My Oklahoma Home - Bruce Springsteen

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

I wanted some place to call my own

And so I made the race and staked me out a place

And settled down along the Cimarron

It blowed away it blowed away

My Oklahoma home it blowed away

Well it looked so green and fair when I built my shanty there

But my Oklahoma home it blowed away

I planted wheat 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 the place

It blowed away it blowed away

All the crops I planted blowed away

 

Well you can't grow any grain if you ain't got any rain;

Everything except the mortgage blowed away

 

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 went to town and picked me out a wife

She blowed away she blowed away

My Oklahoma woman blowed away

Mister as I bent and kissed her she was picked up by a twister;

My Oklahoma woman blowed away

Well then I was left alone a-listenin' to the moan

Of the wind around the corners of my shack;

So I took off down the road when the south wind blowed

 

A-travelin' 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's up there in the air;

My Oklahoma farm is overhead

 

Now I'm always close to home no 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-talkin' in the air

It blowed away it blowed away

My Oklahoma home blowed away

 

But my home is always near; it's in the atmosphere

My Oklahoma home that blowed away

 

Now I'm a roamin' Oklahoman but I'm always close to home

And I'll never get homesick 'til I die

Cause no matter where I'm found my home is all around;

My Oklahoma home is in the sky

It blowed away it blowed away

My farm down upon the Cimarron

Well now all around the world wherever dust is whirled

There's some from my Oklahoma home

It blowed away it blowed away

Yeah my Oklahoma home blowed away

Yes it's up there in the sky

In that dust cloud rolling by

My Oklahoma home is blowed away

 

Well its blowed away it blowed away

My Oklahoma home blowed away

It's up there in the sky in that dust cloud rolling by

My Oklahoma home is in the sky
