Lyrics to "Sit Down Young Stranger" song by Gordon Lightfoot: I'm standin' in the doorway My head bowed in my hands Not knowin' where to sit Not knowin' where t. .I've been up to the mountain I've walked down by the sea I never questioned no one And no one questioned me My love was given freely And oftimes was returned I never came to borrow I only came to learn. Sometimes it would get lonely But it taught me how to cry And laughter came too easy For life to pass me by I never had a dollar That I didn't earn with pride Cause I had a million daydreams To keep me satisfied.

Renamed If You Could Read My Mind after that track's Top Five success, Sit Down Young Stranger provided Gordon Lightfoot with his first commercial success as a performer. Augmenting his basic trio with musical luminaries and labelmates like Ry Cooder, John Sebastian and Van Dyke Parks, and with string arrangements by Nick DeCaro and Randy Newman, Lightfoot produced an album filled with attractive, folky melodies. The title track told the tale of a draft resister gone to Canada without resorting to polemics.
