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 lot of hearts between.
I've seen a gang of gloomy gals
Who were doin' all right til 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 droppin by the wayside,
A feelin' I ain't gonna know;
You came a long way from St. Louis,
But, Baby, you still got a long way to go.
