John Paul Young – St. Louis lyrics
Country men, friends, lend me your ears, I'll tell you a tale of fifteen years
I'm an old man and so far along, I wanna see the city where I was born
I got the feelin' I can't stand, gotta get home to my homeland
Ain't got no money, I ain't got a cent, I can't get on that train, so help me

Show me, show me the way, (you gotta show me) show me, show me the way
(You gotta show me), show me, (the way) show me the way
(You gotta show me), show me, (the way) show me the way
(I gotta get) show me (I gotta get) show me the way
