Cimmaron River

     
 

We were kids in Oklahoma

Runniní wild young and free

We really though we could see forever

From the top of that old Black Oak tree

 

We could see forever

 

Cimmaron River river rolliní

Cimmaron River rolliní me away

In the morniní Iíll be flying

Tell my friends Iíll see Ďem another day

Oh some other day

When the sun is shininí

And times are lookiní better

Muddy river keep me rolliní

Take me home where I long to stay

 

We were raised by decent people

Spent their lives workiní with their hands

They really thought it could last forever

But whatís become of the Heartland?

 

Cimmaron River river rolliní

Cimmaron River rolliní me away

In the morniní Iíll be flying

Tell my friends Iíll see Ďem another day

Oh some other day

When the sun is shininí

And times are lookiní better

Muddy river keep me rolliní

Take me home where I long to stay

 

When the clouds are gone

When the sky is blue

When we hear no lies
And we know what's true

 

When they tell us something we can understand

The soul returns to the Heartland

 

Cimmaron River river rolliní

Cimmaron River rolliní me away

In the morniní Iíll be flying

Tell my friends Iíll see Ďem another day

 

Cimmaron River rolliní me away

We were kids in Oklahoma

Runniní wild young and free

We really though we could see forever

From the top of that old Black Oak tree

 

We could see forever

 

Cimmaron River river rolliní

Cimmaron River rolliní me away

In the morniní Iíll be flying

Tell my friends Iíll see Ďem another day

Oh some other day

When the sun is shininí

And times are lookiní better

Muddy river keep me rolliní

Take me home where I long to stay

 

We were raised by decent people

Spent their lives workiní with their hands

They really thought it could last forever

But whatís become of the Heartland?

 

Cimmaron River river rolliní

Cimmaron River rolliní me away

In the morniní Iíll be flying

Tell my friends Iíll see Ďem another day

Oh some other day

When the sun is shininí

And times are lookiní better

Muddy river keep me rolliní

Take me home where I long to stay

 

When the clouds are gone

When the sky is blue

When we hear no lies
And we know what's true

 

When they tell us something we can understand

The soul returns to the Heartland

 

Cimmaron River river rolliní

Cimmaron River rolliní me away

In the morniní Iíll be flying

Tell my friends Iíll see Ďem another day

 

Cimmaron River rolliní me away

Straight to the heart

Cimmaron River rolliní me away

Back to the heartland

Cimmaron River rolliní me away

Straight to the heart

Cimmaron River rolliní me away

Back to the heartland

Cimmaron River rolliní me away

Straight to the heart

Cimmaron River rolliní me away


Heartland
