Merle Haggard — (My Friends Are Gonna Be) Strangers lyrics

Oh, the love you promised would be mine forever
I would have bet my bottom dollar on
Well, it sure turned out to be a short forever
Just once I turned my back and you were gone

From now on all my friends are gonna be strangers
I'm all through ever trusting anyone
The only thing I can count on now is my fingers
I was a fool believing in you, now you are gone

It amazes me, not knowing any better
Than to think I had a love who would be true
Why, I should be taken out, tarred and feathered
To have let myself be taken in by you
[ Lyrics from: ]
