The Streets of Baltimore Lyrics

I sold the farm to take my woman
where she longed to be
We left our kin ->and all our friends
back there in Tennssee
I bought those oneway tickets
she had often begged me for
And they took us to ->the streets of Baltimore
Her heart was filled with laughter
when she saw those city lights
She said the prettiest place on earth
is Baltimore at night
Oh well, a man feels proud
to give his woman what she's longing for
And I kind of liked the streets of Baltimore
Well, I got myself a factory job,
I ran an old machine
I bought a little cottage
in a neighborhood serene
Yet every night
when I came home with every muscle sore
She would drag me through
the streets of Baltimore
Well, I did my best to
bring her back to what she used to be
But I soon learned she loved
those bright lights much more
than she loved me

Now I'm a going back on that same train
that brought me here before
While my baby walks the streets of Baltimore

Yes, my baby walks the streets of Baltimore...
