Everybody ought to treat a stranger right, long ways from home
Everybody ought to treat a stranger right, a long ways from home

Be careful how you treat a stranger, by belying you turn him away
But the fear that he might endanger will drive him from your gate

Everybody ought to treat a stranger right, long ways from home
Everybody ought to treat a stranger right, a long ways from home

Be mindful of your speaking, careful how you go along
You must always treat a poor stranger right and accept him in your home

Everybody ought to treat a stranger right, long ways from home
Everybody ought to treat a stranger right, a long ways from home

All of us down here are strangers, none of us have no home
Don't ever hurt your brother and cause him to feel alone

Everybody ought to treat a stranger right, long ways from home
Everybody ought to treat a stranger right, a long ways from home

Everybody ought to treat a stranger right
