I play this with a capo on the 3rd position.  Chord names refer to the open chord shapes. 
 

A
I'm goin' to Kansas City, Kansas City here I come,
             D                                A
I'm goin' to Kansas City, Kansas City, here I come.
A             E7
They got some pretty little women there,
                      A 
And I'm gonna get me one.

A
I'm gonna be standin' on the corner, Twelfth Street and Vine.
             D                       A
I'm gonna be standin' on the corner, Twelfth Street and Vine.
A       E7
With my Kansas City baby,
      D                     A    
And a bottle of Kansas City wine.

A
Well I might take a train, I might take a plane, but if I have to walk
                                             D
I'm going just the same, I'm going to Kansas City
                   A
Kansas City here I come
              E7                                            A
They got some crazy little women there and I'm gonna get me one.

[Solo]

A
If I stay with that woman I know I'm going to die
                                                       
Have to find a friendly baby that's the reason why
             D                                A
I'm goin' to Kansas City, Kansas City, here I come.
A             E7
They got some crazy little women there,
    D                A   
And I'm gonna get me some.

Some lyric tweaks based on version at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f8tZO97uhyE:

1st verse, 3rd line is "They got some crazy little women there"

Last verse, 2nd line I hear as "Got to find a brand new baby, that's the reason why", not "Have to find a friendly baby that's the reason why"
