Dear Baltimore
Why’d you take my baby?
You know your harbor ain’t that pretty
You know I miss that boy like crazy

Dear Baltimore
My days here are growing colder
And that girl in the mirror looks older
'Cause his memory weighs down on my shoulders

What did I ever do to you?
So he’d sit there by the sea
To merit losing the only one
Who meant everything to me

Dear Baltimore
When he left Tennessee we were strong
But the roads through Virginia grew long
I guess somewhere we forgot our song

Dear Baltimore
I thought he was over your charms
But you led him straight back to your arms
So much for wishing on all those stars

What did I ever do to you?
So he’d sit there by the sea
To merit losing the only one
Who meant everything to me

What did I ever do to you?
To rob me of my love
Should have known that the chance got weaker
And straight through his blood

What did I ever do to you?
So he’d sit there by the sea
To merit losing the only one
Who meant everything to me

Dear Baltimore
Why’d you take my baby?
You know your harbor never was that pretty
You know I loved that boy like crazy

What did I do to you?
Should’ve know, I should’ve known
What did I do to you?
So he’d sit there by the sea
What did I ever do?
