STREETS OF BALTIMORE (Harlan Howard / Tompall Glaser) Tompall Glaser - 1985 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 the 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 was Baltimore at night Well a man feels proud to give his woman what she's longin' for And I kind of liked the streets of Baltimore (Instrumental Break) I got myself a factory job, I ran an old machine I bought a little cottage in a neighbourhood serene But every night when I came home with every muscle sore She would drag me through the streets of Baltimore Eventually our little home began to lose it's glow The nightlife and the wine had changed the girl I used to know And when I tried to talk to her, she'd leave and slam the door As she headed for 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 more than she loved me Now I'm headin' 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 (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - February 2013)
