"Baker Street (Gerry Rafferty cover)" as written by and Gerry Rafferty....
Winding you way down to baker street
Light in your head and dead on your feet
Well another crazy day
You'll drink the night away
And forget about everything

This city's dance makes you feel so cold
Its got so many people but its got no soul
And its taken you so long
To find out you were wrong
When you thought it had everything

You used to think that it was so easy
You used to say that it was so easy
But you're trying, you're trying now

Another year and then you'll be happy
Just one more year and then you'll be happy
But you're crying you're crying now

Way down the street there's a light in his place
Opens the door
He's got that look on his face
And he asks you were you've been
You tell him who you've seen
And you talk about everything

He's got this dream about buying some land
He's gonna give up the crack and the one night stands
And then he'll settle down
In some quiet little town
And forget about everything

But you know he'll always keep moving
You know he's never gonna stop moving
'Cause he's rolling, he's the rolling stone

When you wake up its a new morning
The sun is shining its a new morning
You're going, your going' home

    General Commentpossibly the best cover ever done, its done perfectly by grohl and co. it is a great old song and the revamped way the foo's play it makes it sound just awesome.

    General Commentone of the best covers (nothing beats all along the watch tower by hendrix) to bad they didn't get someone to play sax, would have been nice to hear grohl play sax, just for kicks

    General CommentI probably only like this better than the original because I wasn't around when it was released, so I wasn't used to Gerry Rafferty's original. Great song

    General Commenti couldn't imagine anyone doing a better cover of this song. The guitar is positively refeshing and Dave's vocals give a smooth sound.
    just excellent.
