Kansas City Star (CRD)

Roger Miller

 E
Got a letter just this mornin'
 B7
It was postmarked Omaha

It was typed and neatly written
 E
Offerin' me this better job
 A
Better job at higher wages, expenses paid and a car
 B7
But I'm on TV here locally and I can't quit
 E
I'm a star!

I come on the TV a-grinnin'
 B7
Wearin' pistols and a hat
 E
It's a kiddie show and I'm a hero of the younger set
 A
I'm the number one attraction of every supermarket parking lot
 B7
I'm the king of Kansas City
 E
No thanks, Omaha. Thanks a lot!

CHORUS:
 B7
Kansas City Star, that's what I are...
(a cappella)
Yodel-ee-da-layeeee, you oughta see my car
 E
I drive a big old Cadillac with wire wheels
 B7
Got rhinestones on the spokes
I got credit down at the grocery store
 E
And my barber tells me jokes
 A
I'm the number one attraction of every supermarket parking lot
 B7
I'm the king of Kansas City
 E
No thanks, Omaha. Thanks a lot!

(REPEAT CHORUS)
(a cappella)
Stay tuned, we're gonna have a Popeye cartoon in a minute... (strum E)
