Capo on 2nd

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


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


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


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


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


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

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


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


        D chord diagramDD
Now I'm always close to home it donít matter where I roam,
                          A chord diagramAA
For Oklahoma dust is everywhere
         D chord diagramDD
Makes no difference where I'm walkin', I can hear my chickens squawkin'
                     D chord diagramDD
I can hear my wife a-talkin' in the air


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


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


           D chord diagramDD
It blowed away,(BLOWED AWAY!), it blowed away, (BLOWED AWAY!)
                         A chord diagramAA
My farm down on the Cimarron
    D chord diagramDD
But all around the world, wherever dust is swirled,
                     D chord diagramDD
Thereís some from my Oklahoma home


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