Stranger
Kris Kristofferson Lyrics


Maybe she was smilin' in the mirror
Maybe I was too, 'cause I was stoned
Singin' every sad song on the juke-box one more time
Honey, they were hittin' close to home

And I said - Maybe this'll make you think I'm crazy
Honey, don't feel lonesome if you do
But if you wanna make a young man happy one more time
I'd sure like to spend the night with you
And she said - Stranger
Shut out the light and lead me
Somewhere - shut out the shadows, too
And while we lay there, makin' believe you love me
Stranger, could I believe in you

Maybe you got all you got together
Maybe you keep rollin' like a stone
Maybe some old lonesome song'll take you by surprise
And leave you just a little more alone

Singing - Stranger
Shut out the light and lead me
Somewhere - shut out the shadows, too
And while we lay there, makin' believe you love me
Stranger, could I believe in you

Keep Singing - Stranger
Shut out the light and lead me
Somewhere - shut out the shadows, too
And while we lay there, makin' believe you love me
Stranger, could I believe in you

This man is a beautiful soul, a pure poet who tells a REAL story. I've always loved Kris, then and now. Thanks for putting his work out here.

love his singing , love his talent as a song writer

In my opinion, the GREATEST Songwriter in the 1970s! And he was a few yrs before my time. My Dad got me into his music when I began to play guitar. After 30-yrs, I'm still hooked on his music!

Never get tired of listening to his beautifull song... Can spend hours and hours enjoying his wonderful lyrics. What a beautiful soul he is.

Man! Kris was the best writer and singer...the songs he wrote; Wow. The 20th century gave us so much good music...The Highwaymen were the singers and performers of the last 100 years, Kris and Waylon, Willie and Johnny Cash.
I still will always be sad of the sensational Waylon and also Johnny gone, never to see those great singers and writers, & they even acted. In 1996 and 1995(?) I did get to see from front seat, Waylon and Cash. Those of us that are not talented see such as these extraordinary persons and almost feel they were our friends too...all that greatness but they still went to County fairs and loved the common people.
