The Lady Came From Baltimore

From: John R. Cash

Lyrics

[Intro]
The lady came from Baltimore and all she wore was lace
She didn’t know that I was poor, she never saw my place

[Chorus]
I was there to steal her money, to take her rings and run
Then I fell in love with the lady and got away with none

[Verse]
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
Her daddy said I was a thief and didn’t marry her for love
But I was Susan’s true belief, and I married her for love
I was there to steal her money, to take her rings and run
Then I fell in love with the lady and got away with none
The house she lived in had a wall to keep the robbers out
She never stopped to think at all, that that’s what I’m about

[Chorus]

[Outro]
Then I fell in love with the lady and got away with none
