    "You Came A Long Way From St. Louis" Lyrics

    Marvin Gaye feat. Mary Wells

    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 address.

    You came a long way from St. Louis,
    You broke a lotta hearts between,
    I've seen a gang of gloomy gals
    Who were doing alright till 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 natcherly I got my doubts, you got 'em dropping by the wayside,
    A feeling I ain't gonna know.

    You came a long way from St. Louis,
    But baby, you still got a long way to go.
