Turnpike Troubadours – Oklahoma Stars Lyrics

SHARE
[Verse 1] Well the night goes on forever when you try to make it last
We were passing time together, just laying in the grass
And we looked up at the heaven, and we saw the worlds collide
We were lying still and watching, they were flying through the sky

[Chorus] The stars in Oklahoma
Never seen a night so cool and clear
Shootin’ stars in Oklahoma
Burn so bright, then they disappear

[Verse 2] Well the moonlight has a way of throwing shadows on the night
It would be a shame to waste it on a place we had to hide
With the morning glowing bright and shining light upon our faces
We faded with the dawn, and then we went our separate ways

[Chorus] ‘Neath the stars in Oklahoma
Never seen a night so cool and clear
Shootin’ stars in Oklahoma
They shine so bright, then they disappear

[Verse 3] Ah the stars in Oklahoma and the banks in late September
And I lead you through the darkness on a night you won’t remember
Is everyone that easy? Do they all just play the fool?
Are they all just out here lookin’ for a way to break the rules?

[Instrumental] [Verse 4] Well it would take a fool to say it, like a photograph o’ grace
Fools need supervision, or a gift for saving face
Yeah, we got it on a handshake, bought it for a song
Yeah, chase a simple feeling for doing something wrong

[Chorus] ‘Neath the stars in Oklahoma
Never seen a night so cool and clear
Shootin’ stars in Oklahoma
Shine so bright, then they disappear
Shine so bright, then they disappear
