  • Well my daddy said the day he met you
    We weren't meant to be
    Said that boy's got a wild streak in him
    That spelled trouble for me
    My foolish heart had love to burn
    You took it for a ride
    Down a long road of twist and turns
    Heartaches, hurt and lies

    You put the T for tears in Texas
    S for sad in St. Louis
    Our reckless travels led us
    To the state of Missouri
    I cried clear 'cross Carolina
    'Bout some boy in Tennessee
    There's no U in Oklahoma
    And that's okay with me

    We tried KC, Fort Worth, Reno
    Cheyenne, Timbuktu
    Somewhere down round Tupelo
    My daddy's words rang true
    I called it quits in T-Town
    I finally had my say
    Adios, see you around
    I'm gone, you go your way

    You put the T for tears in Texas
    S for sad in St. Louis
    Our reckless travels led us
    To the state of Missouri
    I cried clear 'cross Carolina
    'Bout some boy in Tennessee
    There's no U in Oklahoma
    And that's okay with me

    You put the T for tears in Texas
    S for sad in St. Louis
    Our reckless travels led us
    To the state of Missouri
    I cried clear 'cross Carolina
    'Bout some boy in Tennessee
    There's no U in Oklahoma
    And that's okay with me

    Oh there's no U in Oklahoma
    And that's okay with me

    Yodelayheehoo!
