Repeat verse more or less the same, with riff:



I climb right in, like a fool I say I'll go
I listen to the messages comin' through his radio
Is that my name on channel nine? They say 
"You're going away for a long long time"

With the dangerous stranger from a station on the other side.

I want to go for a ride
To see what lies on the other side
I want to go for a ride tonight, tonight.

The night is black and the stars no longer burn
The radio says that we're past the point of no return
I scream at the driver but he says 
"No way, you shouldn't have come if you didn't want to stay"

He's the dangerous stranger on a highway to the end of time
He's the dangerous stranger on a highway to the end of time.
