(Robin Williams - Jerome Clark)

Hey, I was famous in Missouri
Everybody knew my name
From Kansas City to St Louis
They knew how well I played my game
Now it sure feels strange
To be in South Dakota out on the range.

Sometimes my heart feels heavy
Sometimes my head feels light
Sometimes I think back to Missouri
And other times I feel all right
But it sure feels strange
To be in South Dakota out on the range.

'Cause there ain't nobody to hear it anymore
And there ain't nobody out here keepin' score
And when I look back it seems like such a crime
To believe a woman who was lyin' all the time.

Hey, I was famous in Missouri
I sure was fast with a deal
Long before the women and the whiskey
Made my heart forget to feel
And it sure feels strange
To be in South Dakota out on the range.

Yeah, it sure feels strange
To be in South Dakota out on the range...
This song is from the album "Natural Dreams [Mercury]" and "Natural Dreams [Mercury]".
