Kansas.

COME listen I'll sing you a song of Kansas,
Come listen I'll sing you a song of Kansas,
Come listen, I'll sing you a song; it'll not take long;
Come listen I'll sing you a song of Kansas.

Oh, the corn grows tall in Kansas!
Oh, the corn grows tall in Kansas!
Oh, the corn grows tall, climb the stalks to get it all,
Oh, the corn grows tall in Kansas.

Oh, the sunflowers grow huge in Kansas!
Oh, the sunflowers grow huge in Kansas!
Oh, the sunflowers grow huge, and they make a fine refuge,
Oh, the sunflowers grow huge in Kansas!

Oh, the chickens, they are fat in Kansas!
Oh, the chickens, they are fat in Kansas!
Oh, the chickens they are fat, and the preachers all know
     that,
Oh, the chickens, they are fat in Kansas!

Oh, a train moves slow in Kansas!
Oh, a train moves slow in Kansas!
Oh, a train moves slow, for it's filled with wheat, you know,
Oh, a train moves slow in Kansas!

Oh, the girls they are sweet in Kansas!
Oh, the girls they are sweet in Kansas!
Oh, the girls they are sweet, and they're mighty hard to beat;
Oh, the girls they are sweet in Kansas!

Come, all who want a home, to Kansas!
Come, all who want a home, to Kansas!
Come, all who want a home, where troubles never come,
Come, all who want a home, to Kansas!
