Stranger in Town
Del Shannon Lyrics


Me and my baby been on the run
So very long
Her folks sent a man to get us
They say we've done wrong
So we run, yeah we run, yeah we run
From the stranger in town

Stranger in town, he's out to get me
Stranger in town, wants me and my baby
He follows me
From town to town
And if he gets me
He'll bring me down

So we run, yeah we run, yeah we run
From the stranger in town
Woo woo

I'm not afraid of what they'll do to me
I'm just afraid they'll hurt my baby
We don't care if we run forever
Just as long as we're together

Stranger in town, I think we've lost him
Stranger in town, can't let him bring us in

Another town
One more mile
And we'll be free
For a while

And we'll run, yeah we'll run, yeah we'll run
From the stranger in town
Woo woo

Stranger in town

this song is 2 minutes and 33 seconds, and think of all the twists and turns and places it goes in that time. like a roller coaster.

Love Del Shannon! His voice got better over time. He wrote songs for Beatles and other singers and I read he was a genuine good guy. So sad to lose him the way he went.

Which song Del wrote for the Beatles?

1:11, 1:20, and 1:29 are the best notes ever!

Michael Glickman

For those wondering, the musicians are lead vocalist-rhythm guitarist Del Shannon, lead guitarist Dennis Coffey, guitarist Bill Knight, bassist Robert Kreinar, drummer Marcus Terry, 2*4 player Harry Balk, pianist-organist-clavioline player George Katsakis, and saxophonists Gregory Popoff and Michael Popoff.
