Cat Stevan’s Kathmandu

I sit beside the dark
Beneath the mire
Cold grey dusty day
The morning lake
Drinks up the sky
Kathmandu I’ll soon be seeing you
And your strange bewildering time
Will hold me down
Chop me some broken wood
We’ll start a fire
White warm light the dawn
And help me see
Old satan’s tree
Kathmandu I’ll soon be touching you
And your strange bewildering time
Will hold me down
Pass me my hat and coat
Lock up the cabin
Slow night treat me right
until I go
Be nice to know
Kathmandu I’ll soon be seeing you
And your strange bewildering time
Will keep me home

Bob Seger’s Katmandu


I think I'm going to Katmandu,
that's really, really where I'm going to.
If I ever get out of here,
that's what I'm gonna do.

K-K-K-K-K-Katmandu,
I think that's where I'm going to.
If I ever get out of here,
I'm going to Katmandu.

I got no kick against the west coast;
Warner Brothers are such good hosts.
I raise my whiskey glass and give them a toast,
I'm sure they know it's true.
I got no rap against the southern states.
Every time I've been there it's been great.
But now I'm leaving and I can't be late
and to myself be true.

That's why I'm going to Katmandu,
up to the mountains where I'm going to.
And if I ever get out of here,
that's what I'm gonna do.
K-K-K-K-K-Katmandu,
that's really, really where I'm going to,
oh, if I ever get out of here I'm going to Katmandu.

I got no quarrel with the midwest,
the folks out there have given me their best.
I lived there all my life, I've been their guest,
I sure have loved it, too.

I'm tired of looking at the TV news.
I'm tired of driving hard and paying dues.
I figure, baby, I've got nothing to lose,
I'm tired of being blue.

That's why I'm going to Katmandu,
up to the mountains where I'm going to.
If I ever get out of here,
that's what I'm gonna do.

K-K-K-K-K-Katmandu,
take me, baby, 'cause I'm going with you.
If I ever get out of here
I'm going to Katmandu.

I ain't got nothing 'gainst the east coast.
You want some people where they got the most.
And new york city's like a friendly ghost,
you seem to pass right through.

I know I'm gonna miss the USA.
I guess I'll miss it every single day.
But no one loves me here anyway.
I know my playing is through.

That's why I'm going to Katmandu,
up to the mountains where I'm going to.
If I ever get out of here,
that's what I'm gonna do.

K-K-K-K-K-Katmandu,
really, really going to,
if I ever get out of here,
if I ever get out of here,
if I ever get out of here,
I'm going to Katmandu.
