Streets Of Baltimore Lyrics

The Flying Burrito Brothers – Streets Of Baltimore Lyrics

Well, 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

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

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
And I bought a little cottage
In a neighborhood serene

And every night when I'd come home
With every muscle sore
She'd drag me through the streets of Baltimore

Well, I did my best to bring her back
To what she used to be
Then I soon learned she loved those bright lights
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
While my baby walks the streets of Baltimore
