Gerald Rafferty (born April 16, 1947, in Paisley, UK and died 4 January 2011) was a Scottish singer and songwriter. In his early years, Gerry Rafferty earned money by the formerly illegal practice of busking on the London Underground. Poetically, his biggest hit "Baker Street" was about busking at a tube station. After working with Billy Connolly (now better known as a comedian) in a band known as The Humblebums, he recorded a first solo album, Can I Have My Money Back.

- LyricsOut on the street I was talkin' to a man
He said there's so much of this life of mine that I don't understand
You shouldn't worry yes that ain't no crime
'Cause if you get it wrong you'll get it right next time, next time
You need direction, yeah you need a name
- LyricsNow the night train is waitin' to take me away
And I'm still feelin' guilty 'cause you're wantin' me to stay
Well I know, how I know, it's harder on you
But then you said it yourself, "There's nothin' else we could do"
When the wheels start turnin', takin' me through the night
