Subject: Oklahoma Hills

	Here are the lyrics and chords (corrections and enhancements welcomed)
to a song called "Oklahoma Hills". The song was co-written by Jack
Guthrie and his cousing Woodie Guthrie and became a hit in 1945. The
version I have sourced for this submission is performed by Jack Guthrie
& His Oklahomans and was taken from an EMI (Capitol) album - Catalogue
No. SCA.045 entitled "Country Music Is Here To Stay" Vol 1.
