Lyrics:


2. I'm like a stranger, like a stranger in my own home town

I'm like a stranger, like a stranger in my own home town
My so called friends stopped being friendly
Oh, but you can't keep a good man down, oh no, can't get him down

1. I came home with good intentions about 5 or 6 years ago
I came home with good intentions about 5 or 6 years ago
But my home town won't accept me
Just don't feel welcome here no more

My home town won't accept me
Just don't feel welcome here no more

1. 2. (repeat)

 

My so called friends stopped being friendly
Oh, but you can't keep a good man down, oh no, can't get him down
