Song Author John Benson Brooks og Bob Russell Lyrics by: John Benson Brooks og Bob Russell Performer: Peggy Lee Submitted by: Anonymous
[D]You came a l[A]ong way [Gdim]from St. L[D]ouis, [G]    [-]    [Gdim]    [D]    
You climbed the l[A]adder[Gdim] of succ[D]ess; [G]    [-]    [Gdim]    [D]    
I've se[A]en the town and [Gdim]country c[D]ars  
That were [Bm]parked out in f[G]ront of your [Em7]fancy [A7]ad - dr[D]ess  [Fdim].      [A7]    

You came a long way [Gdim]from St. L[D]ouis; [G]    [-]    [Gdim]    [D]    

You broke a l[A]ot of h[Gdim]earts betw[D]een. [G]    [-]    [Gdim]    [D]    
I've s[A]een a gang of [Gdim]gloomy ga[D]ls  
Who were d[Bm]oin' all ri[G]ght til you [Em7]came on [A7]the sce[D]ne. [Gdim]    [D]    

You came here [D7]from the middle W[G]est  
And certainly imp[Gm7]ressed the popul[C7]ation hereab[D]outs;
Well, baby, [D7]I got news for y[G]ou,  
I'm from Missouri, [Gm7]too, so [Em7-5]natcherly,[A7sus4] I got my do[A7]ubts.[Em7]    [-]    [G/B]    [A7]    

(N.C.) A Gdim D G - Gdim D
You got 'em droppin by the wayside,
A feelin' [A]I ain't[Gdim] gon - na k[D]now; [G]    [-]    [Gdim]    [D]    
You came a lo[A]ng way [Gdim]from St. Lo[D]uis,
But, B[Bm]aby, you st[G]ill got a [Em7]long way [A7]to g   [D]o. [G]    [-]    [Gdim]    [D]    

You came a long way from St. Louis, [-]
You climbed the ladder of success; [-]
I've seen the town and country cars
That were parked out in front of your fancy ad - dress.

You came a long way from St. Louis; [-]

You broke a lot of hearts between. [-]
I've seen a gang of gloomy gals
Who were doin' all right til you came on the scene.

You came here from the middle West
And certainly impressed the population hereabouts;
Well, baby, I got news for you,
I'm from Missouri, too, so [Em7-5]natcherly, I got my doubts. [-]

(N.C.) A Gdim D G - Gdim D
You got 'em droppin by the wayside,
A feelin' I ain't gon - na know; [-]
You came a long way from St. Louis,
But, Baby, you still got a long way to go. [-]
