Lonely Stranger

Title: Lonely Stranger
Artist: Eric Clapton
Album: Unplugged

Intro:
It goes something like this. Forget about the bar lines.
And you have to figure out the ryth in the intro yourself.

LYRICS:
play intro

play rhythm figure

I must be invisible
No one knows me
I have crawled down dead-end streets
On my hands and knees

I was born with a ragin' thirst
A hunger to be free
But I've learned through the years
Don't encourage me

CHORUS
Cause I'm a lonely stranger here
Well beyond my day
And I don't know what's goin' on
So I'll be on my way


When I walk, stay behind
Don't get close to me
Cause it's sure to end in tears
So just let me be

Some will say that I'm no good
Maybe I agree
Take a look then walk away
That's all right with me

CHORUS
