Oklahoma
Billy Gilman Lyrics


Suitcase packed with all his things
Car pulls up, the doorbell rings
He don't want to go
He thought he'd found his home
But with circumstances he can't change
Waves goodbye as they pull away
From the life he's known
For the last seven months or so

She said we found the man who looks like you
Who cried and said he never knew
About the boy in pictures that we showed him
A rambler in his younger days
He knew he made a few mistakes
But he swore he would have been there
Had he known it
Son we think we found your dad in Oklahoma

A million thoughts raced through his mind
What's his name, what's he like and will be be
Anything like the man in his dreams
She could see the questions in his eyes
Whispered "don't be scared my child
I'll let you know, what we know

About the man we found, he looks like you
And cried and said he never knew
About the boy in pictures that we showed him
A rambler in his younger days He knew he'd made a few mistakes
But he swore he would've been there Had he known it
You always said that this was something that you wanted
Son it's time to meet your Dad in Oklahoma

One last turn he held his breath
'Til they reached the fifth house on the left
And all at once the tears came rolling in
And as they pulled into the drive
A man was waiting there outside
Who wiped the worry from his eyes Smiled and took his hand

And he said I'm the man who looks like you
Who cried because I never knew
About that boy in pictures that they showed me
A rambler in my younger days I knew I made a few mistakes
But I swear I would have been there had I known it
Never again will you ever be alone
Son welcome to your home in Oklahoma

When I was 11 I found out my dad wasn't my biological dad and after that I used to burn this song up. It's like therapy to me.

Bradley Williams

I literally lived this. Every single part of it. Except they told me they found my dad first. Talk about a punch to the gut. Such raw emotion for me when I hear this. I was 10 when I met him.

D.J.

I pray that it was a great "homecoming", and that you lived a good life with your dad!

Cher L.

Lazarus falls i’m so sorry that you lived this. Every child should have a mom and dad who loves them but this is not a perfect world unfortunately. I hope you’re doing OK and have a good life now

Donny Deutsch

I wish I could give a permanent home to any kid that doesn't have one.

Donny Deutsch

@julieo6266 I'm sorry that happened to you. No kid deserves to be treated that way. Unfortunately lot of people who become foster parents only do it for the money. I wish there was a better system for kids so they don't have to live like that. I will keep you in prayer.
