lyrics

Hoot Owl Standing out here waiting in the dark, in the dark
Hoot Owl Call won’t you call on back to me

Walked all night with nothing to light this dark path ahead
A memory and your luring voice
Don’t know when I’ll find you don’t know if I should try
But I’ll keep calling till I’m hoarse it keeps me alive

Hoot Owl Standing out here waiting in the dark, in the dark
Hoot Owl Call won’t you call on back to me

The grey wolf he’s a charmer, once I followed him
He led me far unto his den but would not let me in
The night bird sings so prettily you’d think that it’s God’s song
I look to the trees when nightfall comes and he’s long gone

Hoot Owl Standing out here waiting in the dark, in the dark
Hoot Owl Call won’t you call on back to me

Now I’ve heard tales of what you know and what your wide eyes see
To find you is to leave behind all decent company
In the dark is where you abide, you don’t want to be found
Here I am straining my ears for hints of your sound
