Gene Pitney - 24 Hours from Tulsa
Tekst: Hal David / Muziek: Burt Bacharach
(1964)






Dearest darlin’
I had to write, to say
That I won’t be home anymore
’Cause something happened to me
While I was drivin’ home
And I’m not the same anymore
Oh, I was only twenty four hours from Tulsa
Ah, only one day away from your arms
I saw a welcoming light
And stopped to rest for the night



And that is when I saw her
As I pulled in outside of a small motel
She was there
And so I walked up to her
Asked where I could get something to eat
And she showed me where
Oh, I was only twenty four hours from Tulsa
Ah, only one day away from your arms
She took me to the café
I asked her if she would stay
She said: “Oké”



Oh, I was only twenty four hours from Tulsa
Ah, only one day away from your arms
The jukebox started to play
And night time turned into day
As we were dancin’, closely
All of a sudden I lost control as I held her charms
And I caressed her, kissed her, told her I’d die
Before I would let her out of my arms



Oh, I was only twenty four hours from Tulsa
Ah, only one day away from your arms
I hate to do this to you
But I love somebody new
What can I do
And I can never, never, never
Go home again
