(Rodney Crowell - Emmylou Harris)
I heard the train in the Tulsa night
Calling out my name, looking for a fight
But she's come a long, long way got a longer way to go
So tell me how a train from Tulsa has got a right to know.
And she sings a song so sad and high
And the Tulsa Queen don't ever lie
And she don't care where she goes don't care where she's been
And the Tulsa Queen ain't cryin' cause I won't see you again. hey, hey, hey
And I want to ride like a Tulsa Queen
calling out to you like she calls to me
As far away from Tulsa
As these ten wheels can be.
--- Instrumental ---
Lately I speak your name too loud
Each time it comes up in a crowd
And I know it when I do
The Tulsa Queen and you are gone...
