(Harlan Howard - Tompall Glaser)

I sold the farm to take my woman
Where she longed to be
We left our kin and all our friends
Back there in Tennssee.

I bought the oneway tickets
She had often begged me for
That 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.

A man feels proud to give
His woman what she's longing for
And I kind of liked
The streets of Baltimore.

I got myself a factory job
I ran an old machine
We bought a little cottage
In a neighborhood serene.

But every night when I came home
With every muscle sore
She'd drag me through
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.

--- Instrumental ---

I did my best to bring her back
To what she used to be
But soon I learned she loved
Those bright lights more than 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...
