Buck Owens – Tall Dark Stranger lyrics

Beware of a tall dark stranger
If he comes ridin’ into your town
A tall dark stranger is danger (danger)
So don’t let no stranger hang around

For he can capture the heart of a woman
With one glance from his flashing brown eyes
Like a bolt from the blue he can steal her from you
Then jump up on his pony and ride ride ride
So beware of a tall dark stranger…
If he comes ridin’ into your town
A tall dark stranger is danger (danger)
So don’t let no stranger hang around

They say a tall dark stranger is a demon
And that a devil rides closely by his side
With no warning he can strike like the thief in the night
Then jump up on his pony and ride, ride, ride
So beware of a tall dark stranger…
If he comes ridin’ into your town
A tall dark stranger is danger (danger)
So don’t let no stranger hang around
So don’t let no stranger hang around
