Album The Gene Pitney Story. Twenty-Four Hours From Tulsa Lyrics. Dearest darling I had to write to say that I won't be home any more For something happened to me While I was driving home and I'm not the same any more. 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 the small hotel 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 I hate to do this to you But I love somebody new What can I do When I can never, never, never go home again?
