I'm A Stranger Here-Blind Boy Fuller
Vestapol, with a slide, Sonny Terry, harmonica

Says, I'm a stranger here, just blowed in your town
I'm a stranger here, just blowed in your town
But just because I'm a stranger, 'body wants to dog me around

Says, I wonder do my good gal know I'm here?
Yes, I wonder do my good gal know I'm here?
I says if she do, she sure don't seem to care

Then I wonder how can some people dog a poor stranger so?
Then I wonder how can some people dog a poor stranger so?
I said, he just remember, gonna reap just what they sow (Spoken: Aw, play it now, boy, play it for me now!)

SOLO

Then I will stay up North, nothing here that I can do
I will stay up North, nothing here that I can do
But hang around on the corner, sing them poor stranger blues

I'm goin' back South 'f I wear out 99 pair of shoes
Then I'm goin' back South 'f I wear out 99 pair of shoes
Then that where I will be welcome, won't have them stranger's blues
