The Streets of Baltimore 歌詞

The Streets Of Baltimore (LP版) - Nanci Griffith

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

 

Well my heart was filled with laughter

 

When I 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 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 would drag me through 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

 

Much more than she loves me

 

Much more than she loves me

Now I'm goin' 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
