Raconteurs, The - Help Me Stranger Lyrics

If you call me I'll come running
And you can call me anytime
And these sixteen strings we're strumming
They will back up every line (every line, every line)

If you call me I'll come running
And you can call me anytime
And these sixteen strings we're strumming
They will back up every line

There's a motivation about you
That moves me when we're apart
It agitates my affection
And it wants to break my heart

Help me stranger
Help me get it off my mind
Get me back on my feet
Brother can you spare the time?

Help me stranger
Help me get it off my mind
Get me back on my feet
Brother can you spare the time?

It's not essential that I feel you
But it's a sensitive device
I'm reverential when I hear you
I genuflect to your advice

Well I wish I had the words
And I want those words to rhyme
And I wish I had the nerve
Cause I sure don't have the time

Help me stranger
Help me get it off my mind
Get me back on my feet
Brother can you spare the time?

Help me stranger
Help me get it off my mind
Get me back on my feet
Brother can you spare the time?

Brother can you spare the time?
Brother can you spare the time?
Brother can you spare the time?

  1. LittleBird

    It sounds weird hearing this after the tour, so much slower than live. When they 1st started the tour I was used to (this) album version and I thought "Wow they're really in a hurry playing", and now, this sounds like molasses. I like it slow better. Slow down ya'll.

  2. Paul Cachia

    Not even close to sounding like The Beatles!

    its 4:36 in Chicago just left undergound lougue, nd so really nice artist goth kids were quite mean bullies , nd we did well did fight scream or yell just dances, nd trances, try to walk off some mental illness but we hate bullies nd mean people . So this music right now is giving me the right groove nd mojo to survice this night alone. nd not hate myself . because we ran away instead of standing up for myself. so maybe one day the people that dismiss me might like me, nd inivite me for dinner. we dought but sometimes people care nd look out for others they don't know , to night your music. turned my evil energy in gobs of paint to make art nd play with . thank you , nd some day we hope we can work for you or at least thank you eye to eye.

  52. read

    saw them in dallas last night - i left early. im old now.....i get it. but i go to a show to see the band and see the people. this band is not good to see - a million old ugly men with boyfriends or the other bunch of dudes that looked like duck dynasty fans....and absolutely no females worth looking at - and just for the record....the music sucked....painfully so. i took my daughter to see The Wrecks not too long ago....in dallas. now that show had it going on....great music i guess....everybody seemed energized and there was such a good crowd of lively youngsters and many of the females were quite attractive. this j white band tries to play like they arent another one of J Whites bands....but the music and vibe is lame and gross and then you have this court jester - j white - running around the stage trying to invigorate the band and audience....but the music sucks...so it doesnt work. i left kind of pissed off wondering when that song about a buffalo was going to play - then i googled (yes i kept my phone in the show) and figured out it ws a dead weather song. whatever.

  53. Vladimir Kamenov

    This is the Raconteurs album that I needed in my life. This is beautiful. Thanks guys!! You could easily drop a tear from joy for this, atleast I did. Thanks again! The Milkman hat's owner is Forever ♡ and so is everyone around him ♡
