Rise Up Singing chapter: Farm and Prairie, p.55

Oklahoma, where the wind comes sweeping down the plain
And the waving wheat can sure smell sweet
When the wind comes right behind the rain
Oklahoma, every night my honey lamb and I
Sit alone and talk and watch a hawk
Making lazy circles in the sky

We know we belong to the land
And the land we belong to is grand!
And when we say "Yeeow!
We're only saying "You're doing fine, Oklahoma
