The lady cam from Baltimore
All she wore was lace
She didn't know that I was poor
She never saw my face

I was sent 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 Suzanne Moore
Her daddy read her law
She didn't know that I was poor
Livin' outside the law

I was sent to steal her money
Take her rings and run
But I fell in love with the lady
Came away with none

Her daddy said I was a thief
And didn't have her love(?)
But I (that?) was Suzanne's true belief
I married her for love [?]

I was sent to steal her money
Take her rings and run
But I fell in love with the lady
Came away with none

The way she lived in?
To keep the robbers out
She never stop to think it all
That's what I'm about

I was sent to steal her money
Take her rings and run
But I fell in love with the lady
Came away with none
