            John Miles – Stranger In The City

Dm   Bb   Gm   Dm

Main 1
Dm                                      Bb
Buildings tower round me like they're waiting for the kill.
Dm                               Gm
For days I haven't eaten and I really do feel ill.
Bb                                      C   Dm
If I cry for help, would you hear my call?
Dm                                    A   Gm
If I stumble now, would you let me fall?
Gm                                         Gm#  A                       Dm
Won't you give me a hand?   Try to understand,    I'm a stranger in the city.

Dm   Bb   Gm   Dm

Main 2
Stuck inside these streets it's like a human traffic jam.
People walk right over me now, they don't give a damn.
If I ask for death, would you give me a gun?
If I took your hand, would you turn and run?
Won't you pity me,
Just try to see,
I'm a stranger in the city. 

Dm   Bb   Gm   Dm

D                     G                  A                    D
All my friends were saying that the streets were paved with gold.
D                   G                    A               D
I couldn't wait to get there from the stories I'd been told.
D                        G                  A              D
There's everything that I could want, it sounded like a dream.
Bb                             Gm                         Bb      A      Dm
But my money's gone   And I've got no-one.   Friends are nowhere to be seen.

Dm   Bb   Gm   Dm

Main 3
Concrete jungle all around can't hear the birds and bees.
I've walked for miles, I can't believe what happened to the trees.
If I need someone, would you help me to get by?
If I come to you, would you give it a try?
I'm all alone,    So far from home.     I'm a stranger in the city.

Na na na na na na….
