Capo on 2nd

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 ainít 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
Ďthe 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 donít 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
Thereís 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 ní by,
            A              D
My Oklahoma home is in the sky 
            A              D
My Oklahoma home is in the sky
