Oklahoma Hills

This song is by Ramblin' Jack Elliott and appears on the Compilation album The Lost Topic Tapes: Isle Of Wight 1957 (2004).

This song is a cover of "Oklahoma Hills" by Woody Guthrie.
Many months have come and gone
Since I wandered from my home
In the Oklahoma hills where I was born
Many a page of life has turned
Many a lesson I have learned
Well, I feel like in those hills I still belong

Way down yonder in the Indian Nation
Ridin' my pony on the reservation
In the Oklahoma hills where I was born
Way down yonder in the Indian Nation
A cowboy's life is my occupation
In the Oklahoma hills where I was born

Now as I sit here today, many miles I am away
From a place I rode my pony through the draw
Where the oak and blackjack trees
Kiss that playful prairie breeze
In the Oklahoma hills where I was born

Way down yonder in the Indian Nation
Ridin' my pony on the reservation
In the Oklahoma hills where I was born
Way down yonder in the Indian Nation
Ridin' my pony on the reservation
In the Oklahoma hills where I was born

Now as I turn life a page
To that land of the great Osage
In the Oklahoma hills where I was born
Where the black oil rolls and flows
Where the snow-white cotton grows
In the Oklahoma hills where I was born

Way down yonder in the Indian Nation
Ridin' my pony on the reservation
In the Oklahoma hills where I was born
Way down yonder in the Indian Nation
A cowboy's life is my occupation
In the Oklahoma hills where I was born
