Oklahoma Wind  Billy Joe Shaver

performed by Billy Joe Shaver and Waylon Jennings.
Verse 1:
[Em] Jesse lit us up and passed the b[Am]ottle one more time
We used to smoke and drink a lot back t[Em]hen
Thunder shook the heavens and the l[Am]ightning danced the sky
Like i ain't seen since can't remember w[Em]hen
Verse 2:
[Em] The Oklahoma kid laid dying i[Am]n a women's wing
Just another indian biting d[Em]ust
Clouds grew dark in promise but they d[Am]idn't rain a thing
The government ain't something you can t[Em]rust
Oh the [G]Oklahoma w[A]ind slides acr[D]oss the burning s[G]and
Over[G/] double crosse[A/]s mother nature m[Em]ade
Verse 3:
[Em] We picked a gig in Tulsa at the Ca[Am]ins ballroom that night
The Oklahoma kid was dead and g[Em]one
Rains still hadn't come but the cl[Am]ouds still blacked the sky
That's when i took the time to write this song about the w[Em]rong
Oh the O[G]klahoma w[A]ind slides acr[D]oss the burning s[G]and
Over double crosse[A]s mother nature [Em]made
And n[G]othing's ever c[A]ome as f[D]ar as i'm conc[G]erned
From those dead tomorrows[A] planted yesterd[Em]ay
Verse 4:(Waylon)
[Em] The white man took a chance and got his f[Am]oot hung in the door
He sure as hell is gonna have his d[Em]ay
The redman speaks his peace gain his l[Am]ong lost dignity
Washington just turned the other w[Em]ay
Verse 5:(Waylon)
[Em] Jesse spends his days in Loco H[Am]ills New Mexico
Every night he drinks his fill of b[Em]ooze
When Williams ghost is running he l[Am]ays his money down
Winning just enough to lose to lose to l[Em]ose ...
Thanks to David M. Potter ( for the lyrics.
