Tabbed by: Travis Wong
Email: travis_wong@hotmail.com

Tulsa Time by Clapton... I recomend using rock bass for a better feel.  Email if you need to know how.

Tuning: EADGBe

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 timeChorus

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 business 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

wishing i was doing good

...but they don't need me in the movies,

man i'm really sinking
and i really had a flashthis time

Although recorded by Eric Clapton and Don Williams, Tulsa Time was written by Danny Flowers, one of Nashville's finest writers and guitarists. Danny was on tour with Don snowed in at a Tulsa hotel watching The Rockford Files when he wrote this. Great song!
