the lady cam 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 Suzanne Moore
her daddy read her law
she didn't know that I was poor
livin' 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(?)
but I (that?) was Suzanne's true belief
I married her for love (?)

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 in ?
to keep the robbers out
she never stop to think it 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
