The Streets Of Baltimore Testo

Testo The Streets Of Baltimore

Adele: nel 2016 tour in Italia
(By Harlan Howard & Tompall Glaser)

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

[1st section:]
Well my heart was filled with laughter
When I saw those city lights
She said the prettiest place on earth
Was Baltimore at night
[2nd section:]
Well a man feels proud to give his woman
What she's longing for
And I kind of like the Streets of Baltimore

I got myself a factory job,
I ran an old machine
We bought a little cottage
In a neighborhood serene
But every night when I come home
With every muscle sore
She would drag me through the Streets of Baltimore

[1st section:]
Well, I did my best to bring her back
To what she used to be
But, I soon learned she loved those bright lights
Much more than she loves me
[2nd section:]
Now I'm goin' back on that same train
That brought me here before
While my baby walks the streets of Baltimore

Yes, my baby walks the streets of Baltimore
