Lost To A Stranger

We went out one evening my darling 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

   While they dancing and 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 playing had ended my dream

The band was playing an old fashioned waltz
The dance floor was crowded and it wasn’t long
When up stepped a stranger I never had seen
He asked my darling will you dance with me
