TUCUMCARI (Mark McIntyre / William Olofson) Jimmie Rodgers - 1959 Twelve more miles to Tucumcari I've been hurrying there To the gal I'm gonna marry With the yellowest hair Left, right, march along I just gotta get home (Just gotta get home) Ten more miles to Tucumcari Then I'll never more roam (Tucumcari, Tucumcari, I just gotta get home) Eight more miles to Tucumcari It's the fourth of July Been three years in January Since I kissed her goodbye Left, right, march along I've just gotta get home (Just gotta get home) Six more miles to Tucumcari Then I'll never more roam (Tucumcari, Tucumcari, I just gotta get home) Four more miles to Tucumcari Not much further to go Got no time to waste or tarry She'll be waitin' I know Left, right, march along I've just gotta get home (Just gotta get home) Two more miles to Tucumcari Then I'll never more roam (Tucumcari, Tucumcari, I just gotta get home) Here I am in Tucumcari Found my yellow-haired gal Just in time to see her marry With my very best pal Left, right, march along Guess I better be gone (I better be gone) A thousand miles from Tucumcari I'll be rambling on (Tucumcari, Tucumcari, I'll be rambling on) A hundred miles from Tucumcari Down in Santa Fe Fell in love with a girl named Mary Gee I'm happy today No more marching now Found my honeycomb (Found my honeycomb) I've forgotten Tucumcari No more reason to roam (Tucumcari, Tucumcari) I've forgotten Tucumcari No more reason to roam (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - October 2005)
