Capo on 2nd

D G DWhen they opened up the strip I was young and full of zip,
AI wanted some place to call my home
D G DAnd so I made the race, and I staked me out a place,
A DAnd I settled down along the Cimarron
G DIt blowed away,(BLOWED AWAY!), it blowed away, (BLOWED AWAY!)
AMy Oklahoma home, it blowed away
D G DIt looked so green and fair when I built my shanty there,
A DBut my Oklahoma home, it blowed away
D G DI planted wheat and oats, had some chickens and some shoats,
D AAimed to have some ham and eggs to feed my face
D G DGot a mule to pull the plow, got an old red muley cow
D A DAnd I also got a fancy mortgage on the place
G DIt blowed away,(BLOWED AWAY!), it blowed away, (BLOWED AWAY!)
AAll the crops that I have planted blowed away
D G DYou can't grow any grain if you ain’t got any rain;
A DEverything except my mortgage blowed away
D G D It looked so green and fair, when I built my shanty there,
AI figured I was all set for life
D G DI put on my Sunday best with my fancy scalloped vest
A DAnd I went to town to pick me out a wife
G DIt blowed away,(BLOWED AWAY!), it blowed away, (BLOWED AWAY!)
AMy Oklahoma woman blowed away
D G DMister as I bent and kissed her, she was picked up by a twister;
A DMy Oklahoma woman blowed away
D G DThen I was left alone just a-listenin' to the moan
D A‘the wind around the corners of my shack;
D G DSo I took off down the road when the south wind blowed,
A DA-travelin' with the wind upon my back
G DIt blowed away,(BLOWED AWAY!), it blowed away, (BLOWED AWAY!)
AChasin' that dust cloud up ahead
D G DOnce it looked so green and fair, now it's up there in the air;
A DMy Oklahoma farm is over head
D G DNow I'm always close to home it don’t matter where I roam,
AFor Oklahoma dust is everywhere
D G DMakes no difference where I'm walkin', I can hear my chickens squawkin'
A DI can hear my wife a-talkin' in the air
G DIt blowed away,(BLOWED AWAY!), it blowed away, (BLOWED AWAY!)
AMy Oklahoma home blowed away
D G DBut my home is always near; it's up in the atmosphere,
A DMy Oklahoma home is blown away
D G DI'm a roamin' Oklahoman, but I'm always close to home
AAnd I'll never get homesick until I die
D G DCause no matter where I'm found, my home is all around;
A DMy Oklahoma home is in the sky
G DIt blowed away,(BLOWED AWAY!), it blowed away, (BLOWED AWAY!)
AMy farm down on the Cimarron
D G DBut all around the world, wherever dust is swirled,
A DThere’s some from my Oklahoma home
G DIt blowed away,(BLOWED AWAY!), it blowed away, (BLOWED AWAY!)
AMy Oklahoma home is blown away
D G DYeah it's up there in the sky in that dust cloud over n’ by,
A DMy Oklahoma home is in the sky
A DMy Oklahoma home is in the sky
