Thread Name: Origins: Baltimore Fire..a 'new' old verse....
Subject: Baltimore Fire..a 'new' old verse....
Here is a verse I got several years ago to 'The Baltimore Fire', from Gene Anderson (lives in N. Carolina, I think) he said he had seen it in a ragged little songbook owned by some well known country music singer (I cant remember!!!!)It seems to me it has an authentic ring to it...and lord knows that song needs some more verses!!! "Baltimore Fire" is in the database....

"The awful news did spread across the wire

"Of another sad catastrophe so dire,

"That Baltimore City is afire,

"And sinking 'neath the foe's relentless hand."

If anyone has any further info, or more verses, speak up!!
