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

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame lists this song as one of the 500 most influential 
songs of rock and roll.

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.
