"Dangerous Stranger" as written by and William Nelson....
It's after midnight in the city of broken dreams
Down in the alley, Galileo meets his pack of thieves
Over the river by the old hotel
There's a big car coming like a bat out of Hell
It's the dangerous stranger in his ghostly limousine.

You get the feeling that he's running in an endless race
Driving through the city like a razor across its face
Stops on the corner in a flash of flame
He calls to me ('Hey boy, what's your name?)
He's the stranger with a danger if you ever get to play his game.

I want to go for a ride
To see what lies on the other side
I want to go for a ride tonight, tonight.

I climb right in, like a fool I say I'll go

I listen to the messages comin' through his radio
Is that my name on channel 9? They say
('You're going away for a long long time')
With the dangerous stranger from a station on the other side.

I want to go for a ride
To see what lies on the other side
I want to go for a ride tonight, tonight.

The night is black and the stars no longer burn
The radio says that we're past the point of no return
I scream at the driver but he says
('No way, you shouldn't have come if you didn't want to stay')
He's the dangerous stranger on a highway to the end of time
He's the dangerous stranger on a highway to the end of time.
