Strangered in The Night - Tom Petty

Well it was dark at midnight
There was hardly any moon
And no one really saw much
No one was really sure
But something didnt seem right
Something seemed kinda queer
The roar turned into whispers
Everyone stood t here

When the sounds fit the night
Something hiding from the light
Like strangers in the night

Well I didnt see them shotguns
I didnt see no knife
I saw this crazy black guy
With a demon in his eyes
I heard him say white man
Ive seen that silver cue
You dont remember me well
But I remember you

When the sounds fit the night
Something hiding from the light
Like strangers in the night

Well the knife just left his fingers
As the black guy took his aim
White guys head exploded
My God how much pain
And then everybody scattered
I heard some woman scream
God damn you old black bastard
Youve blown away my dreams

When the sounds fit the night
Something hiding from the light
Like strangers in the night
