Subject: Lyr Add: I SAW A STRANGER WITH YOUR HAIR (J Gorka)
Here's one I like:

I SAW A STRANGER WITH YOUR HAIR
(John Gorka)

I saw a stranger with your hair,
Tried to make her give it back
So I could send it off to you,
Maybe Federal Express,
'Cause I know you'd miss it.
I saw another with your eyes.
The flash just turned my head.
I went to try them on for size,
But they looked the other way,
And they wouldn't listen.

CHORUS: But you're never hard to find in a crowd,
People around you smiling out loud.
Their feet don't touch the ground.
No, their feet don't touch the ground.
No, their feet don't touch the ground.

I heard a stranger with your voice.
It took me by surprise.
Again, I found it wasn't you,
Just an angel in disguise,
In for a visit.
By the way, how is my heart?
I haven't seen it since you left.
I'm almost sure it followed you.
Will you sometime send it back?
I'll buy the ticket. CHORUS

I saw a stranger with your hair.
I saw another with your eyes.
I heard an angel with your voice.
By the way, how is my heart?
By the way, how is my heart?

[Sung by John Gorka on his album "I Know," Red House #18, 1987. You can hear an archived radio program containing this song by going to Minnesota Public Radio's Morning Show and clicking on "Listen to the show" under "Wednesday, January 12, 2005." The song begins 9 minutes and 24 seconds from the beginning of the program. (RealPlayer lets you skip right to it.) John Gorka was a guest on this program so you can hear him chat with Dale Connelly, the host.]
