Hollow


Words and music by Mark Duval

Down in the hollow, I saw her in the spring
calling to the cranes up in the sky
I couldn't help but following her when I heard her sing
I made up melodies to hear her harmonize

Down in the hollow, up before the sun
out in the garden pulling weeds
she can swing a 9-pound hammer, she's handy with a gun
and tells me I got nothing that she needs

Sound sleeper, easy keeper, watch the horses run
my heart beats faster when I see her standing in the sun
flowing like a river, leave no trail to follow
I left my love, down in the hollow

Horses on the high line, flowers in a vase
what could I ever offer for her love
I ask her for the time, she puts me in my place
and says I never seem to get enough

Sound sleeper, easy keeper, watch the horses run
my heart beats faster when I see her standing in the sun
flowing like a river, leave no trail to follow
I left my love, down in the hollow

Ruts are getting deeper, the drive is getting wide
I haven't seen the hollow for so long
I never could complete her, no matter how I tried
now all that's left of our love is a song
