Tulsa

There's a detour sign on the road that winds
Out on the broad highway
But the place for me is the sign I see
T U L S A straight ahead

There's a railroad crossing and the bus-a rockin'
Just-a takin' me away
But I'll pass the time, till I see that sign
T U L S A straight ahead

I'm gonna settle down when I reach that city fair
I'm homeward bound and I know I'll soon be there

Where the tall corn grows and the black all flows
In old Oak, K L A
In the middle of it all I hear the call
T U L S A straight ahead

I'm gonna settle down when I reach that city fair
I'm homeward bound and I know I'll soon be there

Well, there's no use talkin', 'cause I'll get there walkin'
If there's is no other way
'Cause I read that sign on the old state line
T U L S A straight ahead
