Hey, California you don't know me, New York City you can't show me
Anything I haven't seen at least a hundred times before
I still love you, New Orleans, Mississippi River Queen
?Cause when it comes to lovin' you beat all I've ever seen

And I've seen a lot of ladies in my time
I've had me a few women that were fine
Ah, but I don't need no city woman messin' with my mind
So goodbye San Francisco girl, I'm leavin' you behind

And I've had some senoritas down in Mexico
I met a few potatoes up in Idaho
I've had a few peaches in Georgia and that San Antoine rose
If the good Lord made any better that you
He's the only one who knows
