When they opened up the strip
I wanted someplace to call my home
And I staked me out a place
It blowed away

Well it looked so green and fair
Now my Oklahoma home is blown away
Well I planted wheats and oats
Aimed to have some ham and eggs to feed my face
Got an old red muley cow

It blowed away
Well you can't grow any grain
Everything except my mortgage blown away
Well it looked so green and fair
I figured I was all set for life
And I went to town to pick me out a wife
She blowed away
My Oklahoma woman blowed away
She was picked up by a twister

Of wind around the corners of my shack
When the south wind blowed
I blowed away

Once it looked so green and fair
My Oklahoma farm is over head.
Well now I'm always close to home it blown away
It's up in the atmosphere

But I'm always close to home
'Cause no matter where I'm found
My Oklahoma home is in the sky
It blowed away
My farm down on Cimarron
Where ever dust is swirled

It's blown away
Oh my Oklahoma home is blown away
In that dust cloud over n' by
