"Kansas City" as written by and Damien Jurado....
Kansas City, I fall back in tears
I know that I should have been thrilled
I can't smile knowing all the while
Everything you did you did for you

Kansas City, he asked me how I've been
I laughed and I said that I've been fine
Words that trailed off, that's how far as we got
I know that I should have been thrilled

Kansas City, I am not his son
I belong to my mother who's now gone
But always left to me that's what he has returned
I know that I should have been thrilled

Kansas City, thanks for your concern
I will learn to get by on my own
I'm an orphan by my state
Comin' by his name
I know someday I will return
I know someday I will return
I know someday I will return
