"Appalachian Hollow" focuses on a young woman in Appalachia, but symbolizes disenfranchised women around the world, and intends to remind us to recognize their plight in a way to work towards helping all disenfranchised people. It's a very simple three chord progression; A, G, D that circles around throughout this world folk song, a song simple in traditional root music. The rhythms of nature and time are notions I'd hoped to capture...

Lyrics

"Appalachian Hollow" (c) Landers 2015

GUITAR TAB - The entire song is A-G-D-A, repeatedly.

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
