The lady came 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 Susan Moore
Her daddy read her law
She didn't know that I was poor
And lived 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 [unverified]
But I [unverified] was Susan's true belief
I married her for love [unverified]

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 and had a wall
To keep the robbers out
She never stopped to think at 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
