lyrics

He took his chances and he ran
Out from the hills to no mans land
Oh my lord life was hard, back then

Oklahoma sky was his roof.
Tore into the earth it brought him food
Oh my lord, life was hard back then

He said oh,
Life can be hard
But oh,
Hard can be good
So he built his home where no one else would

I follow in his footsteps in my dreams
Memories of my old bedtime stories.
Oh my lord, life seemed good back then

He said oh,
Life can be hard but
Oh,
Hard can be good
And he built his home where no one else would

I felt my heart beat!
I filled my lungs deep
In no mans land
And then like my forefathers I took a chance
