I was Born in Oklahoma (Why am I Singing This Way)

Here are the audio and Youtube video for the Song I was Born in Oklahoma (Why am I Singing This Way?)

Song by Bryant Oden

Lyrics and guitar chords/tabs:

G                  C
I was born in oklahoma
G                        D
I always liked the oak aroma
G                    C
But one thing I don’t knowa
G             D               G
Why am I singing this way?

I’ve never seen a British movie
I’m sure they’re mostly pretty groovy
But one thing that’s confused me
Why am I singing this way?

When I was young I moved to Texas
I’m as Texan as Tex Mex is
But on thing that perplexes
Why am I singing this way?

I like to go to MIssissippi
But they call me an English hippy
I say don’t be so blooming lippy
Why am I singing this way?

    Whenever I’m in the hospital, which is quite often, I always listen to your songs, Bryant. They help me forget that I’m even sick with Stage 4 Lymphoma NHL, Type 1 Diabetes, and Mitral Heart Prolapse. Whenever I listen to your songs, it’s like that your in the hospital singing just to me and all of my hospital friends! Thanks so much!

    Is the stuff in this song real? Did you make this song because people thought you were British because of a slight accent some heard in some of you’re songs?

    Hope you reply,

    It wasn’t based on anything real. I just thought it was a funny idea. 🙂

    Hi Bryant. Im Mr. Noodle. You probably wont reply but, um, OH NO! I FORGOT MY QUESTION! I dont want to look like a fool! Um, um, POTATO!!!

  23. Mr. Noodle Says:

    You should make a potato song. You can say all the kinds of potatoes or sing about their eyes or sing about them baked, mashed, french fried, or hash browned. Have you made a cheese song? That’d be awesome. You could sing about the kinds, or what you like it on… OR ABOUT HOW YOU PUT CHEESE ON BAKED POTATOES!!!!!!!

    to be completely honest, your British accent isn’t so good. no offence, though. (it’s a good song)

    No offence taken. You are not the first to report that I didn’t exactly nail that. 🙂
