OKLAHOMA HILLS by Jack Guthrie.

Jack Guthrie was Woody Guthrie's cousin, and if you're old enough, you would know that, because Jack was actually the more famous of the two in the late 40s and early 50s. Oklahoma Hills was his first hit (co-wrote with Woody), and it's magnificent. I've been feeling a little nostalgic for the simple life, and while there's not much in Jack's Oklahoma I can really identify with (there aren't any hills around OKC, not much Indian Nation left, didn't ride my pony too much, etc), this song still does the trick.
