[Verse 1]

A
I left Oklahoma, Driving in a pontiac
                       E7
Just about to lose my mind.

I was going to Arizona, Maybe on to california
                          A
Where people all live so fine.

My mother says I’m crazy, my baby calls me lazy
                                  E7
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’
                             A
I was born to just walk the line.


[Chorus]

                                      E7
Living on tulsa time, Living on tulsa time

Gonna set my watch back to it
                                                            A
’cause you know that I’ve been through it, living on tulsa timeChorus


[Verse 2]

So there I was in hollywood, thinking I was doing good
                           E7
Talking on the telephone line

They don’t want me in the movies and nobody sings my songs,
                              A
My mama says my baby’s doing fine.

So then I started winking, then I started thinking,
                                E7
That I really had a flash this time

That I had no business leaving, and nobody would be grieving,
                      A
You see I’m on tulsa time.


[Chorus]

                                      E7
Living on tulsa time, Living on tulsa time

Gonna set my watch back to it
                                                            A
’cause you know that I’ve been through it, living on tulsa time

good post, just some minor lyric changes:
so there i was in hollywood,
wishing i was doing good
.....

...but they don't need me in the movies,
and nobody sings my songs,
guess i'm just wasteing time

and then i started thinking,
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!
