The life that used to be and the desire to go back home.

The lights of New York City
They sparkle in my eyes.
But in my mind I’m seeing
Another place another time.
Take me back to Oklahoma
I wanna go home to Talequah
To the people and the memories
That I am so fond of.
I wanna go back to Oklahoma
To the place where I belong.
Where there’s no neon flashing
Where I can hear a country song.
The streets of Manhattan
They’re a cold and lonely place.
But back home in Talequah
There’s a smile on every face.
I left for fame and fortune
So many years ago.
But allI found was heartache
Now it’s time to go back home.
