Manhattan Kansas
Recorded by Leona Williams
Written by Joe Allen

Manhattan Kansas ain't no place to have a baby
C G7
When you got no man to give it his last name
But my folks back in Manhattan didn't want me or my baby
C G7 C
So I took my child and caught an evening train

I found a job in Denver washin' dishes in a diner
C G7
At least it buys my baby milk to drink
He once told me I was pretty but the only ring he gave me
C G7 C
Was the ring of grease that runs around the sink

G7 F
Yes I loved him sweet and gentle cause he told me that he loved me
A#7 F G7
And he made me dance before the music played
But at least I didn't beg him I'd rather wash my dishes
C G7 C
It makes me feel as if my hands are clean

At night I stand there thinkin' bout my man back home in Kansas
C G7
And how my folks just turned away ashamed
I stare down through the soap suds reach on down

And pull the drain plug
C G7 C
And watch as Manhattan drains away

Repeat #3
