Andy Williams – Stranger On The Shore lyrics

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?
