Stranger On The Shore Lyrics

Artist: Andy Williams
Album: Stranger On The Shore

Stranger On the Shore
The Drifters
Music by Mr. Acker Bilk
Words by Robert Mellin

Peaked at # 73 in 1962
This is a vocal cover of the instrumental by Mr. Acker Bilk's #1 two months earlier.
Andy Williams also covered it at the same time to # 38.
It was used as the title tune of a British TV show.


Here I stand, watching the tide go out
So all alone and blue
Just dreaming dreams of you

I watched your ship as it sailed out to sea
Taking all my dreams
And taking all of me

The sighing of the waves
The wailing of the wind
The tears in my eyes burn
Pleading, "My love, return"

Why, oh, why must I go on like this?
Shall I just be a lonely stranger on the shore?



The sighing of the waves
The wailing of the wind
The tears in my eyes burn
Pleading, "My love, return"

Why, oh, why must I go on like this?
Shall I just be a lonely stranger on the shore?

I've always loved this song
for years I've heard many bands play it I never really knew the lyrics
What a beautiful song
Thank You for posting the lyrics

Now I'm lost,
A lonely man once more.
Lost to love tonight
A stranger on the shore.
Words you said
You don't mean anymore.
Promises you made
Are broken like before.
All the lonely days
The lonely nights as well.
Loving you this way
Has made my life a hell.
Now here I am
Left outside your door
Hoping that I'll meet
A stranger on the shore.

Shades of a golden era gone by. What an incredible voice Andy Williams was given. Mellow and rich.

The above lyrics are not the lyrics to the song,
but my own. Pity this is associated with Andy
Williams whom I now regard as a sllmeball.
