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
