Charlie Musselwhite, "Rank Strangers to Me"



Amazon.com mp3 link [not available]


Album available
from amazon.com
Words by Albert Brumley Sr. Transcription from Charlie Musselwhite's version:

I wandered alone to my home by the river
Where in youths' early dawn I was happy and free
I looked for my friends but I never could find them
I found they were all rank strangers to me

Everybody I met
Seemed to be a rank stranger
No mother or dad
Not a friend could I see
They knew not my name
And I knew not their faces
I found they were all
Rank strangers to me

"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

Everybody I met
Seemed to be a rank stranger
No mother or dad
Not a friend could I see
They knew not my name
And I knew not their faces
I found they were all
Rank strangers to me
