lyrics

Lord I know I've forsaken you
to be fair you forsook me first
we can pass this plate of blame around
I'm not sure what's worse
the pointed finger pettiness
the angry lack of forgiveness
your laughing at my distress
I'm ready to let it go
Just get me on that road
I-40 going west
Lord, get me to Oklahoma
in a dirty white cotton dress
and we can talk, make amends
be cordial if not friends
I'm ready to let it go
I'm ready to go
These words, these words mean nothing
if these words are all I have
so I'll crawl across the Ozarks
just to find a place to stand
and see myself for what I am:
a blue streak, like lightning
a dry and heavy wind
a destructive force,
a tire swing
swaying and breaking the limb
so let me go
Just get me on that road
I-40 going west
Lord, get me to Oklahoma
in a dirty white cotton dress
and we can talk or walk away
you won't have to see my sorry face again
'cause once I'm in Guthrie
once I'm in Enid
once I'm in Woodward
once I'm in Guymon
I'll be gone, I'll be gone, I'll be gone
so let me go
