Here in the frontier country
In 1889
The gem of the Cross Timbers region
Was a newcomer's paradise

Cattlemen and cowboys came crawling
The landrush was certainly on
And herds grazed in wide open country
Back when the country was young

OKC, the Big Friendly
Still welcomes those who are searchin'
For a fortune
Or just open country

In 1928
They discovered black gold
And now a new land rush had started
Say goodbye to the days of the old

Cars and tall buildings
Streets going every which way
Business, it sure was booming
As more folks moved to OK

OKC, the Big Friendly
Welcomes those who are searchin'
For a fortune
Or just open country

But you can still hear
The call of the Old West
Cowboys still work the plains region
Give their cattle the best

And nothing stays the same
But some things, they never change
Modern frills and fences still perplex 'em
And Okies still hate Texans

OKC, the Big Friendly
Still welcomes those who are searchin'
For a fortune
Or just open country

(slow yodel)
