It was released in January 1982 as the third and final single from his debut album Strait Country. It peaked at number 3 in the United States, while it was a number 2 in Canada
Kevin John Coyne of Country Universe gave the song a B- grade, saying that if Strait’s voice wasn’t so “distinctive and familiar, you could be forgiven for mistaking this for Johnny Lee’s, “Lookin’ for Love.” Billboard reviewed the song favorably, saying that “Strait’s got another winner in this lively promise of changing ways.

George Strait – If You’re Thinking You Want a Stranger (There’s One Coming Home) Lyrics

Lately you’ve been showin’ all the signs
Of a woman with someone else on her mind.
It’s not your fault, it’s the nights I’ve left you alone,
And if you’re thinkin’ you want a stranger, there’s one coming home.
[Chorus:]
If you’re thinkin’ you want a stranger, I’ll soon be there.
You’re gonna see a change in me, this time I swear.
No more late nights, comin’ in at daylight, and no more doin’ you wrong.
If you’re thinkin’ you want a stranger, there’s one coming home.
Bought you a silk gown and perfume today.
Picked up some roses and champagne on the way.
Oh I called to ask you to put some soft music on.
‘Cause if you’re thinkin’ you want a stranger, there’s one coming home.
[Chorus]
If you’re thinkin’ you want a stranger, there’s one coming home.
