A Rain Dog is a dog caught in the rain, with its whole trail washed away by the water so he can't get back home. A stranded dog, who wants nothing better than to get home.

People who live outdoors, people who sleep in doorways, loners knit together by some corporeal way of sharing pain and discomfort.

A term coined by Tom Waits on his album named Rain Dogs
Inside a broken clock
Splashing the wine with all the rain dogs
Taxi, we’d rather walk
Huddle a doorway with the rain dogs
For I am a rain dog too

(from Tom Waits' Rain Dogs)

a term used for someone who is lost and cannot find his way.
For I am a rain dog, too.

A dog you see huddled in the doorways after a heavy rainfall because the rain has washed away its scent and it can not find its way back home.
Tom was just hanging around, like a raindog with no where else to go.

Rain Dogs was released in 1985, becoming the eighth in Tom Waits' expanding discography. He had reverted back to his old self a little, in songs like Blind Love and Time. His voice had smoothed over a bit, but he still grasped his dark side, presenting evil little gems like Clap Hands and Jockey Full Of Bourbon. The title track is about being a person of the street, forgoing umbrellas and taxis for the rain and freedom.
An excerpt from Rain Dogs'
Diamonds & Gold

Some men will do it for diamonds
Some men will do it for gold
Wounded but they just keep on climbing
Sleep by the side of the road
There's a hole in the ladder, a fence we can climb
Mad as a hatter, you're thin as a dime
Go out to the meadow, the hills are a-green
Sing me a rainbow, steal me a dream
