I left Oklahoma drivin' in a Pontiac just about to lose my mind
I was goin' to Arizona maybe on to California where the people all live so fine
My baby said I's crazy my momma called me lazy
I was goin' to show 'em all this time
Cause you know I ain't no foolin' I don't need no more schoolin'
I was born to just walk the line
Livin' on Tulsa time livin' on Tulsa time
Well you know I've been through it when I set my watch back to it
Livin' on Tulsa time
[ dobro ]
Well there I was in Hollywood wishin' I was doing good talkin' on the telephone line
But they don't need me in the movies
And nobody sings my songs guess I'm just a wastin' time
Well then I got to thinkin' man I'm really sinkin' and I really had a flash this time
I had no bus'ness leavin' and nobody would be grievin'
If I went back to Tulsa time
Livin' on Tulsa time livin' on Tulsa time
Gonna set my watch back to it cause you know I've been through it
Livin' on Tulsa time
Livin' on Tulsa time livin' on Tulsa time
Gonna set my watch back to it cause you know I've been through it
Livin' on Tulsa time
[ guitar ]
