Oklahoma
By Billy Gilman

Capo 1


C                    C/B
Suitcase packed with all his things 
Am                    Am/G
Car pulls up, the doorbell rings 
         F
He don't want to go 
                Dm    Dm7 G  
He thought he'd found his home 
         C             C/B 
But with circumstances he can't change 
Am                    Am/G
Waves goodbye as they pull away 
         F
From the life he's known 
                   ?         G
For the last seven months or so 


Chorus 1:
            F         
She said we found the man who looks like you 
    Am7
Who cried and said he never knew 
 F               G                C  
About the boy in pictures that we showed him 
  F
A rambler in his younger days 
   Am7            
He knew he made a few mistakes 
       Dm                  F
But he swore he would have been there 

Had he known it 
       F                   G          C 
Son we think we found your dad in Oklahoma 



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

I would have to say that out of billys whole album this song hits me the hardest its a great song for the little guy to sing

This is a great song! I have heard Billy Gilman sing it three times. Once in person, and two others on a live concert CD. He does an even better job on this song now that his voice has changed!!! ;) Add more Billy tabs soon!!!
