Raining in Baltimore Cover

One of Lukes favorite songs is Raining in Baltimore by Counting Crows from their first album August and Everything After. Counting Crows is one of his biggest influences from the start of his music career to now. Their first 3 albums and their live across the wire album are what he digs into consistently. These are albums He can always go back and listen to for inspiration for writing songs. The live across the wire albums are probably in Luke’s top 5 favorite albums.

This song is originally mainly played on piano but you can look below for the chords and tablature to play it on guitar.

 

Counting Crows — RAINING IN BALTIMORE     

capo 5th

     Am        F       G           E7

This circus is falling down on its knees

    Am         C         G     E7

The big top is crumbling down

     Am        F       G           E7

It’s raining in Baltimore fifty miles east

     Am        F       G           E7

Where you should be, no one’s around

             F         C

    I need a phone call

    I need a raincoat

    I need a big love

    I need a phone call

     Am        F       G           E7

These train conversations are passing me by

    Am         C         G     E7

And I don’t have nothing to say

     Am        F       G           E7

You get what you pay for But I just had no

     Am        F       G          

intention of living this way

             F         C

    I need a phone call

    I need a plane ride

    I need a sunburn

    I need a raincoat

    G            F

    And I get no answers

    G            F

    And I don’t get no change

    G               F         C

    It’s raining in Baltimore, baby

    G              C           F

    But everything else is the same

     Am        F       G           E7

There’s things I remember and things I forget

    Am         C         G     E7

I miss you   I guess that I should

Three thousand five hundred miles away

But what would you change if you could?

             F         C

I need a phone call   Maybe I should buy a new car

I can always hear a freight train   If I listen real hard

And I wish it was a small world

Because I’m lonely for the big towns

I’d like to hear a little guitar

I think it’s time to put the top down

I need a phone call

I need a raincoat
