Bobby Bare's, "Detroit City"
The Lyrics:
Last night I went to sleep in Detroit City.
From the song's overall lyrics, this is clearly a reference to Detroit, Michigan, even though its name is not "Detroit City", but merely "Detroit".

I may go out to Alberta; weather's good there in the fall.

Bobby Bare's, "Streets Of Baltimore"
The Lyrics:
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.
I bought those one-way tickets she had often begged me for.
And they took us to the streets of Baltimore>
Refers to the U.S. state of Tennessee, and to the city of Baltimore, Maryland.

Bobby Bare's, "The Streets Of Baltimore"
The Lyrics:
Her heart was filled with laughter when she saw those city lights
She said the prettiest place on earth is Baltimore at night
Well a man feels proud to give his woman what she's longing for
And I kind of liked the streets of Baltimore
Baltimore, Maryland
