"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 met a gang of gloomy guys
Who were doin' all right
Till you came on the scene

You came here from the middle-west
And naturally impressed
The population here-about
Listen, baby; I got news for you
I'm from Missouri too
So, naturally, 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

You had to blow the middle-west
And naturally impressed
The population here-about
Baby, I've got news for you
I'm from Missouri too
So, actually, I got my doubts

You got 'em fallin' 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

I love ya, I need ya, I want ya
But listen, baby; oh, listen, baby
You got a long way to go, yeah

I want ya, I need ya, I love ya
Listen, baby; come on back home
Oh, baby, you got a long way to go
