"Going Back To Kansas City" aka "Going To Kansas City" is a song recorded by Laurel Aitken in London in 1962.

"A fine UK Boogie Blues, based on the Wilbert Harrison R&B classic, with unique obligatoes and solo from a fine Jazz vibraphonist, good Trombone solo from Rico, complimented by the loping rhythm created by the piano, string bass and Ska guitar." (from the liner notes to The Pioneer Of Jamaican Music by Dave Chapple and Kenn Jones, 1999)
I'm going to Kansas City, to bring my baby back home.
I'm going to Kansas City, to bring my baby back home.
Iknow that little woman will never let me down.
Might take a place, might take a train
You know that woman, got me inflamed
I'm going, ys I'm going,
I'm going right back on the track to bring my baby back
(Vibraphone solo)
(Trombone solo)
I'm going to Kansas City, to bring my baby back home.
I'm going to Kansas City, to bring my baby back home.
I'm going right back on the track to bring my baby back
I'm going right back on the track to bring my baby back
