My Oklahoma Home(Live)

My Oklahoma Home(Live) - 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
