"Where the Arkansas River Leaves Oklahoma" as written by and Wayland D. Holyfield....
Where the Arkansas River leaves Oklahoma
It runs free and rambles muddy and wide
Where the Arkansas River leaves Oklahoma
It's gone forever and never looks back

I met her in Stillwell she just turned twenty a spirited beauty like I'd never known
And me a dirt farmer who lives by the river
But she said she loved me and the free life I owned

We married in April and lived by the river we worked that land from spring till the fall
But I guess when the winter howled at our window
She couldn't help hearing that wild river call

Where the Arkansas River leaves Oklahoma
It runs free and rambles muddy and wide
Where the Arkansas River leaves Oklahoma
It's gone forever and never looks back

She tried to conquer that wild rage within her
But something too strong ran deep in her soul
But I know she loved me she cried like a baby
That cold winter evening she answered the call

Where the Arkansas River leaves Oklahoma
It runs free and rambles muddy and wide
Where the Arkansas River leaves Oklahoma
It's gone forever and never looks back
