24 Hours From Tulsa  Gene Pitney

[G]Dearest  darling,

I had to write to say that I won't be [A7]home any..[D]more.

cause something [G]happened to me
while I was driving home and I'm not the [A7]same any[D]more.
Oh, I was [C]only twenty-four hours from [Am]Tulsa,
oh, [C]only one day away from your [Am]arms.
I [F]saw a welcoming [G]light, and [F]stopped to rest for the [G]night.
And that is whe[G]n I saw her
as I pulled in outside of the small [A7]motel she was [D]there.
And so I [G]walked up to her
asked where I could get something to eat and [A7]she showed me
[D]where.
Oh, I was [C]only twenty-four hours from [Am]Tulsa,
ah, [C]only one day away from your [Am]arms.
She [F]took me to the [G]cafe, I [F]asked her if she would [G]stay.
[G]She said, okay.
[D]Oh, I was [C]only twenty-four hours from [Am]Tulsa,
ahh, [C]only one day away from your [Am]arms.
The [F]jukebox started to [G]play, and [F]night time turned into [G]day.
As we were [G]dancing closely,
all of a sudden I lost control as [A7]I held her [D]charms.
And I [G]caressed her, kissed her,
told her I'd die before I would let her [A7]out of my [D]arms.
Oh, I was [C]only twenty-four hours from [Am]Tulsa,
ahh, [C]only one day away from your [Am]arms.
I [F]hate to do this to [G]you, but [F]I found somebody [G]new.
What [G]can I do?
And I can [G]never, never, never.[G7]....go [C]home again.
A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
