Take Me Back to Tulsa
Bob Wills Lyrics


Where's that gal with the red dress on? Some folks called her Dinah
Stole my heart away from me, way down in Louisiana
Take me back to Tulsa, I'm too young to marry
Take me back to Tulsa, I'm too young to marry

Aw, here comes Mr. Sprinkler, now
Aw, that's right, yes, yes
Come on, now
Take us back to Tulsa, man
Yeah, look out, Tommy

Little bee sucks the blossom, big bee gets the honey
Darkie raises the cotton, white man gets the money
Take me back to Tulsa, I'm too young to marry
Take me back to Tulsa, I'm too young to marry

Aw, look out, man!
Mr. Louis Tierney, now
Aw, turn it on, boy, turn it on

Walk and talk, Suzie, walk and talk, Suzie
Walk and talk, Suzie, walk and talk, Suzie
Take me back to Tulsa, I'm too young to marry
Take me back to Tulsa, I'm too young to marry

Aw, now, now
Yes sir, Mr. Leon

We always wear this great big smile, never do look sour
Travel all over the country, playing by the hour
Take me back to Tulsa, I'm too young to marry
Take me back to Tulsa, I'm too young to marry

Take me back to Tulsa, I'm too young to marry
Take me back to Tulsa, I'm too young to wed thee

Take me back to Tulsa, I'm too young to marry
Take me back to Tulsa, I'm too young to marry

Walk and talk, Suzie, walk and talk, Suzie
Walk and talk, Suzie, walk and talk, Suzie
Take me back to Tulsa, I'm too young to marry
Take me back to Tulsa, I'm too young to marry

We always wear this great big smile, never do look sour
Travel all over the country, playing by the hour
Take me back to Tulsa, I'm too young to marry
Take me back to Tulsa, I'm too young to marry

Take me back to Tulsa, I'm too young to marry
Take me back to Tulsa, I'm too young to wed thee

River Boat version of this song:

Well He don't plant taters,
No, He don't plant cotton,
but it's Them that plants 'em,
that is soon forgotten.

Ol' Man River's Rollin'
Ol' Man River's Rollin'
Ol' Man River's Rollin'
Yeah, Ol' Man River's Rollin'

My grandmother had Alzheimer's ...she didn't talk much but sometimes she would sing "whos that girl with the red dress on some folks call her Dina" that was when I was 12 I'm 29 now. Today I finally remembered the lyrics she sang!!! I found the song !! How awesome is this

Andy Trullinger

It’s very awesome, Melissa! God bless you and Crystal. 🕊🙏🏻🎹

This song popped in my head this morning and I whistled it for a bit before I remembered enough to YouTube it. I’m 72 now and my memory of the old songs are a treasure.

Crystal Price

My mom had Alzheimer’s. She absolutely loved Bob Wills and his Playboys. Thank you for sharing your lovely story 💗

As a kid growing up in Toronto in the early 70's I'd play my Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple records but I'd also spin my Bob Wills and Hank Williams records. My friends would say, "what the f@#k is that? I love Bob Wills! What an amazing talent.

George Loyie

I was raised with this kind of music playing in our house. I still love it today!

Chuck Bradley

Bob Wills the King of Western Swing. This is what fiddle music is supposed to sound like. Makes you want to twirl a pretty girl around the dance floor.
