Storming Out in Oklahoma

stormin-in-oklahoma

When the sky is full of darkness, thunder's sounds rumbling in the West,

You better get ready, my friend, stormy weather in Oklahoma at its best.

The rain comes tumbling down in washtubs, lightning lighting up the sky,

Time to duck, take cover, buddy, before you light up like the fourth of July.


Refrain:

Stormy weather, I got those old Oklahoma Stormy Weather Blues,

You'd better pay attention, Yall, cause you've got everything to lose.


Stormy weather out in Oklahoma, is no pushover, easy going son of a gun,

Mamma told me I'd better hide real fast, when a twister's coming, better run.

Oklahoma don't play no favorites, son, it's what comes around, you will get,

This is the true place of an inner fortitude, where you have to show true grit.


Refrain:

Stormy weather, I got those old Oklahoma Stormy Weather Blues,

You'd better pay attention, Yall, cause you've got everything to lose.


My heart remains out in Oklahoma, although I took that old Memphis Train,

I didn't want to put up with those tornadoes all of the time, oh, what a pain!

My roots are strong in that Okie State, it's hard to shake it, where I grew up,

The best of those good old times, stay in your mind, leaving does interrupt.


Refrain:

Stormy weather, I got those old Oklahoma Stormy Weather Blues,

You'd better pay attention, Yall, cause you've got everything to lose.


When I got on that train to leave her, Oklahoma had played a trick on me,

All the way out, those four-hundred miles, a tornado behind me, I did see.

When I got off that car out in Memphis, I breathed a great big sigh of relief,

Oklahoma wanted me to stay, casting a spell, I know darn well, my belief!


Refrain"

I got those Stormy weather, old Oklahoma Stormy Weather Blues,

You'd better pay attention, Yall, cause you got everything too lose.

Got those old Oklahoma Stormy Weather Blues.
