You came a long way from St. Louis, you broke a lotta hearts between, I've seen a gang of gloomy gals who were doing alright till you came on the scene. You came here from the middle west, and certainly impressed the population hereabouts. Well, baby, I got news for you, I'm from Missouri too. So natcherly I got my doubts, you got `em dropping by the wayside, A feeling I ain't gonna know. You came a long way from St. Louis, but baby, you still got a long way to go.
