Song Meaning
Verse 1
Beat-up little seagull
On a marble stair
Tryin' to find the ocean
Lookin' everywhere
Verse 2
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
Verse 3
Hooker on the corner
Waitin' for a train
Drunk lyin' on the sidewalk
Sleepin' in the rain
Verse 4
And they hide their faces
And they hide their eyes
'Cause the city's dyin'
And they don't know why
Verse 5
Oh, Baltimore
Man, it's hard just to live
Oh, Baltimore
Man, it's hard just to live, just to live
Verse 6
Get my sister Sandy
And my little brother Ray
Buy a big old wagon
Gonna haul us all away
Verse 7
Livin' in the country
Where the mountain's high
Never comin' back here
'Til the day I die
Verse 8
Oh, Baltimore
Man, it's hard just to live
Oh, Baltimore
Man, it's hard just to live, just to live
