	 G
	Dearest  darling
	                                       A7      D
	I had to write to say that I won't be home anymore
	                  G
	'Cause something happened   to me
	                                          A7      D
	While I was driving home and I'm not the same anymore

Chorus 1:

	           C                          Am
	Oh, I was only twenty-four hours from Tulsa
	           C                          Am
	Ah, only one day away from your arms
	   F                G
	I saw a welcoming night
	      F                       G [N.C.]
	And stopped to rest for the night

Verse 2:

	And that is when I   saw her
	As I pulled in outside of the small hotel she was there
	And so I walked up   to her
	Asked where I could get something to eat and she showed me where

Chorus 2:

	Oh, I was only twenty-four hours from Tulsa
	Ah, only one day away from your arms
	She took me to the cafe
	    F                     G [N.C.]
	I asked her if she would stay
	[G   G      G  G]         [single notes; acoustic bass]
	She said   "O. K."

Instrumental break:

	(orchestral break over verse chords)

Chorus 3 [as per chorus 1]:

	Oh, I was only twenty-four hours from Tulsa
	Ah, only one day away from your arms
	The jukebox started to play
	And nighttime turned into day

Verse 3:

	As we were dancing   closely
	All of a sudden I lost control as I held her charms
	And I caressed her   kissed her
	Told her I'd die before I would let her out of my arms

Chorus 4 [as per chorus 2]:

	Oh, I was only twenty-four hours from Tulsa
	Ah, only one day away from your arms
	I hate to do this to you
	But I love somebody new
	What can   I do?

Coda:

	           G                    G7 [xx5767] [N.C.]
	And I can never, never, never
	    C
	Go home again

	  C
