Verse 1:
     Bb             C       
On a cold and windy morning,
         Bb            C
Said goodbye to my old friends
          Bb                 C
They were hangin' around the corner,
          Dm               Am
They were stayin' till the end
         F
till the end


Verse 2:
       Bb            C
On the other side of midnight,
      Bb                     C
I was lookin' for a place to stay
    Bb                   C
And one thing's sure for certain,
        Dm                Am
I ain't never goin' back again
   F
no no
Dm   C            F
      The stranger

Verse 3:
    Bb                     C
The streetlights looked so pretty 
        Bb            C
As they spread into a town
       Bb                 C
I was lookin' for another sundown
       Dm                          Am
And my head was spinning round and round
      F
All around

Chorus:
F                                    G7 
Lookin' through the eyes of a stranger
                    C             F
Lookin' through the eyes of danger
                              G7
Lookin' at the all-night dancer
C                           Fmaj7
Never takin' all the chances
     G7    F
Of a Stranger

Verse 4:
     Bb              C
As I walked into the main street, 
      Bb               C
saw a crowd across the square
      Bb             C
And I heard a guitar playin' 
      Dm               Am
and I saw you standing there
         F
standing there


Chorus: 
F                                    G7 
Lookin' through the eyes of a stranger
                    C             F
Lookin' through the eyes of danger
                              G7
Lookin' at the all-night dancer
C                           Fmaj7
Never takin' all the chances
     G7    F
Of a Stranger

Verse 5:
    Bb              C
Distant bells they started ringing, 
     Bb               C
somewhere far off in the night
     Bb             C
And the place was full of loneliness 
     Dm               Am
that disappeared from sight
    F
Oh Oh

Dm   C  F

Chorus: 
F                                    G7 
Lookin' through the eyes of a stranger

Lookin' through the eyes of danger
                              G7
Lookin' at the all-night dancer
C                           Fmaj7
Never takin' all the chances
           G7
Of a Stranger

Lookin' through the eyes of a stranger

I ain't never goin' back
