Kate Wolf - Boy From Oklahoma


CAPO: 5th Fret




C                     G
Travelling across the country
                       C
Playing on the circuit line
                   Am
Sometimes I think about a man
        D7             G7
Who was here before my time
F                  C
Named for the 28th president
       F                     G
With a Guthrie tacked to the end
        C      G
Born in Okemah shoes
         Bb        F
With the Dust Bowl blues
       G                     C
He's a friend of the working man


                      G
Now he wasn't fond of New York buildings
                        C
That tried to touch the sky
                     Am  
Or the West Virginia coal mines 
     D7           G7
That took so many lives
        F                          C
For the way they drove the migrant workers
     F           G
Back into Mexico way
    C            G
The scabs they'd run
            Bb         F
When they'd heard he'd come
        G                 C
And the bosses started to pray

              
CHORUS: 
       F            G
Just a boy from Oklahoma
      C                 Am
On an endless one-night stand
F               G    
Wandering and a-rambling
C                          Am
Drifting with the midnight sand
F                     G
Singing the blues and ballads
    C               F
And whatever came between
          Dm
Well, his heart was in the Union
        Bb                G                     C       F  G  C
But his soul was reaching out for the servant's dream


                       G
Now I was talking to a man 
                              C
M et him in a bar near Clovis town
                            Am
He said the whole place was shaking
             D7                 G7
As they were passing his songs around
    F             C
And then somebody asked him
           F                G
Where he'd be when tomorrow came
        C           G
He just said with a grin,
          Bb           F
"I put my thumb in the wind
        G                  C
And I'm off down the road again"


CHORUS:
       F            G
Just a boy from Oklahoma
      C                 Am
On an endless one-night stand
F               G    
Wandering and a-rambling
C                          Am
Drifting with the midnight sand
F                     G
Singing the blues and ballads
    C               F
And whatever came between
    Dm
His heart was in the Union
        Bb                G                     C       F  G  C
But his soul was reaching out for the servant's dream


                   G
Now you know Woody Guthrie
                          C
Is dead and buried in the ground
                     Am
Sometimes I sing his songs
         D7                        G7
I get to thinking that he's still around
           F           C
'Cause his fire is everlasting
    F              G 
His course was run true
         C              G
That old rambling man's risen
        Bb         F   
And the kingdom is his
        G                    C
But his songs are for me and you

              
CHORUS:     
       F            G
Just a boy from Oklahoma
      C                 Am
On an endless one-night stand
F               G    
Wandering and a-rambling
C                          Am
Drifting with the midnight sand
F                     G
Playing the blues and ballads
    C                  F
And whatever he came between
    Dm
His heart was in the Union
    Bb                G                     C      
His soul was reaching out for the servant's dream
