Tulsa Time - Danny Flowers as covered by Eric Clapton

Here's a rocked-up version of an old one by Danny Flowrers 
Flowers wrote this back in 1960; 
It's been covered by Don Williams and then Eric Clapton.

I hope you enjoy it. I include Clapton's intro. Try it.  
Works Great with a slide in "E" tuning.

Tuning : E A D G B E  	 Time Signature: 4/4

E                                                              B7
I left Okalahoma, drivin' in my Pontiac, just about to lose my mind
B7                                                                          E 
I was goin' to Arizona, maybe on to California where the people all live so fine
E                                                                                B7
My momma called me lazy, my baby say's I'm crazy, I was gonna show 'em all this time
B7                                                                                            E
'Cause you know I ain't no fool, And I don't need no more school, I was born to just walk the line

Chorus:
E                                   B7
Livin on Tulsa Time, livin on Tulsa Time
B7
Gonna set my watch back to it 'cause you know I been through it
B7                E
Livin on Tulsa Time



Well, there I was in Hollywood, wishin' I was doin' good, talkin' on the telephone line
They don't need me in the movies and nobody sings my songs, I guess I'm just a waste of time
Well then I started drinkin' and man, I got to thinkin' and I really had a flash this time
I had no business leaving' and won't nobody will be grieving' if I head on back to Tulsa Time

End - 
Chorus 2x - then
E7         B7      E
Livin on Tulsa Time
E7         B7      E
Livin on Tulsa Time
E7         B7      E
Livin on Tulsa Time
