Kansas City - Jim Jackson

I was first on Main Street, started down Beale 
I lookin’ for that woman they call Lucille 
She done moved to Kansas City, she done moved to Kansas City 
She done moved, baby, honey, where they don’t allow you 

The Mississippi River so long, deep and wide 
I can see my good girl standin’ on the other side 
She done moved to Kansas City, she done moved to Kansas City 
She done moved, baby, honey, where they don’t allow you 

I left off of Beale Street, started down Vance 
I was lookin’ for the woman they call Lizzie Mance 
She done moved to Kansas City, she done moved to Kansas City 
She done moved, baby, honey, where they don’t allow you 

If you don’t like my peaches, don’t shake my tree 
I ain’t after your woman, man, she’s after me 
We gone move to Kansas City, we gone move to Kansas City 
We gone move, baby, honey, where they don’t allow you 

I got one girl in Texas and two in Tennessee 
But the womens here in this town, Lord, takes on over me 
We gone move to Kansas City, I’m gone move to Kansas City 
We gone move, baby, honey, where they don’t allow you 

I’m gonna tell all you men what we musn’t do 
Don’t ever love one woman like she says she loves you 
She’ll call you honey, she’ll call you pie 
And she’ll let things get a-loose, Lord, on the sly 

Then she’ll move to Kansas City, she’ll move to Kansas City 
Then she’ll move, baby, honey, where they don’t allow you
