Baltimore Lyrics

Artist: Randy Newman
Album: Little Criminals

Beat=up little seagull
On a marble stair
Tryin' to find the ocean
Lookin' everywhere

Hard times in the city
In a hard town by the sea
Ain't nowhere to run to
There ain't nothin' here for free

Hooker on the corner
Waitin' for a train
Drunk lyin' on the sidewalk
Sleepin' in the rain

And they hide their faces
And they hide their eyes
'Cause the city's dyin'
And they don't know why

Oh Baltimore
Man it's hard just to live
Oh, Baltimore
Man, it's hard just to life, just to live

Get my sister Sandy
And my little brother Ray
Buy a big old wagon
To haul us all away

Live out in the country
Where the mountain's high
Never comin' back here
'Til the day I die

Oh, Baltimore
Man, it's hard just to live
Oh, Baltimore
Man, it's hard just to live, just to live

That is a great song! Few years ago I purchased the CD - "Generation coming'- of the jamaican reggae band "Third World" . I enjoyed their version of Baltimore when I crossed that city on my way to New York from Washington, DC. Then I heard another version by Lee Ritenour featuring Lisa Fisher. Oh God! You should listen to her voice and the the guitar of Lee!I did not get a chance to listen to the original version yet. But I really think this song is a masterpiece.

The strings on the chorus are killer. I'd like it to stay double time in the verse after the first chorus onwards, along with the circular piano figure though.....
