*from 'Little Criminals' (1977)*


Intro:

Em  G  A7  C (x2)

Verse 1:

Em              G       A7  C
 Beat-up little seagull,
            Em    G  A7  C
On a marble stair.
Em                  G     A7  C
 Tryin' to find the ocean;
              Em    G  A7  C
Lookin' every-where.

Em                 G    A7
 Hard times in the city,
     C                Em  G  A7  C
In a hard town by the sea.
Em                G      A7
 Ain't nowhere to run to,
            C                Em   G  A7  C
There ain't nothin' here for free.

Verse 2:

Em             G      A7  C
 Hooker on the corner,
              Em    G  A7  C
Waitin' for a train.
Em                  G         A7  C
 Drunk lyin' on the side-walk,
                Em   G  A7  C
Sleepin' in the rain.

Em                   G     A7  C
 And they hide their faces,
                    Em   G  A7  C
And they hide their eyes.
Em               G     A7  C
 'Cos the city's dyin',
                    Em  G  A7  C
And they don't know why.

Chorus 1:

Em   C  Dsus  Bm7            D4/C  C        Dsus  Bm7
 Oh...  Balti-more, man it's hard;  just to live.
Em   C  Dsus  Bm7            D4/C  C        Dsus  Bm7      Em
 Oh...  Balti-more, man it's hard;  just to live,  just to live.

Interlude:

Em  G  A7  C (x2)

Verse 3:

Em             G     A7  C
 Get my sister Sandy,
                      Em  G  A7  C
And my little brother Ray.
Em             G     A7
 Buy a big old wagon,
   C             Em  G  A7  C
To haul us all a-way.

Em               G       A7  C
 Live out in the country,
                     Em   G  A7  C
Where the mountain's high.
Em            G          A7  C
 Never comin' back there,
                Em  G  A7  C
'Till the day I die.

Chorus 2:

Em   C  Dsus  Bm7            D4/C  C        Dsus  Bm7
 Oh...  Balti-more, man it's hard;  just to live.
Em   C  Dsus  Bm7            D4/C  C        Dsus  Bm7      Em
 Oh...  Balti-more, man it's hard;  just to live,  just to live.

Em  G  A7  C (x4)

Chorus 3:

Em   C  Dsus  Bm7            D4/C  C        Dsus  Bm7

Em   C  Dsus  Bm7            D4/C  C        Dsus  Bm7      Em
 Oh...  Balti-more, man it's hard;  just to live,  just to live.
