Verse 1:
I was born in Kan -sas,  I was bred in Kan -sas,
And when I get mar -ried,  I'll be wed in Kan -sas.
There's a true blue gal who prom -ised she would wait,
She's a sun -flow -er from the sun -flow -er state.
 
Verse 2:
Skies are fair in Kan -sas, clouds are rare in Kan -sas,
Nev -er saw a place that could com -pare with Kan -sas.
So I'm go -in' home to keep a wed -din' date with my
Sun -flow -er from the sun -flow -er state.
 
Chorus:
She's a sun -flow -er, she's my sun -flow -er
And I know we'll nev -er part.
She's a sun -flow -er, she's my one flow -er,
She's the flow -er of my heart.
