Lyrics
Just arrived on the seven-ten;
Thought I'd see the old gang again,
But you know how they come and go,
I'm just a stranger in town!

Everywhere, everyone I see
Seems to wonder who can I be,
And I swear no-one seems to care
About a stranger in town!

I saw a cottage on a lonely old street,
The weeds have grown round the gate.
Somehow I felt that you would wait here my sweet,
But it looks like I'm too late!

Guess I'll leave on the twelve-o-two,
Can't believe that there's no more you!
Is there nothing for me, will I always be
A stranger in my own home town?

Guess I'll leave on the twelve-o-two,
Can't believe that there's no more you!
Is there nothing for me, will I always be
A stranger in my own home town?

It hurts to be alone
With no-one of your own
When you're a stranger in your own home town!
