I was a stranger passing through your town.
I was a stranger passing through your town.

Well, I asked you a favor good gal you turned me down
You may see me out a walking walking down that railroad track
You may see me out a walking walking down that railroad track
But good gal you done me wrong, I ain't never coming back.

--- Instrumental ---

I've rode that old Southern I've rode that L & N
I've rode that old Southern I've rode that L & N
And if the police don't get me
I'm gonna ride them again.

--- Instrumental ---

Some like Chicago some love Memphis Tennessee
Some like Chicago some love Memphis Tennessee
Hey pretty mama give me sweet Dallas Texas
Where the women think the world of me.

--- Instrumental ---

I'm not singing the blues I'm just tellin' you the hard luck I've had
I'm not singing the blues I'm just tellin' you the hard luck I've had
'Cause the blues ain't nothing
But a good man feeling bad...
