"The Day That She Left Tulsa" as written by and Mark/sanders Sanders....
We were half a mile high on the ferris wheel at our old county fair
I didn't even know we had trouble until she told me way up there
That's when my life started spinning round
My world came crashing to the ground the day that she left Tulsa

In a chevy, in a hurry, in the pourin' down rain
With the caution lights flashin', in the passin', lane
From a bridge I watched our dreams goin', down the drain
In a chevy, in a hurry, in the pourin' down rain

No she wasn't showin' yet but she'd be by Christmas time
Up there like a fool I took for granted it was mine
She never came out and told me that I was wrong
But all of a sudden the light came on the day that she left Tulsa

In a chevy, in a hurry, in the pourin' down rain
With the caution lights flashin', in the passin', lane
From a bridge I watched our dreams goin', down the drain
In a chevy, in a hurry, in the pourin' down rain

I guess she thought the truth would end up drivin' me away
But she was wrong but I never had the chance to say
The day that she left Tulsa

In a chevy, in a hurry, in the pourin' down rain
In a chevy, in a hurry, in the pourin' down rain
In a chevy, in a hurry, in the pourin' down rain
With the caution lights flashin', in the passin', lane
From a bridge I watched our dreams goin', down the drain
In a chevy, in a hurry, in the pourin' down rain
In a chevy, in a hurry, in the pourin' down rain
In a chevy, in a hurry, in the pourin' down rain

    General Commentit's about a girl who got pregnant, but her lover isn't the father, instead the father of the unborn child is some guy she had an affair with and rather then tell her lover the truth, she leaves town.
