Biography

Gerald Rafferty (born on April 16, 1947, in Paisley, UK, and died on 4 January 2011) was a Scottish singer-songwriter. In his early years, Rafferty earned money by the formerly illegal practice of busking on the London Underground. Poetically, his biggest hit, 1978's "Baker Street", discusses busking at a tube station and being a part of the street life. After working with Billy Connolly (now better known as a comedian) in an obscure outfit known as The Humblebums, he released his first solo album, called 'Can I Have My Money Back', in 1971. That collection of folk inspired tunes gained some notice for its deliberately 'old-timey' cover art.

    Lyrics
    Winding your way down on Baker Street
    Lite in your head, and dead on your feet
    Well another crazy day, you drink the night away
    And forget about everything
    This city desert makes you feel so cold

    Lyrics
    You know I need your love
    You've got that hold over me
    Long as I've got your love
    You know that I'll never leave
    When I wanted you to share my life

    Lyrics
    Out 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 I said 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

    Lyrics
    Now the night train is waitin' to take me away
    And I'm still feelin' guilty cause you're wanting me to stay
    Well I know, how I know, it's harder on you
    But you said it yourself, there's nothing else we could do.
    When the wheels start turnin', takin' me through the night
