raining in baltimore lyrics – counting crows

this circus is falling down on its knees
the big top is crumbling down
it’s raining in baltimore fifty miles east
where you should be, no one’s around
i need a phone call
i need a raincoat
i need a big love
i need a phone call
these train conversations are p*ssing me by
and i don’t have nothing to say
you get what you paid for
but i just had no intention of living this way
i need a phone call
i need a plane ride
i need a sunburn
i need a raincoat
and i get no answers
and i don’t get no change
it’s raining in baltimore, baby
but everything else is the same
there’s things i remember and things i forget
i miss you i guess that i should
three thousand five hundred miles away
but what would you change if you could?
i need a phone call
maybe i should buy a new car
i can always hear a freight train, baby, if i listen real hard
and i wish, i wish it was a small world
’cause i’m lonely for the big towns
i’d like to hear a little guitar
i guess it’s time to put the top down
i need a phone call
i need a raincoat
i really need a raincoat
i really, really need a raincoat
i really, really, really need a raincoat
i really need a raincoat
