My Oklahoma Home


Auteur/Compositeur : Agnes Cunningham

Texte chanson

When they opened up the strip I was young and full of zip I wanted some place to call my home And so I made the race and I staked me out a place And settled down along the Cimarron It blowed away (blown away), it blowed away (blown away) My Oklahoma home, it blown away Well it looked so green and fair when I built my shanty there My Oklahoma home, it blown away Well I planted wheats and oats, got some chickens and some shoats Aimed to have some ham and eggs to feed my face Got a mule to pull the plow, I got an old red muley cow And I also got a fancy mortgage on this place Well it blowed away (blown away), it blowed away (blown away) All the crops that I've planted blown away Well you can't grow any grain if you ain't got any rain Everything except my mortgage blown away Come on! Well it looked so green and fair when I built my shanty there I figured I was all set for life I put on my Sunday best with my fancy scalloped vest Then I went to town to pick me out a wife She blowed away (blown away), she blowed away (blown away) My Oklahoma woman blown away Mr as I bent to kiss her, she was picked up by a twister My Oklahoma woman blown away Well then I was left alone just listening to the moan Of the wind around the corners of my shack So I took off down the road, yeah, when the south wind blowed I traveled with the wind upon my back I blowed away (blown away), I blowed away (blown away) Chasin' that dust cloud up ahead Well once it looked so green and fair and now it's up in the air My Oklahoma farm is over head Come on! And now I'm always close to home, it don't matter where I roam For Oklahoma dust is everywhere Makes no difference where I'm walkin', I can hear my chickens squawkin' I can hear my wife a-talking in the air It blowed away (blown away), it blowed away (blown away) Yeah my Oklahoma home is blown away But my home Sir, is always near, it's up here in the atmosphere My Oklahoma home is blown away Come on! Well I'm a roam'n Oklahoman but I'm always close to home And I'll never get homesick until I die 'Cause no matter where I'm found, my home's all around My Oklahoma home is in the sky It blowed away (blown away), it blowed away (blownd away) And my farm down on Cimarron But now all around the world wherever the dust is swirled There is some from my Oklahoma home It blowed away (blown away), it blowed away (blown away) Yeah my Oklahoma home is blown away Yeah it's up there in the sky in that dust cloud over n' by My Oklahoma home is blown away Yeah! Oh and it's blown away (blown away), it's blown away (blown away) Oh my Oklahoma home is blown away Yeah it's up there in the sky in that dust cloud over n' by My Oklahoma home is the sky Yeah!
