Rank Strangers

print

I wandered again to my home in the mountain
Where in youths early dawn I was happy and free
I looked for my friends but I never could find them
I found they were all rank strangers to me

   Everybody I met seemed to be a rank stranger
   No mother no dad not a friend I could see
   They knew not my name and I knew not their faces
   I found they were all rank strangers to me

They’ve moved all away said the voice of a stranger
To a beautiful home by the bright crystal sea
Some beautiful day I’ll meet them in heaven
Where no one will be a stranger to me
