The Lady Came From Baltimore

Lyrics: Tim Hardin
Music: Tim Hardin

Sung by the New Riders of the Purple Sage in their early days in 1969.

Lady came from Baltimore
All she wore was lace
She didn't know that I was poor
She never saw my face

Chorus
I was there to steal her money
Take her rings and run
But I fell in love with the lady
Came 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

[chorus]

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

[chorus]

The house she lived in had a wall
To keep the robbers out
She'd never stop to think at all
That's what I might be about

[chorus]
I fell in love with the lady
Came away with none
