"Home Sweet Oklahoma" as written by and Leon Russell....
When I was a young man barely seventeen
I went on out to Hollywood chasing my dream
And dusty Oklahoma was all I'd ever seen
And I was getting older
Memories of the greyhound
Fade and quickly pass
Lonely restaurant windows
And the empty hourglass
Reflect the human hunger
Of the questions never asked
And I only had my time for spending

[Chorus]
I'm goin' on back to Tulsa just one more time
I'm goin' on back to Tulsa just one more time
I'm goin' on back to Tulsa just one more time
I've got home sweet Oklahoma on my mind

Now I'm growing younger
And how I just don't know
Life's a lot more happy
And it's movin' nice and slow
The past is just some photographs
Of the good friends that I know
And my love is so much better
Yes it is

[Chorus x3]

When I was a young man barely seventeen
I went on out to Hollywood chasing my dream
And dusty Oklahoma was all I'd ever seen
And I was getting older
