Gerry Rafferty - Baker Street
Tekst en muziek: Gerry Rafferty
(1978)






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



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 lad 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
In some quiet little town
And forget about everything



But you know, he’ll always keep moving
You know he’s never gonna stop moving
’Cause he’s rollin’, he’s the rollin’ stone



When you wake up it’s a new morning
The sun is shining, it’s a new morning
You’re going, you’re going home
