I'm A Stranger Here - Just Rode In Your Town
Brownie McGhee & Sonny Terry

I'm a stranger here, just rode in your town, oh yes, I am
I'm a stranger here, just rode in your town
Well, because I'm a stranger, everybody wants to dog me 'round

Well, I wonder why some people treat the strangers so, oh yes, I do
I wonder why some people treat the strangers so
Well, he may be your best friend that you will never know

I'm gonna write home to daddy send me my railroad fare, oh yes, I am
I'm gonna write home to daddy send me my railroad fare
Well, if he don't send it, I don't mind walkin' down

   (spoken: Go ahead, man!)

Well, I wonder if my good girl knows I'm here, oh yes, I do
Lord, I wonder if my good girl knows I'm here
Well, if she do, she just don't seem to care

Well, I'm goin' back home wear out 99 pair of shoes, oh yes, I am
I'm goin' back home wear out 99 pair of shoes
Well, when I get back home I won't have these old stranger blues

I'm gonna leave this town, nothing here that I can do, oh no, it ain't,
I'm gonna leave this town, nothing here that I can do
Well, boy, sit right here in the troubadour, sing these old stranger blues

   (spoken: Let's go out together!)
