lyrics

Many a month has come and gone
Since I wandered from my home
In those Oklahoma hills where I was born.
Many a page of life has turned,
Many a lesson I have learned;
Well, I feel like in those hills I still belong.

'Way down yonder in the Indian Nation
Ridin' my pony on the reservation,
In those Oklahoma hills where I was born.
Now, 'way down yonder in the Indian Nation,
A cowboy's life is my occupation,
In those Oklahoma hills where I was born.

Let me turn that life a page
To the land of the great Osage
The day I drove my pony through the draw,
While the oak and blackjack trees
Kiss that untamed red dirt breeze,
A knew the sweetest gals I ever saw

'Way down yonder in the Indian Nation
Ridin' my pony on the reservation,
In those Oklahoma hills where I was born.
Now, 'way down yonder in the Indian Nation,
A cowboy's life is my occupation,
In those Oklahoma hills where I was born.

Many a month has come and gone
Since I wandered from that home
Oklahoma hills where I was born.
Many a page of life has turned,
Many a lesson I have learned;
I know back in those hills I do belong.

Drawing influences from contemporary urban balladeers, rowdy southern bluegrass, and the sardonic yet wry wit of New England's localized folk scenes, Pesky J. Nixon (PJN) creates an atmosphere both inviting and challenging for audiences. ... more
