Well I saw a young man by a telephone
He was sitting alone in the rain
I said hey young man what you doing there
And he said sir I'm going insane
He said sir I'm going insane

You see I love an American beauty
But nobody here understands
Then he looked to the sky with resentment in his eyes
And said Lord why am I in Japan
Oh Lord why am I in Japan

Then he told me a story about yesterday
When he walked in the search of a friend
But nobody came to his rescue
And he came to his bitter end

He pulled me close and said they all stopped and stared
As I walked down the street all alone
Nobody knew my name
Nobody knew my name

I said young man I know where you're going
And young man I know where you've been
For I've been in this land for a lifetime it seems
And I'm never to come back again
No I'm never to come back again

So I turned and I gave him my blessing
And I left him alone in the rain
But I had to just stop and laugh at myself
Still nobody knows my name

Nobody knows my name

Still nobody knows my name
Nobody knows my name
Nobody knows my name
My name, yeah yeah
