Ricky Skaggs — Lost To A Stranger lyrics

We went out one evenin', my darlin' and I.
She seemed so different and I wondered why.
We stopped at a tavern and there I could see.
That she loved another one better than me.

The band was playin' an old fashioned waltz.
The dance floor was crowded and I wasn't long,
When up stepped a stranger, I never had seen.
He asked my darlin': "Will you dance with me?"

While they were dancin', I sat alone.
I knew I had lost her, the one I loved.
Lost to a stranger I never had seen.
The waltz they were playin' had ended my dream.

Instrumental break.

While they were dancin', I sat alone.
I knew I had lost her, the one I loved.
Lost to a stranger I never had seen.
The waltz they were playin' had ended my dream
