My Oklahoma Home Blowed Away

	  		D                                   G                 D 
When they opened up the strip I was young and full of zip, 
                              A 
I wanted some place to call my home 
    D                         G               D 
And so I made the race, and I staked me out a place, 
                   A             D 
And I settled down along the Cimarron 

           G                              D 

It blowed away,(BLOWED AWAY!), it blowed away, (BLOWED AWAY!) 
                             A 
My Oklahoma home, it blowed away  
   D                               G               D 
It looked so green and fair when I built my shanty there, 
                A                D 
But my Oklahoma home, it blowed away 

  D                                G                 D 
I planted wheat and oats, had some chickens and some shoats, 
D                                  A 
Aimed to have some ham and eggs to feed my face 
      D                             G             D 
Got a mule to pull the plow, got an old red muley cow 
D                      A               D 
And I also got a fancy mortgage on the place 

           G                              D 
It blowed away,(BLOWED AWAY!), it blowed away, (BLOWED AWAY!) 
                                          A 
All the crops that I have planted blowed away 
    D                           G             D 
You can't grow any grain if you ainā??t got any rain; 
                     A                D 
Everything except my mortgage blowed away 

   D                                G               D   
It looked so green and fair, when I built my shanty there, 
                            A 
I figured I was all set for life 
      D                         G               D 
I put on my Sunday best with my fancy scalloped vest 
                      A             D 
And I went to town to pick me out a wife 

           G                              D 
It blowed away,(BLOWED AWAY!), it blowed away, (BLOWED AWAY!) 
                          A 
My Oklahoma woman blowed away 
       D                                 G              D 
Mister as I bent and kissed her, she was picked up by a twister; 
            A             D 
My Oklahoma woman blowed away 

     D                       G                D 
Then I was left alone just a-listenin' to the moan 
     D                             A 
ā??the wind around the corners of my shack; 
     D                      G                   D 
So I took off down the road when the south wind blowed, 
                     A            D 
A-travelin' with the wind upon my back 

           G                              D 
It blowed away, (BLOWED AWAY!), it blowed away, (BLOWED AWAY!) 
                            A 
Chasin' that dust cloud up ahead 
        D                             G                    D 
Once it looked so green and fair, now it's up there in the air; 
            A            D 
My Oklahoma farm is over head 

        D                             G              D 
Now I'm always close to home it donā??t matter where I roam, 
                          A 
For Oklahoma dust is everywhere 
         D                                   G                D 
Makes no difference where I'm walkin', I can hear my chickens squawkin' 
                     A              D 
I can hear my wife a-talkin' in the air 

           G                              D 
It blowed away,(BLOWED AWAY!), it blowed away, (BLOWED AWAY!) 
                         A 
My Oklahoma home blowed away 
       D                            G           D 
But my home is always near; it's up in the atmosphere, 
            A              D 
My Oklahoma home is blown away 

      D                          G               D 
I'm a roamin' Oklahoman, but I'm always close to home 
                                    A 
And I'll never get homesick until I die 
         D                          G            D 
Cause no matter where I'm found, my home is all around; 
            A              D 
My Oklahoma home is in the sky 

           G                              D 
It blowed away,(BLOWED AWAY!), it blowed away, (BLOWED AWAY!) 
                         A 
My farm down on the Cimarron 
    D                         G            D 
But all around the world, wherever dust is swirled, 
                     A        D 
Thereā??s some from my Oklahoma home 

           G                              D 
It blowed away,(BLOWED AWAY!), it blowed away, (BLOWED AWAY!) 
                           A 
My Oklahoma home is blown away 
          D                           G                  D 
Yeah it's up there in the sky in that dust cloud over nā?? by, 
            A              D 
My Oklahoma home is in the sky  
            A              D
