Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
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

You circle left
I bought those one-way tickets
Left allemande, come back and promenade
And they took us to the streets of Baltimore


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

The heads square thru go four hands
You make a right hand star
The heads star left, go all the way
And pass the ocean here, recycle round
Boy walk, girl dodge, single hinge, face right
You swing her and promenade
And I kind of liked the streets of Baltimore


TAG

You swing her round again
Yes my baby walks the streets of Baltimore

Streets Of Baltimore
 
 

Well I sold the farm to take my woman
Where she used 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 her heart was filled with gladness
When she 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 kinda liked the streets of Baltimore

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

Lyrics by Tompall Glaser and Harlan Howard.
Recorded by Graham Parsons.
