Tokyo Oklahoma
By John Anderson
Tabbed By Larry Mofle
10/4/2008


A
Tokyo, Oklahoma is on the line
A
Is this Hiroshima seven-nine-eight-o-five?
         A
I have a person to person for miss Soo-Ling-Foo
        A                                  G
This is Tulsa, Oklahoma, ma'am, is that you?
   A
"I have your party waitin' sir," the operator said
   A
Tokyo's on the line in Tulsa, go ahead
  A
I started to smile when she said to me
         A
"This is Soo-Ling-Foo, who's calling please?"
        A
This is Tok-San Itchy-Ban, Soo-Ling-Foo
         A
And your number one cowboy's missing you


   F#m
Tokyo, Oklahoma is lonely tonight
A
Pretty geisha girl, you are on my mind
A                              F#m
Dark clouds hangin' over Tulsa skies
   A               E        A
Tokyo, Oklahoma is lonely tonight


Oh well, we talked and we talked on into the night
I was on the early mornin' western red-eye flight
Due to turbulent weather, we were way overtime
When we taxied into Tokyo's terminal D-9

I stepped off of Pan-Am's flight twenty-two
I kept on lookin' but I couldn't find Soo-Ling-Foo
I was headed for the lounge the arrow pointed to
When an oriental angel stepped from the ladies room

She wrapped her arms around me and she started to smile
When I said, "Pretty geisha girl, won't you be my bride?"
She said, "Tok-San Itchy-Ban, Soo-Ling-Foo
Be honorable number one wife to you"


Chorus 2:
Tokyo, Oklahoma is smilin' tonight
Smell the cherry blossoms, hear the weddin' bells chime
Soon we'll be livin' on Tulsa time
Tokyo, Oklahoma is smilin' tonight, that's right
