Oklahoma

Billy Gilman

 DC#m
 Suitcase packed with all his things
 BmA
  Car pulls up, the doorbell rings
 G
 He don't want to go
 A
 He thought he'd found his home
 DC#m
 But with circumstances he can't change
 BmA
  Waves goodbye as they pull away
 G
 From the life he's known
 A--
 For the last seven months or so
 G--
 She said we found the man who looks like you
 F#--
 Who cried and said he never knew
 BmDA
 About the boy in pictures that we showed him
 G--
 A rambler in his younger days
 F#--
 He knew he made a few mistakes
 BmD
 But he swore he would have been there
 A
 Had he known it
Em F# G A D-intro
Son we think we found your dad in Oklahoma
 DC#m
 A million thoughts raced through his mind
 BmAG
  What's his name, what's he like and will he be
 A
 Anything like the man in his dreams
 DC#m
 She could see the questions in his eyes
 BmA
  Whispered "don't be scared my child
 GA--
 I'll let you know, what we know

 G--
 About the man we found, he looks like you
 F#--
 And cried and said he never knew
 BmDA
 About the boy in pictures that we showed him
 GF#
 A rambler in his younger days He knew he'd made a few mistakes
 BmDA
 But he swore he would've been there Had he known it
 EmF#G
 You always said that this was something that you wanted
 EmF#GAD
 Son it's time to meet your Dad in Oklahoma

 Em--
 One last turn he held his breath
 Bm--
 'Til they reached the fifth house on the left
 GDA
 And all at once the tears came rolling in  
 Em--
 And as they pulled into the drive
 Bm--
 A man was waiting there outside
 GDA
 Who wiped the worry from his eyes Smiled and took his hand
 G--
 And he said I'm the man who looks like you
 F#--
 Who cried because I never knew
 BmDA
 About that boy in pictures that they showed me
 G--F#--
 A rambler in my younger days I knew I made a few mistakes
 BmDA
 But I swear I would have been there had I known it
 EmF#G
 Never again will you ever be alone
 EmF#GD
 Son welcome to your home in Oklahoma
