Billi Gilman’s Oklahoma

I have always been fascinated with the voice of Billy Gilman. For more than 6 years, i have enjoyed listening to his music. I remember my sister bought Billy’s One Voice album and gave it to me as a b-day present back in 2002.

I adore the clean voice of the child in each piece he sang, specially in his song Oklahoma.

You’ll learn the story of the song by watching the video and by reading the lyrics below. You can download the song/video HERE .
But the video can only be played in a real player. I advice that you download the song first before installing real media player because downloading will be easier if you dont have the player yet. You can download the player HERE.

BILLY GILMAN – Oklahoma 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
