lyrics

Well, I'm stranded in St.Louis, my baby's down in San Antone
Stranded in St.Louis, my baby's down in San Antone,
I don't know why she left me but I know the little girl is gone

I'm going out on the highway, try to thumb my self a ride
I'm going out on the highway, try to thumb my self a ride
I know I'll never be happy without my baby by my side

Please get me to Kansas City, I'll make it to Texas on my own
Please get me to Kansas City, I'll make it to Texas on my own
Just thinking about my baby will lead me on to San Antone
