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've missed you all the time"

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"
