Rank Stranger

Stanley Bros

I wandered [G]again to my [D]home in the [G]mountains
Where in youth's early dawn I was happy and [D]free
I looked for my [G]friends, but I [D]never could [G]find them
I found they were all rank [D]strangers to [G]me  [C] [G]

Everybody I met seemed to be a rank stranger
No mother or dad, not a friend could I [D]see
They knew not my [G]name and I [D]knew not their [G]faces
I found they were [D]all rank strangers to [G]me  [C] [G]

They've all moved away, said the voice of a stranger
To a beautiful home by the bright crystal sea
Some beautiful day, I'll meet them in heaven
Where no one will be a stranger to me
