Baltimore

This song is by Jazmine Sullivan and appears on the compilation Nina Revisited... A Tribute to Nina Simone (2015).

This song is a cover of "Baltimore" by Nina Simone.
Beat-up little seagull on a marble stair
Tryin' to find the ocean, lookin' everywhere
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
Hooker on the corner, waiting for a train
Drunk lying on the sidewalk, sleeping in the rain
And the people hide their faces as they hide their eyes
'Cause the city's dyin' and they don't know why

Oh, Baltimore, ain't it hard just to live?
Oh, Baltimore, ain't it hard just to live?
Just to live

Get my sister Sandy and my little brother Ray
Buy a big old wagon to haul us all away
Live out in the country where the mountain's high
I'm never gonna come back here till the day I die

Oh, Baltimore, ain't it hard just to live?
Oh, Baltimore, ain't it hard just to live?
Just to live

But best believe
We're gonna make it somehow
Hard living in the city
