Sambora, Richie - Stranger In This Town Lyrics

Hey mister can you tell me
What this world's about
It might just help me out
I used to be a dreamer
But my dreams have burned
You know how luck can turn

Sometimes it's hard to find a
Friendly face
Feel like a stranger to the human race
It's such a lonely, lonely place

I walk alone in the darkness of the city
Got no place to call home
I might be dyin'
But you can't hear a sound
'Cause midnight rain is comin' down
I'm just a stranger, a stranger
In this town

Everybody loves a winner
Till the winners lose
And then it's front page news
Nobody loves a loser
When you're down and out
You know there ain't no doubt

I'm just a victim of circumstance
Please mister give me a helping hand
Brother won't you understand

I walk alone in the darkness of the city
Got no place to call home
I might be dyin'
But you can't hear a sound
Midnight rain is comin' down
I'm just a stranger, a stranger
In this town
I mean no danger, I'm a stranger
In this town

I'm just a victim of circumstance
Please mister give me a helping hand
Brother won't you understand

I walk alone in the darkness of the city
Got no place to call home
I might be dyin'
But you can't hear a sound
'Cause midnight pain is comin' down
Midnight pain is coming down
I'm just a stranger, I'm a stranger
In this town
I mean no danger, I'm a stranger,
I'm a stranger
I'm a stranger in this town...
I mean no danger, I'm a stranger...

I'm just a stranger in this town

  29. Falcon 4Life




    Stranger in this town and Undiscovered soul are ones of the top albums ever , and dont even let me start what a sound this man has on guitar...and voice and...

    Falcon 4Life

    @mikrosound Listen to his newest solo album from 2012, Aftermath of the Lowdown. He does guitar work on that album that he hasn't been able to do in Bon Jovi for 10 years. Very well written album and a staple Sambora sound!

    Undiscovered Soul was a bit too bluesy/acoustic for my taste. However, I loved the ballads, All that really Matters and In it for Love. I also liked Hard times come Easy.

  30. Małgorzata Woroch

    swietny videoclip oraz super piosenka oraz wspanialy richie sambora

  31. emre barış

    I didn't know richie sambora's voice was that good.


    I hope that he starts writing again for a new record soon..........

  33. Hunks Appreciated

    The hottest and most talented guy in Bon Jovi.

    Paloma Costa


  34. bion asnanto

    back then when all of my friends who learned guitar together with me wants to be like vai, malmsteen or hammet, i want to play like Richie Sambora! he's the best!

  35. Leona Henry

    I always knew he was a fabulous guitar player, but did not know what a set of vocals this man possessed. He has such an outstanding sound. He can definitely stand on his own merits. He always took a back seat to Bon Jovi, but I sure wish he had done more with his immense talent. So nice!!

  36. Salvatore Lunanova

    Great song !

  37. Cathy Glitsch

    simply beautiful and amazing voice guitar player

  38. María Calvo

    He is wonderful.

  39. dandantheminiman

    I am ashamed to say today is the first time I’ve heard this song.. I feel like I’ve missed out without having heard this before. It’s such a beautiful song, this needs more air time on the radio, doesn’t matter how old it is.

  40. Victor Harris

    This was/still is such a good song!

  41. c4p0n31

    Richie is Jon's equal in all things but one --- luck. His endless stream of bad luck is why he should have stayed with the group.

    I wish more people knew this song because it's so damn beautiful and brilliant. He deserves more recognition for his vocal talent as well as his instrumental. He's just brilliant. If I ever met him, I wouldn't know how to express this because he's just wonderful.
