Johnny Cash - Come In Stranger tab version 2

Come In, Stranger

Tabbed by: MrModigh

Written by: John R. Cash

Capo on 1st fret.

This is from the Sun-recordings, made in the 50's.
The intro and solo are as played by Luther Perkins.

If you want to play along with the recording, 
you have to tune up your guitar 3/4 (or 1/4 with the capo on 1st fret).
This will match Luther's tuning.

Verse 1 E B7 E She said, "Come in, stranger, it's good to have you home. A E I hurried through 'cause I knew it was you B7 E When I saw your dog waggin' his tail. A E Honey, why didn't you let me know by mail? F#7 B7 You've been gone so long." Verse 2 E B7 E She said, "Come in, stranger. I know you're weary from all the miles. A E Just sit right there in your easy chair, B7 E And tell me all about the places you've been. A E How long it'll be before you leave again; F#7 B7 I hope it's a long, long while." E B7 E She said, "Come in, stranger, ev'rything around home is fine. A E I've watched and I've waited for you to get back B7 E And I missed you all the time."

Verse 3 E B7 E She said, "Come in, stranger, oh, how I miss you when you're gone. A E I walk the floor and I watch the door, B7 E And when I lie awake and wonder where you could be, A E I'd give anything to have you here with me. F#7 B7 I get so lonesome all alone." E B7 E She said, "Come in, stranger, and won't you listen to my plea? A E Stay long enough so that the one I love B7 E Is not a stranger to me".
