Johnny Cash

John R. "Johnny" Cash (February 26, 1932 – September 12, 2003), was an American singer-songwriter, actor, and author, who has been called one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. Although he is primarily remembered as a country music icon, his songs and sound spanned many other genres including rockabilly and rock and roll—especially early in his career—as well as blues, folk, and gospel. This crossover appeal led to Cash being inducted in the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and Gospel Music Hall of Fame. more »

She said come in stranger 
It's good to have you home 
I hurried through 'cause I knew it was you 
When I saw your dog, waggin' his tail 
Honey, why didn't you let me know by mail 
You've been gone so long 
She said come in stranger 

I know you're weary from all the miles 
Just sit right there in your easy chair 
And tell me all about the places you've been 
How long it'll be before you leave again 
I hope it's a long, long while 
She said come in stranger 

Everything 'round home is fine 
I've watched and I've waited for you to get back 
And I missed you all the time 

She said come in, stranger 
Oh how I miss you when you're gone 
I walk the floor and I watch the door 
And when I lie awake and wonder where you can be 
I'd give anything to have you here with me 
I get so lonesome all alone 
She said come in, stranger 

And won't you listen to my plea 
Stay long enough, so that the one I love 
Is not a stranger to me
