"Streets Of Baltimore" lyrics

Streets Of Baltimore

Well I sold the farm
And took my woman
Where she wanted to be
We left our friends
And all our kin
Back there in Tennessee

And I bought those one way tickets
She had often begged me for
And they took us to
The streets of Baltimore

Well her heart was filled with gladness
When she saw those city lights
She said the prettiest place on earth
Was Baltimore at night

Well a man feels proud
To give his woman
What she's longing for
And I kinda liked
The streets of Baltimore

Well I got myself a factory job
I ran an old machine
And I bought a little cottage
In a neighborhood serene
Yes and every night
When I came home
With every muscle sore
She'd drag me through
The streets of Baltimore

Well I tried my best
To bring her back
To what she used to be
But I soon learned
She loved those bright lights
More than she loved me

So I'm going back
On that same train
That brought me here before
While my baby walks
The streets of Baltimore
While my baby walks
The streets of Baltimore
