Behind The Song: John Prine, “Hello In There” 

Written when he was 22, Prine had great affection for the older generation and would help a good friend on their newspaper route.
“I delivered to a Baptist old people’s home where we’d have to go room-to-room,” he said, “and some of the patients would kind of pretend that you were a grandchild or nephew that had come to visit, instead of the guy delivering papers. That always stuck in my head.”
