Tulsa Telephone Book
Tom T. Hall
Capo: 2nd Fret

Intro: E-B-E-B

E  	  	  	  	           A
Have you read any good telephone books lately? 
E                                   B
If you ain't then let me recommend one 
       E                                A
I've already read that Tulsa telephone book through thirteen times 
        E              B                        E
If you don't know any last names it ain't much fun

E             B                         A           E              
Readin' that Tulsa telephone book, can drive a guy insane 
    B               A                       E           B
Especially if that girl you're lookin' for has no last name 
E                                       A                E
I gotta find her and tell her, I don't want our love to end 
                           B              E     B
So I'm readin' that Tulsa telephone book again

E                                              A
Well, I was in Tulsa and didn't have anything goin' 
     E                                      B
She lived in Tulsa and didn't have anything on 
     E                                 A 
She said, My name is Shirley, and I said, My name is T. 
E                   B                   E
I woke up the next mornin' and she was gone

E                                         A
All of the Tulsa operators know my voice now 
E                                       B
And they gotta know how long I've been alone 
    E                                        A
If you meet a girl named Shirley with some ribbons in her hair 
E                               B            E
Would you tell her that she's wanted on the phone

E             B                         A           E 
Readin' that Tulsa telephone book, can drive a guy insane 
     B              A                       E           B
Especially if that girl you're lookin' for has no last name 
E                                       A                E
I gotta find her and tell her, I don't want our love to end 
                           B              E    B
So I'm readin' that Tulsa telephone book again 
E                       B              E  
I'm readin' that Tulsa telephone book again
