ERIC CLAPTON (1978) - Tulsa Time

 

Well, I left Oklahoma

Driving in a Pontiac just about to lose my mind.

I was going to Arizona,

Maybe on to California

Where people all live so fine.

 

My mother says I'm crazy,

My baby calls me lazy,

But I'm gonna show them all this time

'Cause you know I ain't no fool and

I don't need no more damn schoolin' I was born to just walk the line.

 

Living on Tulsa Time.

Living on Tulsa Time.

Gonna set my watch back to it

'Cause you know that I've been through it.

/ Living on Tulsa Time.

 

BREAK x 2 (4 after Root return)

 

So there I was in Hollywood thinking I was doing good,

Talking on the telephone line.

They don't want me in the movies

And nobody sings my songs;

My mama says my baby's doing fine.

 

So then I started winking,

Then I started thinking that I really had a flash this time.

That I had no bussiness leaving,

And nobody would be grieving;

You see I'm on Tulsa time.

 

Living on Tulsa Time.

Living on Tulsa Time.

Gonna set my watch back to it

'Cause you know that I've been through it.

Living on Tulsa Time.

 

Living on Tulsa Time.

Living on Tulsa Time.

Gonna set my watch back to it

'Cause you know that I've been through it.

Living on Tulsa Time.
