Baker Street


Baker Street
by Gerry Rafferty

Windin' 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 taking you so long
To find out you were wrong
When you thought it had 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'll be happy
Just one more year and then you'll 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 there's a quiet little town
And forget about everything

But you know he'll always keep movin'
You know he's never gonna stop movin
Cus 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 morning
You're goin'
You're goin' home.

Just luv that song!

After high school (ok, so it was several years after), i went to a place a few times up in Longview, Tx. The guy who owned it was named Baker and he called his place "Baker's Street". I'd heard about it from someone at church (a clean place ~ no alcohol, tobacco and watch yer language ~ for teens and/or young adults, depending on the night, to go & hang out on the weekends). It was big time disco back then, but it was a fun place.

I'm gonna have to go and add that to "my radio"
