Text

I’m a Stranger Here

Hitch up my buggy, saddle up my old black mare.
Goin’ to find me an angel in this world somewhere.
I’m a stranger here. I’m a stranger everywhere.
I would go home, but honey, I’m a stranger there.

I’m worried now, but I won’t be worried long.
It takes a worried man to sing a worried song.
I’m a stranger here. I’m a stranger everywhere.
I would go home, but honey, I’m a stranger there.

Looked down that road far as I could see.
And a little bitty hand kept wavin’ back at me.
I’m a stranger here. I’m a stranger everywhere.
I would go home, but honey, I’m a stranger there.
