Harris, Emmylou - Hello Stranger Lyrics

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
You are a rounder
And you're all out and down

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

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

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

    Wonderfull! Well coposed creation. The harmony is perfect between Emmylou, Nicolette and the musicians. This should be tought to composers and bands; this is how a song should be composed and performed. Congratulations!

  8. bev Edwards

    Love this , reminds me of my dad 😢

  9. TJ Wash

    When I’d play this in the car I’d sing Emmylou’s part then replay it and sing Nicolette’s part. Fun sing along by my lonesome.


    Years ago I would play this tune on the stereo and my little beagle dog would howl along with the tune.

  10. Mary Plaidy

    Needs a man's voice.


    I don't think so.

    Mary Plaidy

    @pecvillian Of course it does. It was originally written as a duet for a man and a women. Have you not listened to the words? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e8pwuk-Yc3E


    Actually, it was originally female voices, Sara and Maybelle Carter, who sang this, with some "bassin' in" by AP Carter. Another female version is by Hazel and Alice.

  11. Icarus Airways

    There was a time when Emmylou could sing, it has passed.


    I think she still sings pretty good.

    Frank Lilley

  17. Richard Leonard

  18. David R Bayez

    GeeHaw,Mule...Don't Git No Better'n,Emmylou...

  19. Gasparuccio X

    out of the states this kind of music it's not easily drinkable

    Dan Nájera

    What do you mean?

    Gasparuccio X

    well, country music , even the good one , wich is the music of emmylou ...it's not so popular, i guess is kind of strictly for the americans

    Pascal lemoine

    You Re right I m French and lived in the US as a teenager and and it seems to me that very few people in my country listen and like this kind of music. But I love it.

    Linda Baer

    Quand j'etais jeune, je chantais cette chanson mille fois pour les "gigs" avec un groupe de "Bluegrass." En 1979, il y avait beaucoup de personnes qui aiment cette musique, mais pas encore. Alors, il faut que je la chante encore une fois, avant d'etre trop vieille! Je suis americaine, et je cherche les moments a "parler" francais. J'en ai oublie trop...

  20. Frank Lilley

    There she goes again!!

  21. David R Bayez

    always,singin Purty....

  22. Kathy Snow

    This whole "Profiles" tape I had in college got worn out !

  24. atheling1066

    I've always loved Emmylou, this is good, but I love Helen Carter's version best. By nature & nurture a true country star

  25. Vanessa Jo Gurley

    some people don't realize what's in front of them......!

  26. Heartboy1031

    OK, is that Nicolette or Fay Starling singing the duet with Emmylou?

    Ronaldchi D

  29. Parents Advocating in Maryland

    One of my favorite songs. The intertwining voices of Harris and Larsen sends chills up spine when I hear this song. I've listened to it 3 times this evening.


    It is a good one. One of my favorites also.

  30. Bill Petersen
