Bruce SpringsteenMy Oklahoma Home

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 I settled down along the Cimarron It blowed away It blowed away My Oklahoma home it blown away Well it looked so green and fair When I built my shanty there Now my Oklahoma home is 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 Got an old red muley cow And I also got a fancy mortgage on this place Well it blowed away It blowed away All the crops that I've planted blown away Well you can't grow any grain It 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 And I went to town to pick me out a wife She blowed away She blowed away My Oklahoma woman blowed 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 listenin' to the moan Of 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 I blowed away Chasin' that dust cloud up ahead Once it looked so green and fair Now it' up in the air My Oklahoma farm is over head. Well now I'm always close to home it blown away But my home Sir, is always near It's up in the atmosphere My Oklahoma home is blown away Well I'm roam'n Oklahoman But I'm always close to home I'll never get homesick until I die 'Cause no matter where I'm found My home's all arraound My Oklahoma home is in the sky It blowed away It blowed away My farm down on Cimarron Now all around the world Where ever dust is swirled There is some from my Oklahoma home Oh and it's blown away It's 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 in the sky
