Lyrics: Traditional
Music: Traditional

Hello stranger
Hello there stranger
Does this, road go all the way to Little Rock?
I've been standing here all day
and it hasn't gone nowhere yet

Hello stranger
Hello again stranger
Your corn looks awful little and yeller
I planted the little yeller kind

Hello stranger
Well, hi there stranger
I don't believe that you're too far from a fool, are you?
Believe what?
I said I don't believe you're very far from a fool
No that’s right, son
Just this guitar and mandolin here between us

Hello Stranger
Well, hiya stranger
How'd your potatoes turn out?
They didn't turn out at all
I had to dig them out

Hello stranger
Well, hello stranger
Can't you see that your roof is leaking?
Why don't you fix it?
Well, right now it's rainin' too hard
And when the suns a shinin’
why, it don’t leak!

Hello stranger
Well, hello there stranger
Have you lived here all your life?
Not yet!

Hello stranger
Hello again there, stranger
You're not very smart are you?
No ... but I ain't lost

There are many versions of this song... I've included the lyrics from Jerry Garcia and David Grisman's version recorded on Not For Kids Only.
