Havens, Richie - There's A Hole In The Future Lyrics




Like the smoke that rises to the ceiling, Mona
I keep seeing the things I seen yesterday
Yet the wheels keep turning, they keep turning, Mona,
Things I am seeing, I just can’t say

Like the sun that rises, I keep trying, Mona
To let everyone know that I won’t give up
Yes, the water is dripping, can’t you taste it, Mona,
Lift up your head from that bitter cup

Oh, Mona, don’t close the door
The fireman’s coming and he’s bringing more
Oh, Mona, the gardener’s here,
He’s got loads of dirt, he can plant your hurt
Oh, Mona, the water is on
The water is a-boiling and it won’t be long
Won’t be long, Won’t be long, Won’t be long.

Like the hole that’s waiting in the future, Mona
It could already be filled when we get there
There’s a hole that’s waiting in the future, Mona
It could already be filled when we get there
It could already be filled when we get there
It could already be filled when we get there

  1. Alan Smith

    There was something about Richie Havens.

  2. Alan Smith

    Richie Havens is overlooked today and that is too bad. He was unique.

    does anyone know the guitar chords for the main part?

    Not positive, but Haven's used alternative tuning for his guitar. That's why you see him playing chords by covering a fret (barring ) with his thumb. Best to sit and listen, figure out what key it's in and then try to scheme the tonic, subdominant / dominant pattern. Regardless, I've always loved this song

    On a side note I remember spotting Ritchie in a Howard Johnson's (HoJo's) "down the Jersey Shore" around 1967-8. I couldn't believe it was him. When I read his WIki it appeared that he died in NJ...guess it was possible.
