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. (Bridge:) 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.
