OKLAHOMA NIGHTS

From the Texas Water album TEXAS RAIN

Peggy sings this one.

OKLAHOMA NIGHTS

Carefully, the boats are tied up to the shore
And the fish are jumping in the night, in the night
And the wind has found a reed and she’s blowing it right.

Now the water is a waving’ and the fish are a jumping’
You know I’ve been saving and I think I’ve found something
to spend it all on a warm Oklahoma Night
If the lake was a river, I’d be floating upstream
Sitting here a singing while the children dream
And I’m singing it all on a warm Oklahoma Night

Carefully, the boats are tied up to the shore
And the fish are jumpin’ in the night, in the night
And the wind has found a reed and she’s blowing it right.

Now, the guards are a guardin’ and the lights are a lightin’
And the cases will harden as the tensions will heighten
And I’m catching it all on a warm Oklahoma Night
They’re lockin’ up the minnows and they’re lockin’ up the bars
But they can’t stop a country boy from talkin’ to the stats
And I’m sayin’ it all on a warm Oklahoma Night

The water is splashing almost to my feet
And the fish are dancing in the light, in the light
And the wind has found a reed and she’s blowing it right

Now, the skunk and the opossum are a lookin’ for food
They can tell the fella singin’ is a friendly dude
And I’m singin’ it all on a warm Oklahoma Night
Well, the boats are arrivin’ and the fish are all dead
Just sittin’ here a singin’ and shakin’ my head
Shakin’ it off on a warm Oklahoma Night

Carefully, the boats are tied up to the shore
And the fish are jumpin’ in the night, in the night
And the wind has found a reed and she’s blowin’ it right.
On an Oklahoma Night
