troubles   too.

Explanatory notes:   *  Indicates a "grace" note
                     p  is a pull-off
                     w  is a slur -I use SG's term of "wham" to avoid
confusion with:      s  slide from 1st to 2nd note
                     Br is a "brush" across the strings shown

Lyrics:     I've gambled all around the town of Newport News
            and the more I gamble, boys the more I lose!
            Baltimore to Washington.

            Oh Baltimore to Washington.
            Oh Baltimore to Washington.
            Baltimore to Washington,
            I guess they got troubles too.

            The hobos know me up and down the line,
            they don't know the troubles 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.
            Baltimore to Washington.

            The po-lice know me up and down the line-
            they don't know the troubles on my hands;
            I guess they got troubles too.

            I guess they got troubles too.
            I guess they got troubles too.
            I guess the po-lice they got their troubles too.
            Baltimore to Washington.

            Goin' up North I'm goin' North this Fall,
            if my luck don't change I won't be back at all.
            Baltimore to Washington.

            Oh Baltimore to Washington.
            Oh Baltimore to Washington.
            Baltimore to Washington,
            I guess they got troubles too.
