    Lyrics
    Won't you scratch my itch sweet Annie Rich
    And welcome me back to town
    Come out on your porch or I'll step into your parlor
    And I'll show you how it all went down
    Out with the truckers and the kickers and the cowboy angels

    Lyrics
    Well I sold the farm to take my woman where she longed to be
    We left our kin and all our friends back there in Tennessee
    Then I bought those one-way tickets she had often begged me for
    And they took us to the streets of Baltimore
    Well her heart was filled with gladness when she saw those city lights
    Streets of Baltimore  -  90,041 plays
