To get the feel of the strumming and solos etc.. you should listen
to the song, I know it was released as a B-side to the My Hero single
in the UK, I don't know about releases in America though, it is also widely available
on the internet.(kazaa, imesh etc.)

A
Winding your way down on Baker Street
A
Light in your head, and dead on your feet
     Em                     G
Well another crazy day, you drink the night away
    D
And forget about everything

A
This city's dance makes you feel so cold, it's got
A
So many people but its got no soul
        Em                   G
And its taken you so long to find out you were wrong
         D
When you thought it held everything.


Dm                            Am
You used to think that it was so easy
Dm                          Am
You used to say that it was so easy
    C              G             D
But you're trying, you're trying now

Dm                          Am
Another year and then you'd be happy
Dm                                Am
Just one more year and then you'd be happy
    C              G             A    G
But you're crying, you're crying now


--Repeat Solo with gtr2 chord pattern


A
Way down the street there's a light in his place
A
You open the door, he's got that look on his face
       Em                               G
And he asks you where you've been, you tell him who you've seen
        D
And you talk about everything


A
He's got this dream about buying some land
A
He's gonna give up the crack and the one night stands
    Em                             G
And then he'll settle down, it's a quiet little town
    D
And forget about everything


Dm                        Am
But you know he'll always keep moving
Dm                        Am
You know he's never gonna stop moving
C                   G                D
Cause he's rolling, he's the rolling stone

Dm                          Am
And when you wake up it's a new morning
Dm                        Am
The sun is shining it's a new morning
C                 G            A     D
And you're going, you're going home
