lyrics

When the train rolls in to Kansas City….
My gal will wear her finest frock
She’ll meet me down at Union Station…
And we’ll kiss right under that big ol’ clock

When I get back home to Kansas City
The lovin’ will never stop
We’ll head to 12th and Vine
And have a real fine time

When I get to Kansas City,
When I get to Kansas City,
When I get to Kansas City, Kansas City Mine

I want some steak and potatoes and an ice cold beer
The sound of Charlie Parker ringin’ in my ear
There may be lots of cattle but it’s no cow town,
I’m off to Kansas City, Kansas City bound!

Here comes the number 20, east from Abeline
Aint’ she the prettiest engine that you ever seen?
And Southward from Des Moines, there’s the number 9
And the number 6 from Texarkana is comin' in right on time

I see the Silver Streak Zephyr down on platform 4
The fireman’s wavin’, and she’s ready to go
And bound for New Orleeans, there’s the Southern Belle,
If you listen to that whistle, think of the stories that train could tell...

All the fellas wear their two-tones and their hats and vests
the ladies sport their heels and their Sunday best
the Paris of the Plains is know for class and style
When I get to Kansas City, gonna stay a while

When I meet my gal in Kansas City
We’ll walk together arm in arm
We’ll take a stroll down on to Main Street
To the Savoy and all of its charms
When I get back home to Kansas City
The lovin’ will keep me warm
We’ll go to 12th and Vine
And have a real fine time

When I get to Kansas City,
When Iget to Kansas City,
When I get to Kansas City, Kansas City Mine

about

The Pornadoes Seattle, Washington

The Pornadoes formed in 2011 when Midwest transplants Jason Goessl, Tom Zgonc, and Ethan Sobotta were inspired to create music that embodied the spirit of their homeland. Goessl, the curator and musical director of the project, formed the group as a means to satisfy yet another diversion. The band’s blend of country western, jazz, and bluegrass flavorings bloom with refreshing cinematic qualities. ... more
