I think I'm goin' to Kathmandu
I think it's really where I'm goin' to
Hey, if I ever get out of here
That what I'm gonna do

K-k-k-k-k-k-Kathmandu
I think it's really where I'm goin' to
Hey, if I ever get out of here
I'm goin' to Kathmandu

I got no kick against the west coast
Where all the brothers are such good hosts
I raise my whiskey glass, give 'em a toast
I'm sure they know it's true

I got no rap against southern states
Every time I been there it's been great
But now I'm leaving and I can't be late
And to myself be true

That's why I'm goin' to Kathmandu
Really, really, really goin', too
Hey if I ever get out of here
That's what I'm gonna do

Whoa, Kathmandu
Take me with you, 'cause I'm goin' with you
Now, if I ever get out of here
I'm goin' to Kathmandu

I got no quarrel with the Midwest
The folks out there have given me their best
I've lived there all my life, I've been their guest
I sure have loved it, too

I'm tired of looking at the TV news
I'm tired of drivin' hard and payin' dues
I figure, baby, I got nothin' to lose
I'm tired of bein' blue

That's why I'm goin' to Kathmandu
Up to the mountains where I'm going to
If I ever get out of here
That's what I'm gonna do

K-k-k-k-k-k-Kathmandu.
Really, really, really goin', too
If I ever get out of here
I'm goin' to Kathmandu

I ain't got nothin' 'gainst the east coast
You want some people, well they got the most
New York City's like a friendly old ghost
You seem to cruise right through

I know I'm gonna miss the USA
I guess I'll miss it every single day
But no one loves me here any way
I know my plane is due

The one that's goin' to Kathmandu
Really, really goin', too
Hey, if I ever get out of here
That's what I'm gonna do, gonna do

Kathmandu
Take me with you, 'cause I'm goin' with you
Now, if I ever get out of here
If I ever get out of here
If I ever get out of here
I'm goin' to Kathmandu

    General Comment:I can't believe no one has commented on this song. This song is one of Bob Seger's best. It totally kicks ass.
