Lyrics

My shirt is ragged and my pants are tore I ain't found nothin' I'm a-looking for And I wanna go back to Baltimore I miss my dinghy on the Chesapeake shore The shrimp and the shad fish I adore And I wanna go back to Baltimore Well, I left home about ten months ago ‘Cause I was tired of my status quo I said I'm sick of this dead-haired town I'm gonna cut out and have a look around That was my first mistake For a while I was living real hole in the hog Having more fun than a pedigree dog For long though, my loot ran low And I said, “oh well, I'll be a hobo” That was my second mistake

My shirt is ragged and my pants are tore I ain't found nothing I'm looking for And I want to go back to Baltimore Well I starved in Chicago and Kalamazoo Went down to Atlanta an' I starved there too I met a lot of girls but you can't make time When you're knockin'on a back door And begging for a dime I know – I tried it I looked for my fortune as hard as I could But you can't find a fortune chopping up wood So I'll admit, though I'll lose a lot of face That my own back yard was a heck of a place Baltimore – good old Baltimore (first verse) Fetch me a train Flag me down a Simmer Man, I don't care I gotta get back (fade)
