LEAVING MISSOURI

Leaving Missouri with my suitcase and my cat
I’m in no hurry, but I’m never coming back
‘Cause a girl can’t spend her time in a land
And a place that won’t let her when she can
Oh Missouri you never made a girl a home

I’ll head for Kansas or maybe Tennessee
Long as it’s a new place, well it’s all the same to me
The broken dreams are moving me on
Like a summer rainbow, I’m here and then gone
Oh Missouri you never made a girl a home

I’ll leave in the morning, or maybe go tonight
I’ll cross the river in the moonlight
One last look over my shoulder
Now I’m one day older and one day wiser to the fact
There ain’t no grace in holding back

Leaving Missouri with nothing but my name
You don’t have to worry about me but I just can’t sustain
What it takes to make it here I don’t know
If I did, I’d cancel my plans to go
Oh Missouri you never made a girl a home
