Story

Once, when I was hitchhiking through Oklahoma on the way to Florida, I stood for hours beside an empty two-lane road in that beautiful state watching freight trains racing along one after the other in the valley below. I caught a ride, though I've always wished I had the nerve to run down to the tracks and hop a train.

Lyrics

I'll say goodbye

To you, Old Oklahoma

I can't say you didn't treat me well

But I was born and raised

Beside a man-made river

Of cold steel and cross-ties

And there in love I fell

With a lady on the move

Each night I heard her calling

And Sweet Oklahoma

I'm sure you know the rest

She moves too fast

And there's times

She treats me poorly

But the purring of her engine

Is the sound I love the best

 

So run, run my darlin'

On through another city

Hurry sweet freight train

On through another town

Don't give me the time

To find another lover

'Cause sure as I'm living

I'll die if I slow down

 

Oh, Oklahoma,

Some times I want to see you

I Ihink of the times

When it was just me and you

But you killed my daddy

Because he wouldn't leave you

And I know if I stayed there

You'd want my body, too

 

So run, run my darlin'

On through another city

Hurry sweet freight train

On through another town

Don't give me the time

To find another lover

'Cause sure as I'm living

I''ll die if I slow down
