Dark Hollow lyrics

Bill Browning

I'd rather be in some dark hollow
Where the sun don't never shine
Than to be all alone and far away from home
It would cause me to lose my mind

CHO:
So blow your whistle fright train
Carry me father on down the track
Well 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 never shine
That to be alone in some big city
In a small room with you on my mind
