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
