Oklahoma  Billy Gilman

S[D]uitcase packed with [C#m]all his things
[Bm] Car pulls up, the doo[A]rbell rings
He don't[G] want to go
He thought he'd fo[A]und his home
But with circu[D]mstances [C#m]he can't change
[Bm] Waves goodbye as they[A] pull away
From the[G] life he's known
For the last seven m[A]on[--]ths or so
She said we fo[G]un[--]d the man who looks like you
Who c[F#]rie[--]d and said he never knew
Ab[Bm]out the boy in pic[D]tures that we showed h[A]im
A ram[G]bl[--]er in his younger days
He kn[F#]ew [--]he made a few mistakes
But he sw[Bm]ore he would have b[D]een there
Had he kn[A]own it
Em F# G A D-intro
Son we think we found your dad in Oklahoma
A mi[D]llion thoughts raced thr[C#m]ough his mind
[Bm] What's his name, wh[A]at's he like and wi[G]ll he be
Anything like the m[A]an in his dreams
She could s[D]ee the questions [C#m]in his eyes
[Bm] Whispered "don't be sca[A]red my child
I'll[G] let you know, wh[A]at[--] we know

About the m[G]an[--] we found, he looks like you
And cri[F#]ed [--]and said he never knew
Ab[Bm]out the boy in pic[D]tures that we sho[A]wed him
A ra[G]mbler in his younger days He kn[F#]ew he'd made a few mistakes
But he sw[Bm]ore he would've b[D]een there Had he kn[A]own it
You always s[Em]aid that this was some[F#]thing that you wa[G]nted
Son it's t[Em]ime to m[F#]eet your D[G]ad in O[A]kl[D]ahoma

O[Em]ne [--]last turn he held his breath
'Til they re[Bm]ach[--]ed the fifth house on the left
And a[G]ll at once the tears came ro[D]lling in [A]
And [Em]as [--]they pulled into the drive
A m[Bm]an [--]was waiting there outside
Who wi[G]ped the worry from his eyes Smi[D]led and took his ha[A]nd
And he said I[G]'m[--] the man who looks like you
Who cr[F#]ied[--] because I never knew
Ab[Bm]out that boy in pict[D]ures that they sh[A]owed me
A ra[G]mb[--]ler in my younger days I k[F#]new[--] I made a few mistakes
But I s[Bm]wear I would have b[D]een there had I kn[A]own it
N[Em]ever again will you e[F#]ver be al[G]one
Son [Em]welcome [F#]to your h[G]ome in Oklahom[D]a
Repeat intro to end
