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
