Lonely Stranger
Eric Clapton

Eric Clapton
Unplugged
1992
Here's a song that I tried to learn a while ago with
Uzi, but this time around I play it with fingers, like
I should.  So learn it and enjoy!

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 Play ending
