You came a long way from St. Louis, you climbed the ladder of success,
I've seen the town and country cars that were parked
out in front of your fancy address.
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 naturely 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.
