Hoot Owl Blues
©2004 Janis Carper

Listen to that hoot owl, can you hear him callin?
He’ll sing the blues til the sun goes down
And when that darkness starts a fallin'
He spreads his wings without a sound

He makes you think he’s sad and lonely
With his song so mournful blue
Like he has lost his one and only
And his heart’s broken in two

Hoot owl does his business
In the dark of night
Wise and silent stalker
he’ll chase the morning light

Listen to that hoot owl, he’s got your number
And he wears your judgment thin
After awhile you'll start to wonder
What kind of hold he’s got you in

Listen to that hoot owl, can you hear him cryin?
I think he’s callin’ out your name
The song he’s singing makes you think he’s dyin’
That’s how he plays his lonesome game

Hoot owl does his business
In the dark of night
Wise and silent stalker
he’s got you in his sights
