The Stranger (ver 2) by Billy Joel

"The Stranger" from THE STRANGER (1977), written and recorded by Billy Joel.

grips in here, which may or may not be playable on guitar.*

--------------------------
VERSE I  
--------------------------
        Em7           
Well we all have a face
        Am           Em7
That we hide away forever
       Am                C
And we take them out and show ourselves
     D                B7#5(#9)
When everyone has gone
         Em7 
Some are satin some are steel
         Am                Em7
Some are silk and some are leather
            Am7             D
They're the faces of the stranger
       Bm7           || Em7 | C9 | Em7 | C9 ||
But we love to try them on 

--------------------------
VERSE II 
--------------------------
         Em7
Well, we all fall in love
       Am               Em7
But we disregard the danger
          Am7             C
Though we share so many secrets
          D                 B7#5(#9)
There are some we never tell
         Em7
Why were you so surprised
         Am            Em7
That you never saw the stranger
        Am7           D
Did you ever let your lover see
       Bm7               Em7
The stranger in yourself?

--------------------------
BRIDGE
--------------------------
Gmaj7    Gm(maj7)      D/F#
Don't be afraid to try again
D7            Gmaj7
Everyone goes south
              D/F#  Am7 D9
Every now and then, oo  hoo
Gmaj7           Gm(maj7)          D/F#
You've done it, why can't someone else?
D7/C               Bm
You should know by now
Bb+                   A6  B7#9 
You've been there yourself

--------------------------
VERSE III
--------------------------
       Em7 
Once I used to believe
       Am             Em7
I was  such a great romancer
       Am             C
Then I came home to a woman
       D                  B7#5(#9)
That I could not recognize
       Em7
When I pressed her for a reason
      Am            Em7
She refused to even answer
       Am7             D
It was then I felt the stranger
        Bm7            || Em7 | C9 | Em7 | C9 ||
Kick me right between the eyes

--------------------------
VERSE IV
--------------------------
         Em7
Well, we all fall in love
       Am               Em7
But we disregard the danger
          Am7             C
Though we share so many secrets
          D                 B7#5(#9)
There are some we never tell
         Em7
Why were you so surprised
         Am            Em7
That you never saw the stranger
        Am7           D
Did you ever let your lover see
       Bm7               Em7
The stranger in yourself?

Don't be afraid to try again
D7            Gmaj7

Every now and then, oo  hoo
Gmaj7           Gm(maj7)          D/F#
You've done it, why can't someone else?
D7/C               Bm
You should know by now
Bb+                   A6  B7#9 
You've been there yourself

VERSE IV
--------------------------
        Em7 
You may never understand
        Am             Em7
How the stranger is inspired
       Am7          C
But he isn't always evil
       D                  B7#5(#9)
And he is not always wrong
           Em7
Though you drown in good intentions
         Am               Em7 
You will never quench the fire
            Am7          D
You'll give in to your desire
         Bm7          || Em7 | C9 | Em7 | C9 || (fade out...)
When the stranger comes along.
