Streets of Baltimore
recorded by Bobby Bare 
written by
Harlan Howard and Tompall Glaser

C                       F             C                   F

Well I sold the farm to take my woman where she longed to be
   G7                                    C
We left our kin and all our friends back there in Tennessee
                           F               C               F
And I bought those one way tickets she had often begged me for
    G7                             C
And they took us to the streets of Baltimore
G7                                               C
Well her heart was filled with gladness when she saw those city lights
She said the prettiest place on earth was Baltimore at night
C                         F              C                  F
Well a man feels proud to give his woman what she's longing for
      G7                          C
And I kind of like the Streets of Baltimore
                    F           C            F
Then I got myself a factory job I ran an old machine
    G7                             C
And I bought a little cottage in a neighborhood serene
                         F         C                 F
And every night when I'd come home with every muscle sore
      G7                             C
She'd drag me through the Streets of Baltimore
                      F                 C                F
Well I did my best to bring her back to what she used to be
     G7                                           C
Then I soon learned she loved those bright lights more than she loved me
                             F               C               F
Now I'm a-going back on that same train that brought me here before
      G7                           C
While my baby walks the streets of Baltimore
      G7                           C
While my baby walks the streets of Baltimore
