[Verse]
G
Well I left Oklahoma

Driving in a Pontiac
                      D
Just about to lose my mind

I was going to Arizona

Maybe on to California
                      G
People all living so fine

My momma says I'm crazy

My baby said I'm lazy
                        D
Gonna show em all this time

Cause you know I ain't no fooling

I don't need no more damn school
                       G
Want to just walk the line


[Chorus]
(G)
Living on Tulsa time
               D
Living on Tulsa time

Gonna set my watch back to it

Cause you know me, I've been through it
                  G
Living on Tulsa time

[Verse]
(G)
So there I was in Hollywood

Thinking I was doing good
                          D
Talking on the telephone line

They don't want me in the movies

Ain't nobody sing my song
                            G
Momma says my baby's doing fine

So then I started thinking

And I got to weaken
                            D
I really had a flash this time

I had no business leaving

Ain't nobody would be grieving
                   G
Seen I'm on Tulsa time


[Chorus 2x]
(G)
Living on Tulsa time
               D
Living on Tulsa time

Gonna set my watch back to it

Cause you know me, I've been through it
                  G   D   G
Living on Tulsa time


[Outro]
G  D  G  2x
