Kansas City - Okkervil River

The river is deep and the river is wide
And the girl that I love is on the other side
She wants to move to Kansas City
Move to Kansas City
Move, pretty baby, where the sky is so blue

She's walking down Ellum, turning down Main
Trying to find someone to sell her cocaine
She wants to move to Kansas City
Move to Kansas City
Move, pretty baby, where the sky is so blue

With a dayful of promises dead on her lips
Mark 15: 34 tucked next to her hip
She wants to move to Kansas City
Move to Kansas City
Move, pretty baby, where the sky is so blue

Well, I jumped in the water and started to drown
I thought of her walking and turned back around
I want to move to Kansas City
Move to Kansas
I want, pretty baby, where the sky is so blue

With her pair of old wings that opened just once
She can walk on two feet now, she can go where she wants
She can even move to Kansas City
Move to Kansas City
Move, pretty baby, where the sky is so blue

And I'll tell you one thing that you should never do
Never let no woman tell you she loves you
Sure she'll call you "baby", she'll look in your eye
Then she'll get on that airplane and wave bye bye bye bye bye bye
Bye bye baby, baby bye bye
Bye Bye baby, so long next time
So long next time

And if I could believe what I want to believe
I'd hold you all close and take you with me
All of you to Kansas City
You to Kansas City
And me, yeah, where the sky is so blue
