Hang Me In The Tulsa County Stars

originally by John Moreland, adapted by Tyler Preston

Hang me in the Tulsa County stars
Hang me in the Tulsa County stars
Meet me where I land if I slip and fall too far
Hang me in the Tulsa County stars

I don’t want to go back down to earth
No, I don’t want to go back down to earth
My heart is growing heavy from the ever-endless hurt
And I don’t want to go back down to earth

Babe, I know this world will leave you cold and drive you mad
Make you homesick for a home you never had
Burning out the good with all the bad

So darling let the charmers leave the room
They’re drowning out the Nashville moon
I just want to know exactly who you are
Then hang me in the Tulsa County stars

Find me in the old Apache sky
Find me in the old Apache sky
When it feels like nothing’s real and no one’s standing at your side
Find me in the old Apache sky

And I’ll set ablaze the secrets we concealed
Yes I’ll set ablaze the secrets we conceal
If I could make you feel the way you make me feel
I’d set ablaze the secrets we conceal

Babe, I know this world will have the wolves outside your door
Make you leave all that you love to fight a war
And never tell you what you’re dying for

So darling let the charmers leave the room
Let em have the Nashville moon
I just want to know exactly who you are
Then hang me in the Tulsa County stars
Oh, just hang me in the Tulsa County stars
