Merle Haggard Stranger In The City Lyrics

Last updated: 06/21/2012 11:00:00 AM

I can't be with you this evening
I can't be with you tonight
Somehow you must have read me wrong
I need you to read me right

I'm a stranger in the city
A gypsy passing through
My heart's at home with someone else
I'd be killing time with you

I'm a stranger in the city
And you tried to lead me wrong
I'm in town to do a show tonight
This day, to sing my song

We can never get together
That leaves nothin' left to do
I'm a stranger in the city
Not the man for you

Now I'm not ashamed to feel this way
'Cause I'm a man who has a lot
The kind of love that I have at home, baby
Can't be sold or lost

You've got all it takes to run my life
I've risen to fame 'cause you do
I'm a stranger in the city
Not the man for you
I'm a stranger in the city
Not the man for you
