Baltimore To Washington
Words and Music by Woody Guthrie

I've gambled down in the town of Newport News 
The more I gamble, boys, the more I lose 
Baltimore to Washington
Oh Baltimore to Washington 
Oh Baltimore to Washington 
Oh Baltimore to Washington

Oh Baltimore to Washington  
I guess they got troubles, too 

Well, the hobos know me up and down the line 
They don't know the trouble on my mind 
I guess they got troubles, too 
I guess they got troubles too, boys 
I guess they got troubles, too 
I guess they got troubles too, boys 
From Baltimore to Washington 

And the police know me up and down the line 
They don't know the trouble on my hands 
I guess they got troubles, too 
I guess they got trouble too, boy 
I guess they got troubles, too 
I guess the police they've got their troubles, too 
From Baltimore to Washington 
Oh Baltimore to Washington 
Oh Baltimore to Washington 
Oh Baltimore to Washington 
I guess they've got troubles, too 

Going up north, I'm a-going north this fall 
If my luck don't change I won't be back at all 
From Baltimore to Washington 
Oh Baltimore to Washington, boys 
Oh Baltimore to Washington 
Oh Baltimore to Washington 
Well, I guess they got troubles, too
