Written by Wayne P. Walker and Irene Stanton
[C]You were no stranger when he [G7]introduced you to me
But you [F]pretended not to know me sweet[C]heart
Though I tried hard not to [Am]cry I found a [G7]teardrop in my eye
When you [F]walked off my [G7]world fell [C]apart
What can you [F]say when your lover becomes a [C]stranger to [Am]you
Just hope and [F]pray you recover that [D7]sweet love you [G7]knew
[C]So if you ever change your [Am]mind I won’t be [G7]hard to find
[F]Stranger you’re no [G7]stranger to [C]me
[F]Stranger you’re no [G7]stranger to [C]me[/chordpress]

Who is Lefty Frizzell?
– William Orville “Lefty” Frizzell (March 31, 1928 – July 19, 1975) was an American country music singer-songwriter and honky-tonk singer.He gained prominence in 1950 after two major hits, and throughout the decade was a very popular country performer.
Frizzell influenced a number of other country singers, including George Jones, Willie Nelson, Roy Orbison, The Everly Brothers, Keith Whitley, Merle Haggard, and John Fogerty. He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1982. After the death of Hank Williams in 1953, Frizzell released many songs that charted in the Top 10 of the Hot Country Songs charts. His success did not carry on into the 1960s, and after suffering from alcoholism, he died at age 47.
A vocalist who set the style of singing “the country way” for the generations that followed, Frizzell became one of the most successful and influential artists of country music throughout his career. He smoothed out the rough edges of a honky tonk song by sounding out syllables longer and singing longer. Because of this, his music became much more mainstream without losing its honky-tonk attitude and persona.
