I ain't in Houston anymore


#1

This is based on Carrie Underwood’s song I ain’t in Checotah anymore. It is based on my experience here in Lawton,ok

Where 45 meet Causeway
There’s a trillion stop light town
And back when I was really young
Part of that burned down
On any given Friday night
We’d sit four hours
Between 610 and 59
honking all the while
With as many friends as I could pack
In my Daddy’s Ford
But I ain’t in Houston anymore

A hotel in Houston
Hold more people than our town
And what I just paid for dinner
Wouldn’t be rent on a house
I’d rather be sippen’ coffee in Galvaston
Than calln’ cabs here in Lawton
But I ain’t in Houston anymore

I’m in a world so wide
It makes Houston feel small sometimes
I love this big blue sky
The Oklahoma kind

In a world of long windy roads
The dark lanes of I44
All the casino’s flashin
Can make a girl feel pretty good
You cant get anything you want here
Not even a Target Store
But I ain’t in Houston anymore

I’m in a world so wide,
It makes me feel small sometimes,
I love these big blue skies,
the Oklahoma kind

Where the Texan’s beat the Cowboy’s
Old settler’s day and the Okra fest
After prom down at the ER
Catchin’ stincrays in Galvaston Bay
I ain’t in Houston anymore.

I’m in a world so wide,
It makes me feel small sometimes,
I love these big blue skies,
the Oklahoma kind,
But I ain’t in Houston,
No I ain’t in Houston,
Oh, there’s nothing like Oklahoma.

Where 45 meets Causeway,
There’s a trillion stoplight town
