Jackie Deshannon – Dorothy lyrics

Livin' in Kansas, a life alone
She never married, she’s hardly known
She stares out the window, far away
Looking for another windy day

Dorothy was a fool to leave
She could have stayed
She held it right in her hands
She had it made
She could have had it all for keeps
But was afraid
She could have stayed

It seems like only yesterday
But 40 years have up and slipped away
Since a lovely, black-haired girl
Was taken for her one and only whirl

Dorothy was a fool to leave
She could have stayed
She held it right in her hands
She had it made
She could have had it all for keeps
But was afraid
She could have stayed

Same old bluebird flyin' high
Over rainbows in the Kansas sky
Why, oh, why
Oh, why

I guess it only serves her right
For trading all that color
For black and white
All her sorrow
All because
There ain’t no way to stand Kansas
When you’ve been to Oz

Dorothy was a fool to leave
She could have stayed
She held it right in her hands
She had it made
She could have had it all for keeps
But was afraid
She could have stayed...
She could have stayed...
She could have stayed
