“Since you’re the [Dm]deleg[A]ate from Kan[Dm]sas
Will you [Dm]kindly t[A]ake the f[Dm]loor
And tell us [Dm]what is [F]Kansas th[Bb]inking
And [Bdim]what is [A7]Kansas [Dm]for?”

[Dm]Kansas is [F]for the f[A]armer
We stand beh[Dm]ind the l[F]ittle m[A]an
And we need a f[Dm]irehouse [F]in T[Bb]opeka
So [Bdim]help us [A7]if you [Dm]can”

Ahh da [Dm]da, da d[A]a, da da [Dm]daa

We gotta [Dm]irrig[F]ate our des[A]erts
We’ve got to [Dm]get some th[F]ings to gr[A]ow
And we’ve gotta t[Dm]ell this c[F]ountry about [Bb]Utah
