Well I left Oklahoma  Driving in a Pontiac 
Just about to lose my mind
I was going to Arizona  Maybe on to California  People all living so fine
My momma called me crazy 
My baby said I'm lazy 
 Gonna show em all this time
 Cause you know I ain't no fooling 
I don't need no more damn school 
Want to just walk the line

 Living on Tulsa time
 Living on Tulsa time
 Gonna set my watch back to it 
 Cause you know me, I've been through it 
 Living on Tulsa time

So there I was in Hollywood 
 Thinking I was doing good
 Talking on the telephone line 
They don't want me in the movies 
Ain't nobody sing my song
 Momma says my baby's doing fine
So then I started thinking 
And I got to weaken 
I really had a flash this time
I had no business leaving 
Ain't nobody would be grieving 
Seen I'm on Tulsa time

 Living on Tulsa time
 Living on Tulsa time
 Gonna set my watch back to it 
 Cause you know me, I've been through it 
 Living on Tulsa time
