Ode to Kansas


Why does everyone want to leave this place
The place that has molded my face
I have lived here all my life
This is where I found my wife
This is where I really belong
Because of this place, I am strong
I was born right here
And when my end is near
This is where I want to be
So when I leave I can be happy
For my home is in this place
This place will be my base
Until the very end of my days
After everyone has gone their own ways
I will stay right here
Where I find my true cheer
Here, the place of my birth, Kansas

Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
