[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 24 hours from [Am]Tulsa,
[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 [G]when I saw her as I pulled in outside of the
small mo[A7]tel 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 24 hours from [Am]Tulsa,
[C]Only one day away from your [Am]arms.
She [F]took me to the [G]café,
I [F]asked her if she would [G]stay. [G]She said, Okay.

[D]Oh, I was [C]only 24 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 24 hours from [Am]Tulsa,
[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 never, [G]never,
never..[G7]...go [C]home again.
