Lyrics

If I don’t die in Oklahoma, won’t you say a Christian prayer?

For my heart is in my homeland, and it’s waiting for me there

            When I go, don’t send me flowers

            No don’t lay me in the ground

            Come and sing me home for hours

            With my friends and my family all around

Cast my dust upon the wind; let her take me to my rest

She’s a comfort and a friend as the sun sets in the west

Save my soul for the Nescatunga, where the water tastes like tears

There’s a tug that pulls me under, let her take away my fears

Give my love to my dear husband, when I leave him all alone

He has been a true companion, but this journey is my own

If I don’t die in Oklahoma, won’t you say a Christian prayer?

For my heart is in my homeland, and it’s waiting for me there

If I don’t die in Oklahoma, won’t you say a Christian prayer?
