Where sixty-nine meets forty
There's a single-stoplight town
And back when I was really young
A part of that burned down
On any given Friday night 
We'd drive a hundred miles
 Between the Sonic and the grocery store
 Laughing all the while 
With as many friends as I could pack
In my daddy's Ford
But I ain't in Checotah anymore

My hotel in Manhattan  Holds more people than our town
And what I just paid for dinner  Would be a down payment on a house 
I'd rather be tipping cows in Tulsa 
Than hailing cabs here in New York
But I ain't in Checotah anymore

I'm in a world so wide
It makes me feel small sometimes
I miss the big blue skies 
The Oklahoma kind

In a world of long red carpets 
The bright lights of Hollywood 
All the paparazzi flashing
 Could make a girl feel pretty good
You can get anything you want here
 Except a Wal-Mart store 
But I ain't in Checotah anymore

I'm in a world so wide
It makes me feel small sometimes
I miss the big blue skies 
The Oklahoma kind

 Where the Wildcats beat the Iron heads 
Old Settler's Day and the Okra Fest
 After prom, down at the bowling lanes
 Catching croppy fish in Eufala lake
I ain't in Checotah anymore

Oh, yeah
I'm in a world so wide
It makes me feel small sometimes
I miss the big blue skies 
The Oklahoma kind
But I ain't in Checotah 
No, I ain't in Checotah 
Oh, there's nothing like Oklahoma 

 Where sixty-nine meets forty
There's a single-stoplight town
