Today's song from the iTunes Library in
A Stranger In Town
Lyrics ,Music:Mel Torme
The song was publishe 1944.
It's a song written by Mel Torme in 1944.
Though not so many singers sang it,
the song is so beautiful to feel you lonesome a lot.
It's a lonesome feeling to go back home
And to wonder down the place
You get off the train
And you search and vain.
For just one familiar face.
Just arrived on the seven-ten,
Thought I'd see the old gang again,
But you know how they come and go,
I¡Çm just a stranger in town.
Everywhere, everyone I see
Seems to wonder who I can be
And I swear no one seems to care
About a stranger in town.
I saw a cottage on a lonely old street,
The weeds have grown 'round the gate.
Somehow I felt that you would wait here, my sweet.
But it looks like I'm too late.
Guess I'll leave on the twelve-o-two,
Can't believe that there's no more you.
Is there nothing for me,
Will I always be?
A stranger in my old town.
It hurts to be alone
With no-one of your own
When you're a stranger in your own home town!

You can never capture it again. "
