Baker Street is a brilliant composition by Gerry Rafferty, as he uses "Baker Street" as the representation of Living in the City, which silently implies to the listener, that we are to put on the Cap of Sherlock Holmes and Deduce the Reality of Living within Cities, versus than being on the Land, freely...

During the song, Gerry Rafferty makes it clear that the promises of affluence and happiness by living within Cities are nothing more than Lies, and that our answers to everything rest with getting OUT of Cities and back to the Land, where we can Live Freely by providing for ourselves...

Which is...True Freedom!
