                Truckstop Honeymoon - Mardis Gras in Kansas

Intro: C  G 

C
It's Mardis gras in Kansas
                 G   
There ain't no parade

Still I put on a boa and some plastic beads
                        C
and this little tutu I made

And I walked up and down this midwest town
                      F
All I could see were cars

With working stiffs going to work as if
      G                        C
They didn't know it was Mardi Gras


F
Mardis Gras in Kansas
       C
Ain't like it is in New Orleans
            G
There's no marching bands

No Dacquiri stands
                         C
No hookers and no drag queens
      F
No tourists falling in the gutter
         C
As they put their Margaritas away
G
Mardis Gras in Kansas
                   C         G
Is just another Tuesday


C
I shoulda known something was up
                                    G
When I saw there was snow on the ground

The neighbours were digging out their driveways
                       C
And nobody else was around

Thought I made a mistake

And got the wrong date
                       F
Maybe this was all a dream

It's Mardi Gras, for sure
           G                   C         G
But it's Kansas and not New Orleans


F
Mardis Gras in Kansas
         C
It just ain't the same
             G
There's no Mardi Gras rows

No cups to go
                      C
Nobody playing Eliza Jane
         F
Still I put on a rhumba

dance a little number
       C
But I felt like a kind of a freak
      G
Coz Mardis Gras in Kansas
                            C       G
Is just another day of the week



SOLO - Play same chords as verse


    F
So next year I got a good plan babe
   C
I tell you what we gonna do
  G
We're going to start the very first ever
                   C
Kansas Mardi Gras crew
F
Gonna shut down this whole town
              C
We're gonna close off every street
               G
And then the Kansas High School Marching Band
                             C        G
are gonna learn a different beat


F
Mardis Gras in Kansas
       C
Ain't like it is in New Orleans
            G
There's no marching bands

No Dacquiri stands
                         C
No hookers and no drag queens
F
But its gonna change, it's gonna get strange
                  C
It will be like Kansas you have never seen
              G
When we get Mardis Gras in Kansas
                             C
Just like they got in New Orleans
G
Yeah, we'll have Mardis Gras in Kansas
                             C
Just like they got in New Orleans
