Thanks Kate,

I found the actual lyrics to that song at: http://www.countryzone.net/artists/michael/lyrics/04-modern.htm

I was pretty close in what I thought they were:

Oklahoma Stray

(Hugh Prestwood)

Baby once in Oklahoma
I took in a stray cat
I came home from work one day
And there she sat
Someone long before me
Had injured her so much
Though I fed her for a year
Never did we touch

Some hearts truly
Maybe some hearts truly... truly break

Well I swear nobody chooses
To live a life alone
I guess trust all drains away
When hearts cut to the bone
And God forbid I lose you
Cause baby come that day
That´s when I will be just another
Oklahoma stray

Some hearts truly
Maybe some hearts truly... truly break

Nothing is more gentle
Nothing is more fragile
Nothing more courageous
Nothing more in danger
That an open heart

Baby once in Oklahoma
I took in a stray
And then one night I found her on
The roadside where she lay
And then at last I held her
And then I dug a grave
And cried for her
And cried for every heart
Love could not save

Oh love love truly
Maybe some hearts truly
Maybe some hearts truly... truly break
