The lady cam from Baltimore
All she wore was lace
She didn't know that I was poor
She never saw my place (Johnny Cash lyric) makes more sense

I was sent to steal her money
Take her rings and run
But I fell in love with the lady
Came away with none

The lady's name was Suzanne Moore
Her daddy read her law
She didn't know that I was poor
Livin' outside the law

I was sent to steal her money
Take her rings and run
But I fell in love with the lady
Came away with none

Her daddy said I was a thief
And didn't marry her for love
But I was Suzanne's true belief (Susan in Cash's song)
I married her for love

I was sent to steal her money
Take her rings and run
But I fell in love with the lady
Came away with none

The place she lived in had a wall ( see Johnny Cash lyrics)
To keep the robbers out
She never stopped to think it all
That's what I'm about

I was sent to steal her money
Take her rings and run
But I fell in love with the lady
Came away with none
