The Lady Came from Baltimore

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"The Lady Came from Baltimore" (sometimes shown as "Lady Came from Baltimore") is a song written by American singer-songwriter Tim Hardin, who recorded and released it as a track on his album Tim Hardin 2 in 1967. The song was inspired by Hardin's relationship with his wife, Susan Yardley Morss, who acted under the name Susan Yardley and who came from a prosperous family in Baltimore who disapproved of the relationship; Hardin's lyrics refer to "Susan Moore".[1][2]
