Streets of Baltimore
written by Glaser/Howard
Recorded by Gram Parsons on GP

I play this with an alternate bass strum.
[ Tab from: ]
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
