Stephen Hunley – Oklahoma lyrics

She grew up where the land is flat
Where the wind blows strong but never at her back
Seventeen when her mama died
She said the hardest thing was saying goodbye

And she cried Oklahoma
So much more we could have done
You let her die here way too young – She was way too young

A leap of faith took her to Tennessee
Where she met a boy who looked like me
She fell in love while he played the part
Then he broke her will just to break her heart

And she cried Oklahoma
So much more we could have done
You let our love die way too young – we were way too young

She waited around
Hoping he would figure it out
Hoping he would see he was wrong
But he took too long and then the moment was gone

So late one night she decided to leave
Said she’d had enough of the hills in Tennessee
Headed home where the land is flat
With a gentle breeze steady at her back

And she cried Oklahoma
So much still that’s left undone
I don’t know why I left so young – but I was way too young
