TALL DARK STRANGER (Charlie Louvin / Ira Louvin) Charlie Louvin - 1964 Johnny & Jonie Mosby - 1965 There's a tall dark stranger in our town now It's plain to see he's on the prowl He's a little too bold and a little too daring And a lot too friendly with another guy's gal He's a-hangin' around lookin' you over Soon now he'll start moving in But when he moves in on my baby Right then and there his life will end For dear, I love you with a passion I'll not lose you to someone new I don't much like that tall dark stranger And I hate the way he smiles at you I've got a gun, thirty-eight special I've got a knife that's razor keen I've got a heart that's awful jealous And you know a jealous heart is mean He talks a lot, but he don't say much He brags about each love he wins He thinks he knows all of the answers But there's a few things I'm gonna show him For dear, I love you with a passion I'll not lose you to someone new I don't much like that tall dark stranger And I hate the way he smiles at you Well he called you up and he sent you flowers He begged you to go out with him Now, sweet love, take back his flowers And place them where they buried him For I love you with a passion I'll not lose you to someone new But I didn't much like that tall dark stranger Now he's where he can't smile at you Now he's where he can't smile at you (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - November 2010)
