Many roads I have traveled to see this world
I went chasing myself, I went chasing the girls
I was just 18, feeling 31
Riding thunder and lightning, a prodigal son

I left behind those Indian hills
I left behind the land of the Cherokee
God, if you're listening my only request
Is when you take me, take me home to rest

Let me die in Oklahoma
Lay me down in Tulsa town
Rest in peace in Oklahoma
Lay me down in my home town

I remember my father
How far he had come
From the farm to the city
It's a mighty long run
I remember my mother
Always there for me
She let me go
She set me free

One last time I walked that dusty road
I can't forget where I learned what I know

Let me die in Oklahoma
Lay me down in Tulsa town
Rest in peace in Oklahoma
Lay me down in my home town

My hometown never looked so good
Through time and distance I finally understood
That my heart's in Oklahoma
My heart's in Oklahoma
I'm a stranger in lonesome L.A.
A stranger in lonesome L.A.

So, God, if you're listening my only request
Is when you take me, take me home to rest

Let me die in Oklahoma
Lay me down in Tulsa town
Rest in peace in Oklahoma
Lay me down in my home town

Let me die in Oklahoma
Lay me down in Tulsa town
Rest in peace in Oklahoma
Lay me down in my home town
