Eyes Of A Stranger - Payola$
No Stranger To Danger (1982)
A&M/Universal

1.) Verse:
C#m    B6    G# min7 (Repeated)
Prominent Bass Line through Verse:
Through C# Minor:       Through G# Minor:
G|------------------|   |------------------|
D|------------------|   |------------------|
A|------2----4-4----|   |------2-4---2-2---|
E|--2-4---4---------|   |--2-4-------------|
Instead of the bass going down to the fourth
fret on the bottom string to play the root
of the G# Minor, it stays on the second fret
of the A string and sits on the minor 3rd, B.

Prominent Guiar Line through Verse:
"Clean" guitar with atmosphere effects
   C#m                       B6  G#m7
e|--4------4-4---4-4---4-4-4--4---4----(4)---if----(4)
B|--5------7p5---7p5---5h7p5--4---4----(4)---you---(4)
G|--6------6-6---6-6---4-4-4--4---4----(4)---can---(4)
D|--6------6-6---6-6---4-4-4--4---4----(6)---do----(6)
A|----------------------------2---2----(2)---it----(6)
E|--------------------------------4----(4)---reach-(7)

I think I've seen Bob Rock voice the seventh fret on the
heavy E string with the fourth fret barred and the
sixth frets on the A and D depressed, but not exclusively.

2.) Chorus:
C#m    G#m    F#     E  (Repeated)

Prominent Bass Line through Verse:
G|------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------|
A|------2----4-4--4-2--------2--------------|
E|--2-4---4--------------2-4---4---2-2--2-0-|

G|------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------|
A|------2----4-4--6-2--------2--------------|
E|--2-4---4--------------2-4---4---2-2--4-0-|

Prominent Guitar Line through Chorus:
"Clean" guitar with atmosphere effects
      C#m      G#m      F#        E
e|--4-4--4---4-4--4---6-6--6---4-4--4-------------|
B|b --5-5--5---4-4--4---7-7--7---5-5--5-------------|
G|--6-6--6---4-4--4---6-6--6---4-4--4-------------|
D|--6-6--6---6-6--6---4-4--4---2-2--2-------------|

3.) Bridge:
C#m    A      B   (Repeated)

Bass Line through Bridge
G|------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------|
A|------2----4-2-------------2----4-4--2--0---2-2-|
E|--2-4---4--------------2-4---4------------------|

Synthesiser Arranged For Guitar, Bridge section of Song

e|-12--12---11--9---7---9----9----7-----9p7-----------------|
B|-14--14---12--10--9---10---10---7-----9p7----9s7----------|
G|-13--13---11--9---8---9----9----8-------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------11s9----------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------|

Slightly driven Lead Guitar, through Bridge section
The minor on the C#m for the lead parts is just implied,
I don't bother fretting the minor thirds when doing the
driven guitars

              C#m  B A              B
e|------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------6-6--4-2-------------4-4-------------|
D|-----------6-6--4-2-------------4-4-------------|  X2
A|------2----4-4--2-0--------2----2-2-------------|
E|--2-4---4--------------2-4---4------------------|

The third time this is done, Bob Rock adds a little tritone (b5) bit:

e|------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------6-6--4-2-------------4-4-----4-------|
D|-----------6-6--4-2-------------4-4------3------|
A|------2----4-4--2-0--------2----2-2-------2-----|
E|--2-4---4--------------2-4---4------------------|

The fourth time through the bridge, they don't go back up to
the B, they just go down to the A, cut it short, and then back
to the Chorus:

  [End of Bridge-----] |[Start of Chorus-----------------------------|
e|---------------------|----------------------------------------------|
b|---------------------|----------------------------------------------|
G|-----------6-6--4-2--|----------6-6-----4---------------------------|
D|-----------6-6--4-2--|----------6-6-----4-----------4-4-----2-------|
A|------2----4-4--2-0--|-----2----4-4--6--2------2----4-4-----2-------|
E|--2-4---4------------|-2-4---4-------------2-4---4--2-2--4--0-------|

Feel free to hammer on and pull off on those riffs, such as:
e|-----------|
B|-----------|
G|-----------|
D|-----------|
A|------2----|
E|--2h4---4--|

Or alternate pick them for clarity--really depends on your setup.

4.) Vocal Notes Arranged For Guitar:
e|---------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------4-------------------------|
A|--7-----7-----7----7------------6------7-----4-----|
E|---------------------------------------------------|
    in  your  lips   I   sense   the    dan - ger

e|---------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------|
D|--6-----4----------4-------------------------------|
A|--------------7----------7------6------7------6----|
E|---------------------------------------------------|
 you've  got   the  eyes   of     a    stran - ger

Etc.

5.)  Lyrics

Can I touch you to see if you're real?
Is it nothing this something I feel?
Can my heart take the strain?
Or will it break down again?

In your lips I sense a danger
You've got the eyes of a stranger

Have I been sleeping for all these years?
Is it magic that makes you appear?
When you walked in the room I felt my heart race
But knew I'd been fooled when I looked at your face

In your lips I sense a danger
You've got the eyes of a stranger
In your lips I see a danger
You've got the eyes of a stranger

In your lips I sense a danger
You've got the eyes of a stranger
In your lips I see a danger
You've got the eyes of a stranger

* - It seems that all the lyric engines on the internet
are reporting the second verse incorrectly.  As far as I
know, what I've got here is correct.

Awesome song from an awesome band.  the_boy_of_a_thousand_shirts@yahoo.com

I'm really glad you fit both the bass and guitar tabs into this, being a bass player I believe this is the only bass tab to the song
