The Kindness of Strangers  Radney Foster

Intro: Bm - A - D (2x)
He was [Bm]nervous and [A]excited when he walke[D]d in
She [Bm]poured him a drink, and th[A]ey discussed the pric[G]e of sin
She'd[Bm] unbuttoned just t[A]wo buttons
Put her[D] hand upon h[G]is thigh
When that [Bm]grown man started [A]crying, she [D]did not blink and [G]eye
She just [Bm]held him in her [A]arms like a little [D]child
She [Bm]laid there and listened to him [A]talk for a long, long [G]while
He rambled [Bm]on about the [A]lawyers, and the [D]family torn in [G]two
He said [Bm]nights like this I'm [A]empty
I'm just [D]trying to get [G]through
The kindness of [D]strangers
Tears of [A]angels
Wondering [Bm]how to let go
When the [G]heartaches all you trust
The quite of [D]Cathedrals
To cut through the [A]evil
Some [Bm]little ray of hope when you [G]watch love turn to rust
When your [D/F#]soul is [Em]bleeding
What you really [A]need is
D/F# - G (x3)
The kindness of strangers
:Repeat Intro:
He [Bm]put on his coat as he [A]headed for the [D]door
She [Bm]said, "You never [A]got what you paid me [G]for"
She said, "[Bm]I don't need to keep this [A]money"
And he [D]said, "Yeah, you [G]do"
She said, [Bm]"I don't pray [A]much. But [D]honey I'll pray for [G]you"
And the kindness of [D]strangers
The kisses of [A]Angles
And letting [Bm]go even though the [G]heartaches all you trust
The quite of [D]cathedrals
And the wings of [A]eagles
To carry [Bm]you some hope even [G]though loves turned to rust
When you [D/F#]really [Em]need it
Cause your soul is [A]bleeding
The kindness of [D/F#]strangers
 :Outro G - D/F# - G - D/F# - G -Bm - G
