_____________________________________________________________

 I'm a stranger here, I just blowed in your town (repeat)
Just because I'm a stranger the people want to dog me round

I wonder how can some people, dog a poor stranger so (repeat)
Just because I'm a stranger everybody want to dog me round

I would stay up North, but nothin' there that I can do (repeat)
Just hang around the corner and sing this poor stranger blues

I'm goin' back South, if I wear out ninety-nine pair o shoes (repeat)
Well I know I'll be welcome and I won't have these stranger blues
