Tulsa Blues
Music and Lyrics by Rich La Bonté.

Far away from the land of All. I get on.
Driving sky to the northern poles. Fleeting sun.
Signal for the man to pass me
I can't seem to make the last mile run.
Piston blown in the highway hills. It don't roll.
Stubborn pavement, the lizzie's grave. And the law
Calls me to attend the funeral
I can't even raise a single tear.
Far away from the land of All. I break down.

Lost in an ice storm in Tulsa, frozen in a five-dollar room.
Mechanic says it'll take five days and it can't be a day too soon.
When we roll we'll be movin' slow 'cause the snow won't let us leave.
And if you could only, well, see your face you know you'd look a lot like me.

Did you think that we'd never reach home, we'd be
Stranded all our lives?
Tulsa blues, bad vibes.
Did you think that we'd never reach home, we'd be
Stranded all our lives?
Tulsa blues, bad vibes.

Far away from the land of All. I break down.
