I sold the farm to take my woman Where she longed to be We left our kin and all our friends Back there in Tennessee

I bought those one-way 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 Then 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
