"The Flint Hills of Kansas" as written by and Nathan Bell....
Emmett net Ellie
Ellie eloped with Emmett
They were married in a white stone church
In the flint hills of Kansas
They passed the time
With bourbon and wine
To get the nerve to tell their folks
In the flint hills of Kansas

They had children one and two
Eyes of gold and blue
Emmett worked in a grain wayside
In the flint hills of Kansas
He bought an olds with an am radio
Things were rolling right along
In the flint hills of Kansas

[Chorus]
All in all they had it good
Life as solid as ironwood
In the flint hills of Kansas

It was 1967
The year of no decision
They were taking boys of drinking age
In the flint hills of Kansas
Emmett wore his uniform
Starched and buttoned down
The last time Ellie kissed him
In the flint hills of Kansas

[Chorus]
