GOIN' TO MISSOURI
Words and Music by James Durst
  1995 PhoeniXongs ASCAP

Goin' to Missouri, won't you come along with me?
Goin' to Missouri, won't you come along with me?
There's lots of friendly people and Missouri loves company

When you're comin' from the East an' goin' to the West
It's right there in the middle like a button on your vest
REFRAIN

Goin' to Missouri, won't you come along with me?
There's lots of friendly people and Missouri loves company

When you're startin' at the bottom and headed toward the top
Somewhere in between 'em, well, you know you oughta stop
REFRAIN

There's Kansas City on the left side and St. Louis on the right
If there's somethin' in between 'em, well, you know it's out of sight
REFRAIN

"Have you lived here all your life?" the tourist asked the vet
He just smiled and winked his eye and said, "Well, no, not yet."
REFRAIN

"How many people live here?" the tourist asked the priest
"They all do," came the answer, " 'Cept the ones that are deceased."
REFRAIN

Goin' to Missouri, won't you come along with me?
Goin' to Missouri, won't you come along with me?
There's lots of friendly people and Missouri loves company
There's lots of friendly people and Missouri loves company
Lots of friendly people and
Missouri loves company
