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 lotta hearts between,
I've seen a gang of gloomy gals
Who were doing alright 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.
This song is from the album "Together (Bonus Track Version)".
