Lonley Stranger
Artist: Eric Clapton

G     C   Cm  G  (bis)

G      C Em   A
I must be  invisible ;
Bm    A    D   D
No one knows me.
G      C     Em           A
I have crawled down dead-end streets
F     C         G     C   Cm  G   G   C   Cm   G
On my hands and knees.

G     C  Em           A
I was born with a ragin' thirst,
Bm  A        D  D
A hunger to be free,
G        C     Em         A
But I've learned through the years.
F       C G     C   Cm  G   G   C   Cm   G
Don't encourage me.

Chorus :

G A         D    D Em
'Cause I'm a lonely stranger here,
C      B7     Em  G7
Well beyond my day.
C           A       G   Em
And I don't know what's goin' on,
Am        D7    G   C   Cm  G   G   C   Cm   G
So I'll be on my way.

G      C   Em    A
When I walk, stay behind ;
Bm       A       D  D
Don't get close to me,
G           C  Em       A
'Cause it's sure to end in tears,
F       C   G   C   Cm  G   G   C   Cm   G
So just let me be.

G         C      Em    A
Some will say that I'm no good ;
Bm A   D   D
Maybe I agree.
G      C  Em        A
Take a look then walk away.
F          C          G   C   Cm  G   G   C   Cm   G
That's all right with me.

About the artist behind Lonley Stranger:

Eric Patrick Clapton, CBE (born 30 March 1945), is a English blues-rock guitarist, singer, songwriter and composer. He is one of the most successful musicians of the 20th and 21st centuries,[1] garnering an unprecedented three inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (The Yardbirds, Cream, and solo). Often viewed by critics and fans alike as one of the greatest guitarists of all time[2], Clapton was ranked fourth in Rolling Stone Magazine's list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time"[3] and #53 on their list of the Immortals: 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.[4]

Although Clapton's musical style has varied throughout his career, it has always remained rooted in the blues. Clapton is credited as an innovator in several phases of his career, which have included blues-rock (with John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers and The Yardbirds) and psychedelic rock (with Cream). Clapton has also achieved great chart success in genres ranging from Delta blues (Me and Mr. Johnson) to pop ("Change the World") and reggae (Bob Marley's "I Shot the Sheriff"). Clapton also achieved fame with Derek and the Dominos through the hit song "Layla".
