In "Streets of Baltimore", Gram Parsons tells a familiar tale: one half of a rural couple is seduced by the attractions of a big city...both head there and the other never hears the call.

Here, it's the man following the woman. The singer and narrator follows his love to Baltimore. She is subsumed by the city after dark as he is tied to his blue collar working life in one of the city's factories ("I ran an old machine..."). In the end, she stays --with a rather ambiguous fate-- and he returns to Tennessee.

Other than the reference to the city's former life as a manufacturing hub, you could substitute almost any urban venue for the one in this song.

This is still a haunting and sad tale, and you'll definitely want it in your "Baltimore songs" playlist...
