow lonesomeWaiting for someone to say"Hello in there. Hello."So if you're walking down the street sometimeAnd you should spot some hollow ancient eyesDon't you pass them by and stareAs if you didn't careSay, "Hello in there. Hello"
