I'm goin' to Kansas City
Kansas City, here I come
I'm goin' to Kansas City
Kansas City here I come

Tell them Kansas City women
Their Kansas City daddy's comin' home
Been on this old road travelin' night and day
On this old road travelin' night and day

I'm goin' to Kansas City, Casey's callin' me
I got a friend in Denver, he wanted me to stay awhile
Got a friend in Denver, he wanted me to stay awhile
But I'm goin' to Kansas City countin' every mile

I've been hitchhikin' every day and night, yeah
Mostly hikin' every day and night
Just a few more miles
Old Casey will be in sight

When they lay me down
Beneath that cold cold ground
When they lay this old boy down
Beneath that cold cold ground

It'll be in Kansas City
Casey, my old hometown
