Baker Street

Gerry Rafferty

Winding your way down on Baker Street
Light in your head and dead on your feet
Well another crazy day, you’ll drink the night away
And forget about everything

This city desert makes you feel so cold
It’s got, so many people but it’s got no soul
And it’s taken you so long, to find out you were wrong
When you thought it held everything

Chorus 1
   You used to think that it was so easy
   You used to say that it was so easy
   But you’re tryin’, you’re tryin’ now
   Another year and then you’d be happy
   Just one more year and then you’d be happy
   But you’re cryin’, you’re cryin’ now


Way down the street there’s a light in his place
He opens the door, he’s got that look on his face
And he asks you where you’ve been, you tell him who you’ve seen
And you talk about anything

He’s got this dream about buyin’ some land
He’s gonna, give up the booze and the one night stands
And then he’ll settle down, it’s a quiet little town
And forget about everything

Chorus 2
   But you know he’ll always keep movin’
   You know he’s never gonna stop movin’
   ‘Cause he’s rollin’, he’s the rollin’ stone
   And when you wake up it’s a new mornin’
   The sun is shinin’, it’s a new mornin’
   But you’re going, you’re going home
