​The Lady Came from Baltimore

This song is by Tim Hardin and appears…

This song has been covered by…
Lady came from Baltimore,
All she wore was lace.
She didn't know that I was poor,
She never saw my place.
I was there to steal her money,
Take her rings and run.
Then I fell in love with the lady,
Got away with none.

The lady's name was Susan Moore,
Her daddy read the law.
She didn't know that I was poor,
And lived outside the law.

Her daddy said, I was a thief
And didn't marry her for love.
I was Susan's true belief
Married her for love.

I was there to steal her money,
To take her rings and run.
Then I fell in love with the lady
Got away with none.

The house she lived in had a wall
To keep the robbers out.
She'd never stop to think at all
If that's what I'm about.

I was there to steal her money
Take her rings and run.
Then I fell in love with the lady
Got away with none.
