C F C Well I sold the farm to take my woman where she longed to be G F C We left our kin and all our friends back there in Tennessee C F C And I bought those one way tickets she had often begged me for G C And they took us to the streets of Baltimore G F C Well her heart was filled with gladness when she saw those city lights C G She said the prettiest place on earth was Baltimore at night C F C Well a man feels proud to give his woman what she's longing for G C And I kind of like the Streets of Baltimore (the second part follows the same chord pattern) 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
