Orbison, Roy - Sleepy Hollow Lyrics

There's a place I call Sleepy Hollow
Where I go when you're not around
There's a brook running clear in the meadow
I lose my blues in it's sound

The wind and the trees from the hollow
Whisper secrets of life in my ear
When I lay down in their shadows
I dream that you're still here

The bubbling babbling brook is your laughter
The wind blowing softly,your touch
I've found the one thing I'm after
Your love, your love means so much

Until you say that you love me
And make all my dreams come true
I'll go down to my Sleepy Hollow
And dream my dreams of you
I'll go down to my Sleepy Hollow
And dream my dreams of you

    the man and his voice from heaven



  10. Robin Wilson

    There can't be many singers/groups who put out "B" sides of such a consistentlly high standard

  11. Don Latymer

    One of my fovourites, but don't follow every lyric too exacly it brought me close to the Edge of Reality

  12. Don Latymer

    Dreaming is wrong, Acting is right

  13. Manu Müller

    Danke für die wundervollen Songs vom unvergessenen Roy O. den ich sehr vermisse.

  14. Nigel Lewis

    Roy at his best love this song!

  15. gerd munzert

    sicherlich gibt es den einen oder anderen song der mir nicht so gefällt......gut da nimmt man sich einen der einem besser gefällt.letztlich wer musik mag und auch etwas versteht kommt ohne  diese musik  nicht aus ,es ist it das beste was diese zeit zu bieten hat und hatte ,Elvis ist für für mich sehr weit weg.Roy ist der beste seiner zeit.

  17. Paul Cross

    People ask often what has happened to cause the craziness of today's world and the real answer is change. But subcategorized under that is the absence of people loving music like this by any artist that can perform it well. But Roy's touch put this recording into the stratosphere of musical recordings, a fairly common deed for Roy on anything he sang. Just seemed like a softer time overall when music like this was embraced. Glad I was able to experience it all by being born in '52.


    Paul Cross //// there is good music being made and played on alternative modes but I think Rock n Roll is in decline . The loss of three great artists recently has shown there are no condenters to replace them.
    The epic songs from the sixties to nineties just arn't been followed by great music. We can only hope the children now will produce great music like it used to be, full of emotion, pathos, pain, hope and despair, around 4-5 minutes long

    Sarah Kinsey

    I'm 18 and I love the oldies! Pink Floyd is my favorite band, and Roy is my favorite singer!

  18. Maurice Boyce

    A truly beautiful song.

  19. George Schedler

    I remember listening to this song in college, recalling my failed relationships. Great song, with much poignancy.

  20. barrygioportmorien1

    This is new to me, It's great that powerful voice can still be heard and appreciated here on YouTube.

  21. Les Reed

    So many tracks to love, from Roy, but this is one of the most beautiful.

    Les Reed

    Where do you start? His hits, of course, but numbers like "Flowers" & "There won't be many coming home" are another two favourites of mine, too.

    Maurice Boyce

    I think they are all on an album called "Our Love Song", I got it on a cassette possibly 25 years ago. yes, another hidden gem, truly beautiful music

  22. Carol daniels

  39. somebodynew1

    Excellent as usual.

  40. Mark J. Rockman

    Many, many of Roy' recordings were Orbison-Dees compositions.  This particular one, it turns out, is a Bill Dees composition (Dees only, without Roy's input).

  41. John Boyle

    Only ever heard this once before and that was him singing it n his dressing room, what a great guy made me cry then and still does today . Thanks for posting this

  42. Danny Stephens

    Also one of my favorites, along with "Crawling Back" ... my ol' buddy William "Bill" Dees was co-writer with Roy on both those and "It's Over" and "Oh, Pretty Woman" ... in all Bill wrote or co-wrote 64 songs recorded by Roy. Bill, too, left us just this past year after an extended bout with brain cancer.

  43. Geoff Campbell

    Beautiful song that tells it as it is. Roy always put thought meaning and soul into his songs. My favourite all time singer.

  44. Phil Cross

    Thanks once again Tom. Thanks to you and other posters for these great songs. Roy was the greatest.

  45. Christy Hotchkiss

    This reminds me a lot of Ricky Nelson, Lonesome town

  46. Spinifexman

    I have not heard this song ever before. What a lovely surprise

    thanks so much

  47. St Pauli

  52. mariakart

    There will never be another Roy O. He will live forever in the hearts of people who love and appreciate his great voice and fine music.

  53. Larry Jeffers

    Thank you for posting one of his most sad and beautiful songs. What a talent. There has not been anyone to come even close to his voice. His song writing, also.

  54. JCandRoyTogether

    Such a beautiful song...and sentiment...I'd love to sing it someday soon...JC...
