Sweet Home Franklin Kansas
By Shawn LaSota
(Tune from Sweet Home Alabama - Lynyrd Skynyrd)

Well a man came down to Kansas
Looking for a place to stay
Got a house down in Franklin
Then May 4th it blew away (Such a shame)

Well I heard everyone talk about it
A lot of houses got torn down
A lot of people got on the TV
Cuz their houses were to the ground (some were never found)

Sweet Home Franklin, Kansas
Where the Skies ain't always blue.
Sweet Home Franklin, Kansas
Lord that Tornado hit you (boy it's true!)

Well we all met the Gov' nor. Hoo Hoo Hoo
And she did all she could do.
Lord I miss the town of Franklin.
And Lord I bet you do too.


Well so far Franklin is still there
Even though half the town is gone.
But there is something to be sure of
Franklin will always live on!
