[ Verse 1 ]

G         Am               D7 D9 D7 D9
We had an apartment in the city
G         Am               D7 D9 D7 D9
Me and Loretta liked living there
Gmaj7                      C
It'd been years since the kids had grown
C      G                   D7 D9 D7 D9 
A life of their own and left us alone
G         Am           D7 D9 D7 D9
John and Linda live in Omaha
G         Am                D7 D9 D7 D9
And Joe is somewhere on the road
Gmaj7                C
We lost Davey in the Korean war
C               G                           D7 D9 D7 D9
And still don't know what for, don't matter anymore

[ Chorus 1 ]

F                           G
Ya know old trees just grow stronger
F                           G
And old rivers grow wilder every day
Gmaj7                C
Old people just grow lonesome
C            G               D7 D9 D7 D9    G
Waiting for someone to say, Hello in there, hello

[ Verse 2 ]

G       Am               D7 D9 D7 D9
Me and Loretta we don't talk much more
G            Am                 D7 D9 D7 D9
She sits and stares through the back door screen
Gmaj7                 C
And all the news just repeats itself
C            G                 D7 D9 D7 D9
Like some forgotten dream that we both seen
G       Am                  D7 D9 D7 D9
Someday I'll go and call up Rudy
G         Am              D7 D9 D7 D9
We worked together at the factory
Gmaj7                            C
But what should I say when asks, What's new?
C            G           D7 D9 D7 D9
Nothing what's with you, Nothing much to do

[ Chorus 2 ]

F                           G
Ya know old trees just grow stronger
F                           G
And old rivers grow wilder ev'ry day
Gmaj7                C
Old people just grow lonesome
C            G              D7 D9 D7 D9     G
Waiting for someone to say, Hello in there, hello

[ Verse 3 ]

G            Am               D7 D9 D7 D9
So if you're walking down the street sometime
G            Am               D7 D9 D7 D9
And spot some hollow ancient eyes,
Gmaj7                             C
Please don't just pass 'em by and stare
C            G              D7 D9 D7 D9     G
As if you didn't care, say, Hello in there, hello
