HELLO STRANGER
 

Hello stranger, put your loving hand in mine,

hello stranger, put your loving hand in mine,

you are a stranger, and you're a pal of mine

 

Get up rounder, let a working may lay down,

get up rounder, let a working man lay down,

you are a rounder, but you're all out and down

 

Every time I ride Six and Fourth Street car,

every time I ride Six and Fourth Street car,

I can see my baby peeping through the bars
 

She bowed her head, she waved both hands at me,

she bowed her head, she waved both hands at me,

I'm prison bound, I'm longing to be free.

 

Oh, I'll see you, when your troubles are like mine,

oh, I'll see you, when your troubles are like mine,

oh, I'll see you, when you haven't got a dime

 

Weeping like a willow and mourning like a dove,

weeping like a willow and mourning like a dove,

there's a girl of the country that I really love

 

Hello stranger, put your loving hand in mine,

hello stranger, put your loving hand in mine,

you are a stranger, and you're a pal of mine
