You've Turned To A Stranger

Wanda Jackson

(Jack Rhodes - Freddy Franks, Capitol 4142, 1959)

The nights make you lonely, so you want to roam
You're no longer happy with me or your home
Your search for excitement continues to grow
You've turned to a stranger that I hardly know

The flashing of the neon and the songs that they play
The gay crowds and the laughter have lured you away
Once you wanted me with you everywhere that you'd go
But you've turned to a stranger that I hardly know

I can't wash the pain from my tortured mind
With the gay crowds and the music and the bright lights that shine
If this makes you happy, I don't blame you if you go
You've turned to a stranger that I hardly know

The glamour of the nightlife can't lure me away
I'd rather sit waiting
And hope for the day you'll return with your love that's faded so slow
No longer a stranger that I hardly know
