[Verse 1]
 
G
I left Oklahoma drivin' in a Pontiac
                      D
Just about to lose my mind
 
I was goin' to Arizona, maybe on to California
                             G
Where the people all live so fine
 
My baby said I's crazy, my momma called me lazy
                              D
I was gonna show 'em all this time
 
'Cause you know I ain't no fool an' I don't need no more schoolin'
                            G
I was born to just walk the line
 
 
[Chorus]
 
G
Livin' on Tulsa time
                D
Livin' on Tulsa time
 
Well you know I've been through it
 
When I set my watch back to it
                G
Livin' on Tulsa time
 
 
[Verse 2]
 
G
Well there I was in Hollywood, wishin' I was doin' good
                         D
Talkin' on the telephone line
 
But they don't need me in the movies and nobody sings my songs
                       G
Guess I'm just wastin' time
 
Well then I got to thinkin', man I'm really sinkin'
                              D
And I really had a flash this time
 
I had no business leavin' and nobody would be grievin'
                           G
If I went on back to Tulsa time
 
 
[Chorus]
 
G
Livin' on Tulsa time
                D
Livin' on Tulsa time
 
Gonna set my watch back to it
 
'Cuz you know I've been through it
                G
Livin' on Tulsa time
 
G
Livin' on Tulsa time
                D
Livin' on Tulsa time
 
Gonna set my watch back to it
 
'Cuz you know I've been through it
                G
Livin' on Tulsa time

[Verse]
        D
Well, I love to wander on a sandy shore
       G                                                   D
And I love to wander down the streets of towns I've never been before
D
Take me somewhere out of reach, lie in unfamiliar sheets
             G
And hear the ocean roar
         Em
Ask for more I could not do
         A
Just as long as you're there too
 
 
[Chorus]
         D
Just as long as I have you
        G
I'll go anywhere
        D
Just as long as you're there too
        G
I don't really care
        Em
I'll go anywhere you are
            A
'Cause with you is where I belong

I've just got to have you, there to be a part of everything I see
D
In the windows I walk past, in the mirror in the morning
       G
In my photographs
       Em
In the candlelight cafes
       A
Let me always see your face
 
 
[Bridge]
    G
and Oh, it really doesn't matter
     D
Just where the road leads
       G        Bm
To the top of a mountain
   Em          A
Or down to the sea
 
 
[Chorus]
         D
Just as long as I have you
        G
I'll go anywhere
        D
Just as long as you're there too
        G
I don't really care
        Em
I'll go anywhere you are
            A
'Cause with you is where I belong
         D                   G

She Never Knew Me

She Never Knew Me Guitar Chords & Lyrics
Capo: 2nd fret

[Intro]
A  Amaj7  F#m  A  D  A   Bm   E7
 
[Verse 1]
A                  Amaj7       F#m           A
She packed up her suitcase and walked to the door
    D              A
She said she won't come back
     Bm            E7
Like she's done before
  A            Amaj7    F#m          A
I bet she's in Dallas before it gets dark
  D          A             Bm          E7
I bet she's thinkin’ she's breakin’ my heart
D                        A                D
She knows I love her, so she thinks I'll crawl
    A         Amaj7     A        C#m
But she never knew me, she never knew me
D         E7         A
She never knew me at all
 
[Bridge]
 E                    D
She knows I love her, I know I need her
A             F#m              D              E
Lord knows to please her I've tried and I've tried
 
[Verse 2]
   A        Amaj7     F#m                A
By now if I know her, she's changed her mind
D                   A           Bm          E7
She'll pull off the highway and have a good cry
    A           Amaj7
And then like a lost child
       F#m           A
She'll want to come home
D               A       Bm            E7
She thinks I'm waitin’  there by the phone

G             D         C        G         C    D
When I was a kid Uncle Remus he put me to bed
        G          D         C       G        C    D
With a picture of Stonewall Jackson above my head
     Em                         D
Then daddy came in to kiss his little man
      Em                      D
With gin on his breath and a Bible in his hand
   C                       D
He talked about honor and things I should know
           C                     D
Then he'd stagger a little as he went out the door

But you ain't afraid if you're washed in the blood like I was.
    Em                                D
The smell of Cape Jasmine through the window screen

John R. and The Wolfman Kept me company
       C                        D
By the light of the radio by my bed,

With Thomas Wolfe whispering in my head.

G             D        C          G            C      D
When I was in school I ran with a kid down the street,
      G           D            C     G           C     D
And I watched him burn himself up on bourbon and speed,

But I was smarter than that, and I could choose.
           Em                       D
Learned to talk like the man on the six o'clock news.
     C                     D
When I was eighteen, lord, I hit the road
     C                           D
But it really doesn't matter how far I'd go

Rake And Rambling Man

Rake And Rambling Man Guitar Chords & Lyrics
C
I ran into an old friend of mine the other day
G7                                   C
We hadn't seen each other in quite a while
C
And what he had to say hit me pretty hard
G7                                            C
Cause I think a lot of folks get started this way
 
                                       G7                C
He said I thought it would be so easy  another one night stand
                                G7                      C
She seemed so warm and willing  right in the palm of my hand
                                         G7                     C
Now its three months ago last Wednesday  since I woke up in her bed
                                G7                C
Lord I think I love her  but it scares me half to death
 
          F                   C
Cause you know I'm a rake and rambling man
F                 C          F                  C           F
Free as and eagle flies well look at me now and tell me the truth
C                F        C
Do I look like a daddy to you 
                    F        C
Oh do I look like a daddy to you
 
C
Now she's feeling sick in the morning
G7                     C
She can't get into her jeans
 
I spent my last ten dollars
G7                           C
And bought her a second hand ring
 
 
I start to work next Monday
G7                         C
Cause I just can't let her down
 
I've had me some good times
G7                      C
But that's all changing now
 
Repeat #3  x2

G  G
 
 
[Verse]
 
  G                            G
I don't believe in superstars, organic food or foreign cars
  G                                    G
I don't believe the price of gold, the certainty of growing old
     D
That right is right and left is wrong, that north and south can't get along
     G
That east is east and west is west, and being first is always best
 
 
[Chorus]
 
        C             C       G              G7
But I believe in love,    I believe in babies

I believe in Mom and Dad,    and I believe in you
 
 
[Verse]
  G                                  G
I don't believe that heaven waits for only those who congregate
  G                                  G
I like to think of God as love, he's down below, he's up above
     D
He's watching people everywhere, he knows who does and doesn't care
  G
And I'm an ordinary man, sometimes I wonder who I am
 
 
[Chorus]
        C             C      G             G7
But I believe in love,  I believe in music

I believe in magic,    and I believe in you
 
 
[Bridge]
        C                                 C
Well, I know with all my certainty what's going on with you and me
     G          G         D    D               G        G
Is a good thing.     It's true,   I believe in you
 
 
[Verse]
  G                                  G
I don't believe virginity is as common as it used to be
  G                                  G
In working days and sleeping nights, that black is black and white is white
     D
That Superman and Robin Hood are still alive in Hollywood
     G
That gasoline's in short supply, the rising cost of getting by
 
 
[Chorus]
        C              C       G                  G7
But I believe in love,     I believe in old folks
             D         D7                   G       G7
I believe in children,     and I believe in you
        C             C       G              G7
But I believe in love,    I believe in babies

A treasure for the poor to find.

Lord I hope this day is good
 
I'm feeling empty and misunderstood
 G7
I should be thankful Lord I know I should
    F                G7     C
But Lord I hope this day is good
 
 
Lord  have you forgotten me
 
I've been praying to you faithfully
G7
I'm not saying I'm a righteous man
    F               G7   C
But Lord I hope you understand
 
Am                   Em    F          C
I don't need fortune and I don't need fame
Am            Em            F             C
Send down the thunder Lord  send down the rain
Am              Em            F            C
But when you're planning just how it should be
G7          F       G7
Plan a good day for me
 
Repeat #1
 
Am                   Em        F       C
You've been the king since the dawn of time
Am           Em          F           C
All that I'm asking is a little less crime
Am          Em           F        C
It might be hard for the Devil to do
G7              F        G7
But it would be easy for you
 
Repeat #1

If Hollywood Don’t Need You Honey I Still Do Guitar Chords & Lyrics
A                           E               F#m
Well, you know I'm not much good at writin' letters 
   D                              E
So I gave up and decided that I'd call 
A                  E                F#m
No, there's really not much news to tell you 
D                                      E
Things back here, they never change at all 
F#m                   D             A
It snowed today, it's cold here for November 
F#m            D                  E
But I hear the weather's warm out there
 
 
        A               D
Oh, and if you see Burt Reynolds
          E                  A
Would you shake his hand for me
                   D                 E
And tell old Burt, I've seen all his movies 
        A                 D
Well, I hope you make the big time 
  E                     A
I hope your dreams come true 
       D
But if Hollywood don't need you 
E              F#m
Honey, I still do
 
     A                 E           F#m
Last night I drove the truck to Amarillo 
D                                 E
Some friends and I had a laugh or two 
A                   E              F#m
But lately we don't cut up like we used to 
D                                    E
'Cause all that I can think about is you 
F#m            D                  A
I know this is what you've always wanted 
F#m                 D             E
But I know now that all I want is you 
 
        A               D
Oh, and if you see Burt Reynolds
          E                  A
Would you shake his hand for me
                   D                 E
And tell old Burt, I've seen all his movies 
        A                 D
Well, I hope you make the big time 
  E                     A
I hope your dreams come true 
       D
But if Hollywood don't need you 
E              F#m
Honey, I still do
 
   D
If Hollywood don't need you 
E              A
Honey, I still do
