MY OKLAHOMA HOME


-Bill & Agnes 'Sis' Cuningham-

When they opened up the strip
I was young and full of zip
I wanted someplace 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


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
Mister, 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
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


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)
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


Well, I'm 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 (blown 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)
My Oklahoma home is blown away
It's up there in the sky, in that dust cloud over n' by
My Oklahoma home is blown away

Well, it's blown away (blown away), blown away (blown away)
My Oklahoma home is blown away
It's up there in the sky, in that dust cloud over n' by
My Oklahoma home is the sky
