# From: I dream of genelee 
{t:Hello In There}
{st:John Prine}
{st:covered by 10,000 maniacs}

[G]We had an ap[C]artment in t[D]he city
Me and Loretta liked living there
[Bm]And it'd been years since the k[C]ids had grown
[G]A life of their own, [D]left us alone

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

      Y[C]ou know that old trees just [D]grow stronger
      A[C]nd old rivers get wilder eve[D]ry day
      O[Bm]ld people just get lo[C]nesome
      W[G]aiting for someone to say "Hell[D]o in there, Hell[G]o.[C]" [D] 

Me and Loretta, we don't talk much more
She sits and stares through the back door screen
And all the news just repeats itself
Like some forgotten dream that we=D5ve both seen

Some day I'll go and call up Rudy
We worked together at the factory
But what'll I say when he asks, "What's new?"
"Nothin'. What's with you?"  Nothin' much to do.


So if you're walkin' down the street some day
And spot some hollow, ancient eyes
Please don't just pass 'em by and stare
As if you didn't care, say "Hello in there, Hello."
