Well 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
And I bought those one way tickets she had often begged me for
And they took us to the streets of Baltimore

    Well, Baltimore was much nicer in the 50's, when I lived there as a kid. Parts of it still are but there are lots of other parts that aren't so nice. The population used to be around 950,000, now it's shrunk down to 650, 000 or so. I still love it though, as sort of a troubled child. Nice song.....Oh, and I almost forgot....HOORAY BALTIMORE RAVENS, NFL CHAMPS!!!!!!

    Maybe Gram's drug dealer was from Baltimore back in the day. ( ;

    Well, this will happen no more. The last steel mill in Baltimore is slated to close and be torn down. The Sparrows Point Mill will be consigned to the history books.

    Another fine song about Baltimore. I think the lesson of the song has nothing to do with men, women, or trust. It's all about the allure of the seductive nature of Baltimore, another Sin City...

    I wish I could type something that would properly honour the brilliance of this track.

    I suppose you could say it teaches you not to trust women and do things for them. But that's a pretty pessimistic interpretation.
