The Stranger

there was a stranger yellin'
and there was no tellin'
how the place was going to look by nine 
I like peaceful drinkin'
quiet thinkin'
and he talked too much to be a friend of mine

well that stranger was certain
he'd had more hurtin'
than any other man’s known in this world 
but I don't like whiners 
I likes my Shiners
and he weren't the only one to've lost a girl

I made polite-like
asked real nice-like 
all it did was get him mad 
he called me chicken 
he took a lickin'
that old boy got messed up pretty bad

there was a stranger yellin' 
and there was no tellin'
how torn apart the bar was going to be 
in the mornin' when I woke up
my pride broke up
I found out the stranger was me 
I found out the stranger was me
