Lighthouse – Hats Off (to The Stranger) lyrics

Walkin' down by the river
Hangin' down my head
I chanced to stop for a moment
A stranger beckoned and then he said:

"Walk down the road of life, a-happy as can be
But not so happy, yeah, that you can't see
Be very careful, mm-hmm, everywhere you go
Take it very slow"

Hats off to the stranger
For tellin' me what he knows
I said, Lord, I here ya
And I'm walkin' slow
Just a singin' Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Let a little sunshine down on me
Make this feelin' grow-ow-ow-ow

Walkin' down by the river
His words warmin' up my soul
He called to me from the other side:
"There's one more thing ya gotta know, yeah"

"Nobody's perfect, boy, not me or you
It doesn't matter what you say or do
But you could be singin', yeah, a better tune
Singin' whoa-oh-oh"

------ brief instrumental break ------

"Yeah, all the things that I have said
You've probably heard them all before
But the way that you'll hear them from me
Is like you never heard them before"

Hats off to the stranger
For tellin' me what he knows
I said, Lord, I here ya
And I'm walkin' slow, yeah
Hats off to the stranger
For tellin' me what he knows
I said, Lord, I here ya
And I'm walkin' slow
Yeah, I said
Hats off to the stranger
For tellin' me what he knows
I said, Lord, I here ya
And I'm walkin' slow
Just a singin' Hallelujah, oh yeah, Hallelujah
Let a little sunshine down on me
Make this feelin' grow
A little louder
Hallelujah, sing it out loud, Hallelujah
Let a little sunshine down on me
Make this feelin' grow
