Twenty Four Hours from Tulsa
Dearest darlin'
I had to write to say that I won't be home anymore
'Cause something happened to me
While I was drivin' home
And I'm not the same anymore

Oh, I was only twenty four hours from Tulsa
Ah, only one day away from your arms
I saw the welcoming light
And stopped to rest for the night

And that is when I saw him as
I pulled in outside of the small motel he was there
And so I walked up to him
Asked where I could get something to eat
And he showed me where

Oh, I was only twenty four hours from Tulsa
Ah, only one day away from your arms
He took me to the café
Cnd he asked if I would stay, I said: "Okay!"

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

As we were dancin' closely
All of a sudden I lost control as he held me tight
And he kissed me, carressed me
Told me he die before he would let me out of his arms arms

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?
And I can never, never, never go home again?
