"You Came a Long Way from St. Louis" as written by and John B. Brooks Bob Russell....
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 guys who were doing all right till 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 dropping by the wayside, a feeling I ain't gonna know.
You came a long way from St. Louis, but baby, you still got a long way to go.
