By Kris Kristofferson and Stephen Bruton

Monday caught me early
Comin' down by surprise
Waiting for a signal light to change
Breathing something bitter
That was burnin' my eyes
Thinkin' I'd go drink myself
Back home on the range

Shot down and sinking fast on Sunset Strip
Holding on to something in my head
Everything gets heavy when you're
Losin' your grip
Nothin' looks as empty as a motel bed

Chorus:
Lord, I'm still a stranger
In this God-forsaken land
Farther from my future and my friends
I'm gonna take enough
To wake me up and make me one
Last one night stand
Then take me home to something's
Gonna smile at me again

Break my connections
When I shake me loose
Give my old equipment to the band
Let my friend the devil
Pay the rest of my dues
Take me home to something's
Gonna smile at me again
