I think I'm going to Katmandu,
That's really, really where I'm going to.
If I ever get out of here,
That's what I'm gonna do.
K-k-k-k-k-Katmandu,
I think that's where I'm going to.
If I ever get out of here,
I'm going to Katmandu.

I got no kick against the west coast
Warner brothers are such good hosts.
I raise my whiskey glass and give them a toast,
I'm sure they know it's true.
I got no rap against the southern states.
Every time I've been there it's been great.
But now I'm leaving and I can't be late
And to myself be true.

That's why I'm going to Katmandu,
Up to the mountains where I'm going to,
And if I ever get out of here that's what I'm gonna do.
K - k - k - k - k - Katmandu,
That's really, really where I'm going to,
Oh, if I ever get out of here I'm going to Katmandu.

I got no quarrel with the Midwest,
The folks out there have given me their best.
I lived there all my life, I've been their guest,
I sure have loved it, too.
I'm tired of looking at the tv. News.
I'm tired of driving hard and paying dues.
I figure, baby, I've got nothing to lose,
I'm tired of being blue.

That's why I'm going to Katmandu,
Up to the mountains where I'm going to.
If I ever get out of here that's what I'm gonna do.
K - k - k - k - k - Katmandu,
Take me, baby, 'cause I'm going with you.
If I ever get out of here I'm going to Katmandu.

I ain't got nothing 'gainst the east coast.
You want some people where they got the most.
And New York city's like a friendly ghost,
You seem to pass right through.
I know I'm gonna miss the you. S. A.,
I guess i'll miss it every single day,
But no one loves me here anyway,
I know my playing is through.

That's why I'm going to Katmandu,
Up to the mountains where I'm going to.
If I ever get out of here,
That's what I'm gonna do.

K-k-k-k-k-Katmandu,
Really, really going to,
If I ever get out of here,
If I ever get out of here,
If I ever get out of here,
I'm going to Katmandu.
