Ronnie Milsap - Stranger In My House Lyrics

There's a silence here between us
I've never heard before
And I can't find the love
In her eyes anymore
There's some changes going on
I'm beginning to understand
When I'm holding her
I swear I feel the presence of another man

There's a stranger in my house
Somebody here that I can't see
Stranger in my house
Somebody here trying to take her away from me

She sits staring out the window
A million miles away
And when I ask if she's all right
She never has too much to say
Is it somebody we both know
Or somebody she just met
Is she loving him in her mind
While she's lying here in my bed

There's a stranger in my house
Somebody here that I can't see
Stranger in my house
Somebody here trying to take her away from me

Suspicions lead to questions
And questions to alibis
Is it just my imagination
Or has her love turned into lies

There's a stranger in my house
Somebody's here that I can't see
Stranger in my house
Somebody here trying to take her away
Stranger in my house
Somebody's here that I can't see
Stranger in my house
Somebody here trying to take her away
Stranger in my house
Somebody here trying to take her away from me

  23. Erwin Miranda

    I first heard this song in a movie .true story of a woman who was being attacked by a sexual demon and the husband who was trying to save her from these attacks.

  24. JasonL77

    I remember when my Mom would put on the Country Music station as she was cleaning house, this song would occasionally come on. This was also around the time I was learning about “Stranger Danger” in school. So whenever Ronnie sang “Stranger in my house”, I would always think “If there’s a stranger in his house, why doesn’t he just call the police?”

    Cut me some slack. I was six.

  25. Matej Frelih

    I have a story that I'm sure no one would believe but can back up everything I say!!! I was 18 and In June of 1988 my Grandfather, Pastor Ronald Holland died. Of course I went to his funeral and was even one of his pall bearers. After the funeral or wake as it is called in the south, we were at a reception and I noticed a blind man sitting at a picnic table and decided to talk to him. I was 18 and had never listened to country music in my life. It just wasn't my thing at the time. i introduced myself ,Greg Hardin, and asked him how he was. He said fine and asked me how I was related to Pastor Holland. I told him he was my Grandfather on my mothers side. He just smiled and said "boy I could tell you some stories" and laughed out loud! He then proceeded to tell me how he was named after my Grandfather and that my Grandmother, Bessie Holland drove 4 hours one night to pick him up from school when he was slapped by a resident advisor of a school he was attending. He stayed with my grandparents for almost a week because he was terribly afraid to call his grandmother to let her know he had left school. We talked for more than an hour and he told me things about my Grandparents I never knew. I got up and walked away after some time and my mother stopped me and asked me what we talked about. I told her about his stories and she just chuckled. Then she said "You do know who that is don't you?" I said no who is he? She replied "that's Ronnie Milsap" I said who is that? She just laughed and walked away!

  37. William Kimmer

  38. Yolanda Suggs


  39. Michael Gastineau

    Real country music

  40. wheelmanstan

    1k dislikes? that's the biggest mystery I've ever seen

  41. wheelmanstan

    he never saw it coming...

  42. MrBigrobmjca3

    Not fighting. This song is NOT Country. It should have been referred to the pop music radio people. Would it have done good on the pop charts, we’ll never know. Country was pushing the envelope in the 80s’ (Angel Of The Morning, some Earl Thomas Conley stuff (good stuff, rip.), but as someone who has listened to country, played it on the radio, and did actually study it’s history, I believe that this particular song pushed the envelope too far on the synthesizers.

  43. gneisenau77

    Totally awkward wedding music...

  44. l2string

    Should have just called this "I Can't Stand It"

  45. carolyn allen

    Always loved Ronnie Milsap. What a talent! It is sad what passes for talent these days in country music!

    Hes mostly blind, singing about that what is being hid from him. And pretending to go along with it feeling the truth unseen

  57. xbenzon

    Get it, it’s because he’s blind

    Anne Baskerville

    Beautifully written and Roni did a great job singing.
    This is true country man. Can we bring this back, I don’t think so. RIP county music you are dearly missed.

  70. Joshua Brooks

    This would be a perfect song to play while you're driving around on Halloween night trick or treating. Anyone agree?

  77. 1VaDude

    Truly a great song!

  78. Anne Baskerville

    Okay. I have skimmed through the whole comment section. There was a comment that I loved reading. I can’t find it again, so I’ll just go and say it: “Ronnie, I have been listening to your songs for a few years (I think about 6 years.) I love them, and can’t seem to get enough. I didn’t realize that you were blind until I searched your biography. It touched me in so many ways, that I can not explain. I love and miss you (as I’m sure we all do). Thank you for sharing your gifts and talents with the world. All the best to you and your family.

  79. Albert Orozco

    This music were words that me and my late wife could not come up with. Words from a heart.

  80. Kermit Muppet

    No one:

    Blind people:

  81. Christine Greene

  82. Scott Duff

    Mike Reid wrote this great song and Ronnie Milsap was the perfect artist to record it!! Love them both!!

  83. Iris Elizabeth

    Since 2004-2019

  84. Iris Elizabeth


  85. Iris Elizabeth

    Im being held with out my 2. kids, the re not rockys,hores

  86. Nicole Skeets

    He was @ Fire Rock Casino a couple of months Gallup NM. Show was epic!!!

  87. Brian Henegar

    One of the greatest songs ever written. (although it’s always interesting to consider the irony that you have a blind man singing the line “somebody here that I can’t see“)

  88. Bully Billy

    stranger danger..

  89. miles pitts

    ronnie was on his way back to the blind school and stay overnight with his grandmother here in morganton,n.c...he said that the house pop and crack during the night sounding like someone walking around...

  90. John Mcconnell

    True true classic song very good video 😄😄😄

  91. George Davis

    That's amazing Ronnie and Ray Charles is 100 percent blind and put out so many hits they wrote themselves

  92. MarsNeedsMartyrs

    So sad, so sad, especially when it's your story......

  93. Robin Alberti

    Was....there was a stranger in your house

  94. BloozeDaddy

    While the video might be a bit cheesy, this is clearly one of the best damn songs to ever come out of the 1980's. Ronnie's great singing and Bruce Dees' rockin guitar solo make this song a classic. This should be in the set list of every cover band in America.

  95. Vanessa Rodriguez

    Blind guy

  96. James Bukovec

    I cant remember church hymnals but i can sing along word for word with these classic country songs haha! Great stuff.

  97. Jackie Lewis

    You're one of the greatest
