I'm weary from this river
It flows far but never nearer to my home
And the war is upon the shores
Keep the single girls indoors
And so all my love songs fall on wasted ears

I grow tired of this highway
It runs far but never my way
Don't you know, but the company of strangers
And the close and the present dangers
Seem to pick me up like an old crow in the snow

Because I'm a stranger in a strange land
Guess I left the world behind
Yeah my love is like the galaxy seems slow
But it sure does shine and when I'm gone you'll know me by
The friends I leave behind I'm weary of this losing

But what choice is there in choosing if you find
Yourself a stranger in a stranger place
With your beat up shoes and an old suitcase
And a wristwatch that don't ever seem to tell the time
But there's a warm and a gentle feeling

It ain't ever worth concealing what you see
And the rains inside my brains
Keeps the memories contained
But I miss you like the wind misses the trees
Because I'm a stranger in a strange land

Guess I left the world behind
But my love is like the galaxy seems slow
But it sure does shine
And when I'm gone you'll know me by
The friends I leave behind
