刚看到《I Love Rock 'N' Roll》的唱作者Alan Merrill染上新冠去世，69岁，坐标曼
John Prine。我没听过他的歌，不过另一位殿堂级大师Joan Baez为他唱歌，祝他痊愈
很好，一点看不出年近八十。年轻时的Joan Baez算不上漂亮；现在没了当年的叛逆不羁，多了一份典雅从容，显得很美。她唱的是John Prine写的歌《Hello In There》，说是她四十多年的演唱生涯中点赞最多的歌曲之一。看歌词正是写老年人的。有空一定要去老人院做点义工。
Hello In There
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
Ya' 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"
Me and Loretta, we don't talk much more
She sits and stares through the back door screen
And all the news just repeats itself
Like some forgotten dream that we've both seen
Someday I'll go and call up Rudy
We worked together at the factory
But what could I say if asks "What's new?"
"Nothing, what's with you? Nothing much to do"
So if you're walking down the street sometime
And spot some hollow ancient eyes
Please don't just pass 'em by and stare
As if you didn't care, say, "Hello in there, hello"
