John Prine, Vox Populi

We had an apartment in the city,

Me and Loretta liked living there.

Well, it'd been years since the kids had grown,

A life of their own,

Left us alone.

John and Linda live in Omaha

And Joe is somewhere on the road.

We lost Davy in the Korean War

And I still don't know what for

Don't matter anymore.

You know that old trees just grow stronger

And old rivers grow wilder ev'ry day.
