Missouri

When thoughts of Missouri run through my mind
They flee in a hurry leaving no thoughts behind
I’ve not been to Missouri, never wanted to go
Til this book from Missouri caused me to wander, wander

Out to Missouri a land middle west, lies south of my border and west to the rest
A place for lost cowboys and cornfields at best
A place I’ve never been I confess
I’ve never been to Missouri not yet

If I go to Missouri will it capture my heart?
Will I find new beginnings, could I make a new start
Would you say that Missouri is a place where things end
Would you say it’s a place to find love again
If I go to Missouri, I hope you’ll be there
when I get to Missouri we’ll wander, wander

Out to Missouri a land middle west, lies south of my border and west to the rest
A place for lost cowboys and cornfields at best
A place I’ve never been I confess
I’ve never been to Missouri not yet
So when thoughts of Missouri run through my mind and
cause me to wonder if I had the time
Would I go to Missouri and conquer the west
I know that I won’t I confess
I’ll never go to Missouri I guess
I’ll never wander, wander

Out to Missouri a land middle west,
lies south of my border and west to the rest
A place for lost cowboys and cornfields at best
A place I’ve never been I confess, a place I’ve never been not yet,
a place I’ll never go I guess
I’ve never been to Missouri,
I’ll never get to Missouri,
I’ll never go to Missouri, I guess
I’ll never wander, wander

Out to Missouri a land middle west, lies south of my border and west to the rest
A place for lost cowboys and cornfields at best
I’ll never go to Missouri I guess.
