The Streets Of Baltimore

This song is by Daniel O'Donnell and appears on the album Favourites (1990).

I sold my farm to take my woman where she longed to be
I left my kin and my 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 is Baltimore at night
A man feels proud to give his woman what she's longing for
And I tried of liked the streets of Baltimore

I got myself a factory job, I ran an old machine
I bought her this cottage in a neighborhood serene
And every night when I came home with every muscle sore
She would drag me through the streets of Baltimore

Well, I tried hard to bring her back to where she used to be
But I soon learned she loved those bright lights more than me
Well, 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
