Dark Hollow

Words & Music:



           C     G         C

I'd rather be in some dark hollow

                    F    C

Where the sun don't ever shine

              C7   F

Than to be at home knowing that you're gone

                  G       C

Would cause me to lose my mind.



So, blow your whistle, freight train,

Carry me further on down the track.

I'm going away, I'm leaving today,

I'm going but I ain't coming back.


I'd rather be in some dark hollow

Where the sun don't ever shine

Than to be in some big city

In a small room with your love on my mind.
