No Milk And Honey In Baltimore
Buck Owens
Album  I Wouldn't Live In New York City (LP)

Capo 1 (Recorded In G#)

G                      C         G
We left the farm twas early one morn'
                            D7
Determined we'd be back no more
    G                       C          G
My wife had an uncle that worked ever day
                          D7          G
In a nut and bolt factory up in Baltimore

                       C             G
The day we arrived to start our new life
                               D7
Our big dreams had started to soar
   G              C        G
I got me a job a carrying
                       D7       G
Breathing the smog of old Baltimore

      C                         G
That dirt it was black and the work hurt my back
                              D7
And I swore I could do it no more
    G                           C          G
Yes I thought I'd die from the sun in the sky
                         D7           G
Things would get better here in Baltimore

                          C             G
The next thing I knew my wife took the flu
                                   D7
And the doctor bills soon made us poor
    G                     C          G
And to make ends meet I started to sweep
                        D7          G
Those dirty old streets up in Baltimore

                           C           G
The smell of the bay the buildings of gray
                          D7
Was more than I bargained for
   G                C        G
If I had my way I'd go home today
                               D7           G
For there's no milk and honey here in Baltimore

                               D7           G
For there's no milk and honey here in Baltimore
