Say Hello in There
You know that old trees just grow stronger
And old rivers grow wilder ev'ry day
Old people just grow lonesome
Waiting for someone to say, "Hello in there, hello"
That's the chorus from Hello in There by John Prine. If you've never heard the song, follow the link and take a listen.
Now, here's a chance to follow John's good advice.
