I'm a stranger, just blowed in your town
So I want my train fare home, so I have no worries on my babe

I'm a stranger here, just blowed in your town
Oh yes, I am, I'm a stranger here, just blowed 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
Go ahead man

Yes, yes, yes

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 ninety-nine pair of shoes
Oh yes, I am, I'm goin' back home wear out ninety-nine 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

Let's go out together
Yes, yes, yes
