"My Girl Back Home"
Sung by the character of Cable: How far are they? Philadelphia P.A. Princeton N.J. How far are they?
Sung by Nellie: How far are they? Little Rock, A.R.K.
"My Girl Back Home" is yet another song from Rodgers & Hammerstein's late-1940's musical, "South Pacific". In "My Girl Back Home" the character of Cable (a Seabee) and Nellie sing about the loves and family they have back home. Cable mentions that his family and loved ones are in the real places of Philadelphia, Pennyslvania and Princeton, New Jersey, while Nellie laments that her family is back home in the real place of Little Rock, Arkansas.

Oklahoma, where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain And the wavin' wheat can sure smell sweet When the wind comes right behind the rain.
Oklahoma, Ev'ry night my honey lamb and I Sit alone and talk and watch a hawk Makin' lazy circles in the sky.
We know we belong to the land And the land we belong to is grand!
And when we say Yeeow! Ayipioeeay!
We're only sayin' You're doin' fine, Oklahoma! Oklahoma O.K.
In 1943, "Oklahoma" was the first major musical for Broadway from the songwriting and musical writing duo of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein (and it certainly would not be their last). The songs from "Oklahoma!" coming during the middle of World War II probably expressed well why the American servicemen and women were fighting and working to secure democracy during the war (and perhaps in some small way "Oklahoma!" might have contributed to the eventual Allies win two years later in 1945). "Oklahoma!" was released in 1947 as a motion picture (the first of many musicals of it's kind from a Broadway musical that set it's tone as a story). And in 1947, the motion picture "Oklahoma!" expressed the seemingly endless and boundless optimism many Americans seemed to feel post World War II (although in a bit of irony, the plot of "Oklahoma!" partly centers on the late nineteenth century "war" between farmers and ranchers).
