Song Author Billy Joe Shaver og Hillman Hall Performer: Waylon Jennings og Bobby Emmons Submitted by: Anonymous

[F]Omaha [G7]you've been weighing [C]heavy on my [F]mind
I guess I never [G7]really left at [C]all  
I'm [F]turning all those [G7]roads I've walked [C]around the other [F]way  
And coming back to [G7]you Oma[C]ha  

[F]Omaha Ne[G7]braska wasn't [C]good enough for [F]me  
I always thought I [G7]was the roamin' [C]kind
With a [F]pocket full of [G7]dreams and my [C]one shirt on my [F]back
I left there looking for some things to [G7]find   

Rode my [F]thumb to San [G7]Francisco I [C]worked down by the [F]bay  
Got some schoolin' [G7]paid for by the [C]law  
The [F]hardest thing I [G7]learned there [C]was there ain't no easy [F]way  
To get ahead behind those county [G7]walls

So it's so [F]long Cali[G7]fornia reckon' [C]I'll be moving [F]on  
I'm leaving even [G7]if I have to [C]crawl
I've [F]got some loose ends [G7]layin' around [C]that I left un[F]done
Waiting there for [G7]me in Oma[C]ha  

[F]Omaha [G7]you've been weighing [C]heavy on my [F]mind
I guess I never [G7]really left at [C]all  
I'm [F]turning all those [G7]roads I've walked [C]around the other [F]way  
And coming back to [G7]you Oma[C]ha  


Omaha you've been weighing heavy on my mind
I guess I never really left at all
I'm turning all those roads I've walked around the other way
And coming back to you Omaha

Omaha Nebraska wasn't good enough for me
I always thought I was the roamin' kind
With a pocket full of dreams and my one shirt on my back
I left there looking for some things to find

Rode my thumb to San Francisco I worked down by the bay
Got some schoolin' paid for by the law
The hardest thing I learned there was there ain't no easy way
To get ahead behind those county walls

So it's so long California reckon' I'll be moving on
I'm leaving even if I have to crawl
I've got some loose ends layin' around that I left undone
Waiting there for me in Omaha

Omaha you've been weighing heavy on my mind
I guess I never really left at all
I'm turning all those roads I've walked around the other way
And coming back to you Omaha
