Kansas City Blues

Oh the river's long, deep and wide
Gal I love is on the other side.
I'm gonna move to Kansas City,
Move to Kansas City.
I'm gonna move, pretty baby
Honey, where they don't 'low you.

Ask you people have you seen Lucille
Last time I seen her she was in Mobile.
She must have moved to Kansas City,
Moved to Kansas City.
She must have moved, pretty baby
Honey, where they don't 'low you.

Walkin' down Beale Street, turnin' down Main
Lookin' for a woman that sells cocaine
She must have moved to Kansas City,
Moved to Kansas City.
She must have moved, pretty baby
Honey, where they don't 'low you.

I jumped in the river, started to drown
Thought about my baby, and I turned around
I wanna move to Kansas City,
Move to Kansas City.
I'm gonna move, pretty baby
Honey, where they don't 'low you.

I'll tell you one thing you should never do
Never let no woman tell you she loves you;
She'll call you honey, call you pie
Go and catch a freight train on the fly
You better move to Kansas City,
Move to Kansas City.
You gotta move, baby
Honey, where they don't 'low you.
