Dearest darling I had to write to say that I won't be home anymore
cause something happened to me while I was driving home
And I'm not the same anymore

[Chorus]
Oh I was only 24 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

[Chorus]

She took me to a cafe I asked her if she would stay
She said okay

[Chorus]

Oh the jukebox started to play
And night time turned into day as we were dancing 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 let her out of my arms

[Chorus]

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
