Goodbye Kansas City
Wilbert Harrison Lyrics


I'm going to Kansas City, Kansas City here I come
I'm going to Kansas City, Kansas City here I come
They got some crazy lil' women there
And I'm gonna get me one.

I'm gonna be standing on the corner
Of Twelfth Street and Vine
I'm gonna be standing on the corner
Of Twelfth Street and Vine
With my Kansas City baby
And a bottle of Kansas City wine.

Well I might take a train
I might take a plane, but if I have to walk
I'm going just the same
I'm going to Kansas City, Kansas City here I come
They got some crazy lil' women there
And I'm gonna get me one.

Oh but you know yeah

Now if I stay with that woman, I know I'm gonna die
Gotta find a brand new baby
That's the reason why
I'm going to Kansas City, Kansas City here I come

They got some crazy lil' women there and I'm gonna get me one
They got some crazy lil' women there and I'm gonna get me one
They got some crazy lil' women there and I'm gonna get me one

This is a later stereo remake of this song which mistakenly was included on a Relic CD in the early 90s.  The original issued version of the song on Fury 1028 is posted elsewhere on YT and has a much closer backing to "Kansas City".

Richard Smith, It's a mixed blessing..to me, it's missing the bass piano notes and rhythm of the piano part which was so integral to KC disc, but it has another guitar solo by Wild Jimmy Spruill( I love Spruill)..it's an exciting find, nevertheless! Apparently there were 2 diffeent versions of this..listen to the Fury Records posting

So was this a sequel to the other song? He went to Kansas City, stayed there a while and then went back to NYC? Ha Ha! Good sound!

Richard Smith

Better than Kansas City. Better produced even though it was Kansas City with ne lyrics. Much fuller sound.

Unbelievable, this guy ripped off his own song.

The original version of Kansas City is by Little Willie Littlefield in 1953, a.k.a K.C Loving wrote by Jerry Leiber & Mike Stoller.
