A universal theme of poverty and sadness, the song is simple yet emotionally raw, focusing on a single woman in Appalachia, before broadening to include destitute women around the world.

Lyrics

"Appalachian Hollow" (c) Landers 2015

I can see a wounded bird flying high
on the wing
I can feel the mountains move over a millennium
And I can hear the river cry
Wash away she's tumbling, tumbling
As the season's fly in Appalachian Hollow

In a world of where there wells run dry
the children are half asleep
There's a tear in their mother's eye
she knows they'll never have enough to eat
And she is so afraid
She dreams she's tumbling, tumbling
As the world parade it just walks on by

She's been trying
And she's been crying
Her prayers unanswered
And her angels silent

She works her fingers to the bone
a child at her breast
The girl's so all alone
Her heart's broke in so many pieces
And she is so afraid
She dreams she's tumbling, tumbling
As the world parade
It just walks on by

She's been trying
And she's been crying
Her prayers unanswered
And her angels silent

I can see a wounded bird flying high
on the wing
I can feel the mountains move over a millennium
And I can hear the river cry
Wash away she's tumbling, tumbling
As the seasons fly in Appalachian Hollow

In Rio de Janiero
In Antananarivo
In the heart of Aleppo
Anywhere you go
Anywhere you go
