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
The memories of the greyhound

Fade and quickly pass
In the lonely restaurant windows
And the empty hourglass
Reflect the human hunger
For the questions never asked
And I only had my time for spending

But I'm goin' on back to Tulsa just one more time
Yes, I'm goin' on back to Tulsa just one more time
Yes, I'm goin' on back to Tulsa just one more time
I've got home sweet Oklahoma on my mind

Oh, I'm growing younger now
And how I just don't know
But the feeling’s much more happy
And life it's 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

Yeah, I'm goin' on back to Tulsa one more time
Yes, I'm goin' on down to Tulsa just one more time
Yes, I'm goin' on back to Tulsa one more time
Oh, I've got home sweet Oklahoma on my mind

I'm goin' on back to Tulsa one more time
Yes, I'm goin' on down to Tulsa just one more time
Yes, I'm goin' on back to Tulsa one more time
Yeah, I've got home sweet Oklahoma on my mind
