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
And 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
was Baltimore at night
Well a man feels proud to give his woman
what she's longing for
And I kind of like 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
