Unedited version of Free performing "The Stealer"
"The Stealer" is a song from Highway that is the fourth studio album by English rock band Free. It was recorded extremely quickly in September 1970 following the band's success at the Isle of Wight Festival but with an attitude of relaxation, the band having achieved worldwide success with their previous album Fire and Water (26 June 1970) and the single "All Right Now". It is a low-key and introspective album compared with its predecessors.
I went down to the centre of town And my feet was a burning ground She stood on the corner merrily as can be I said hey good lookin won't you come with me She said yeah I am the stealer Came to steal your love The sun was shining The world was right I said "tell me baby wha'cha doin' tonight" I'm goin' round the corner Where the music's loud I'm tired of the city Won't you come on round I said yeah! I'm the stealer Come to steal your love Steal your love oh yeah! Goin' round the corner Where the music's loud I'm tired of the city Won't you come on round I said yeah I am the stealer Come to steal your love Steal your love Steal your love Steal your love I am going to steal you love away I am going to steal you love away Steal your love
