Original video
Hello stranger
Put your loving hand in mine
Hello stranger
Put your loving hand in mine
You are a stranger
And you're a friend of mine

Get up, rounder
Let a working girl lay down
Get up, rounder
Let a working girl lay down
You are a rounder
And you're all out and down

Now every time
I ride the four and six street cars
Every time
I ride the four and six street cars
I can see my baby
Peeping through the bars

Well, he bowed his head
And he waved both hands at me
He bowed his head
And he waved both hands at me
He's prison bound
And longing to be free

Well I'll see you
When your troubles are like mine
I'll see you
When your troubles are like mine
Yes, I'll see you
When you haven't got a dime

Weeping like a willow
And mournin' like a dove
Weeping like a willow
And mournin' like a dove
There's a man of country
That I really love

Well hello stranger
Put your loving hand in mine
Hello stranger
Put your loving hand in mine
You are a stranger
And you're a friend of mine...
