She said, “Come in stranger,
B7                                E
it’s good to have you home.
A                                    E
I hurried through ’cause I knew it was you
B7                   E
when I saw your dog waggin’ his tail.
A                                             E
Honey, why didn’t you let me know by mail?
F#7                                    B7
You’ve been gone so long.”

She said, “Come in stranger.
B7                                  E
I know you’re weary from all the miles.
A                                E
Just sit right there in your easy chair,
B7                           E
and tell me all about the places you’ve been.
A                                  E
How long it’ll be before you leave again;
F#7                              B7
I hope it’s a long, long while.”

She said, “Come in stranger,
B7                            E
ev’rything around home is fine.
A                                                E
I’ve watched and I’ve waited for you to get back
B7                         E
and I missed you all the time.”

She said, “Come in stranger,
B7                                       E
oh, how I miss you when you’re gone.
A                             E
I walk the floor and I watch the door,
B7                              E
and when I lie awake and wonder where you could be,
A                                       E
I’d give anything to have you here with me
F#7                     B7
I get so lonesome all alone.”

She said, “Come in stranger,
B7                    E
and won’t you listen to my plea?
A                                     E
Stay long enough so that the one I love
B7                    E
is not a stranger to me”.
