Oklahoma  Billy Gilman

Capo 1
[C]Suitcase packed with [C/B]all his things
[Am]Car pulls up, the door[Am/G]bell rings
He don't [F]want to go
He thought he'd [Dm]found [Dm7]his [G]home
But with [C]circumstances [C/B]he can't change
[Am]Waves goodbye as they [Am/G]pull away
From the [F]life he's known
? G
For the last seven months or so
Chorus 1:
She said we [F]found the man who looks like you
Who [Am7]cried and said he never knew
A[F]bout the boy in [G]pictures that we [C]showed him
A [F]rambler in his younger days
He [Am7]knew he made a few mistakes
But he [Dm]swore he would have [F]been there
Had he known it
Son we [F]think we found your [G]dad in Okla[C]homa
A million thoughts raced through his mind
What's his name, what's he like and will he be
Anything like the man in his dreams
She could see the questions in his eyes
Whispered 'don't be scared my child
I'll let you know, what we know
Chorus 2:
About the man we found, he looks like you
who cried and said he never knew
About the boy in pictures that we showed him
A rambler in his younger days He knew he'd made a few mistakes
But he swore he would've been there had he known it
You always said that this was something that you wanted
Son it's time to meet your Dad in Oklahoma
One last turn he held his breath
'Til they reached the fifth house on the left
And all at once the tears came rolling in
And as they pulled into the drive
A man was waiting there outside
Who wiped the worry from his eyes smiled and took his hand
Chorus 3:
And he said I'm the man who looks like you
Who cried because I never knew
About that boy in pictures that they showed me
A rambler in my younger days I knew I made a few mistakes
But I swear I would have been there had I known it
Never again will you ever be alone
Son welcome to your home in Oklahoma
