about

When a hitch hiking loner is confronted by a friendly wanderer, he explains to him the importance of traveling alone.

lyrics

What say you passerby,
Who gives two a ride?
Someone will come for us in proper time
Either way, depart I must
So learn to love the bus
Mind your side and trust the line
A stranger is no friend of mine

Along your sad and silly trail
Hellos got lost in the mail
The service often fails
But your devices will suit you fine
A stranger is no friend of mine

I know you came to find
Nothing happens when you try
It sounds like both our fathers lied
I've tales of any old kind
But a stranger is no friend of mine

These roads hold more for you
With folks who adore to hear a joke or two

Good men die at home
They don't roam broke with a pocket comb
And good advice ain't never free
Especially from me

I know you came to find
Nothing happens when you try
It sounds like both our fathers lied
I've tales of any old kind
But a stranger is no friend of mine
