Come in Stranger - Johnny Cash

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 around home is fine
I've watched and I've waited for you to get back and I missed you all the time
[ guitar ]
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 stranger to me
