"Hello Walls" is an American country music song written by Willie Nelson and first recorded by Faron Young. It became a massive hit in 1961, reaching #1 country and spent 23 weeks on the chart. On other charts, it peaked at #12 pop, and was Young's only top 40 pop hit in the United States. “Hello Walls” introduced Nelson to a national audience. In 1996, Nelson recorded a rock version of the song with the band The Reverend Horton Heat for the album Twisted Willie.
Hello walls, (hello) (hello)
How'd things go for you today?
Don't you miss her
Since she up and walked away?
And I'll bet you dread to spend
Another lonely night with me
But lonely walls, I'll keep you company
Hello window (hello) (hello)
Well I see that you're still here
Aren't you lonely
Since our darlin' disappeared?
Well, look here, is that a teardrop
In the corner of your pane?
Now don't you try to tell me that it's rain
She went away and left us all alone
The way she planned
Guess we'll have to learn to get along
Without her if we can
Hello ceiling, (hello) (hello)
I'm gonna stare at you awhile
You know I can't sleep
So won't you bear with me awhile?
We must all stick together or else
I'll lose my mind
I've got a feelin', she'll be gone a long, long time
Faron Young (February 25, 1932 – December 10, 1996) was an American country music singer and songwriter from the early 1950s into the mid-1980s and one of its most successful and colorful stars. Hits including "If You Ain't Lovin' (You Ain't Livin')" and "Live Fast, Love Hard, Die Young" marked him as a honky-tonk singer in sound and personal style; and his chart-topping singles "Hello Walls" and "It's Four in the Morning" showed his versatility as a vocalist. Known as the Hillbilly Heartthrob, and following a movie role, the Young Sheriff, Young's singles reliably charted for more than 30 years. He committed suicide in 1996. Young is a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame. more »
