The Outsiders the Musical - Tulsa '67 Lyrics


The song is written by Jonathan Clay, Zach Chance and Justin Levine.

PONYBOY:
I've never been out of Tulsa before
I wonder what it would be like
I've never known anybody to leave
Most people get stuck here for life
My brother could've been a football star
People say he had a ticket out
My other brother suffers from a broken heart
From a girl he loves who up and moved away

We got no parents,
We fend for ourselves
There's no one to show us thе way

My brothers are trying,
But they'rе always out
Just working their poor lives away
My name is Ponyboy,
The youngest of the three
I know there's so much more to life
Than what's in front of me
So I sneak into the movies just
To glimpse the other side
Rather take a risk
And see it than to never even try

When I am looking up
And Newman's on the screen
The entire world just melts away
For a moment I'm not worried 'bout a thing
I just sit back and let my favorite movie play

But unlike in the movies
And the books I like to read
Nothing in this town plays out the same
They tell me it was different back
When we could all agree
Somewhere down the line we lost our way

We had places to go, we had things to do
So they took one town and they split it in two
All the money went west,
Take the grease to the east
And a train ran down the belly of the beast
And here we are now,
I'm talkin' to you
When I get to the end,
Tell me what you would do
In a town that's torn in two
What's a Greaser
From the eastside s'pposed to do?

This is Tulsa 1967
And there's just one thing you need to know
You got greasers and socs,
That's how it's always been
And that's probably how it's always gonna go

In the town that's torn in two
And that's probably how it's always gonna go
What's a Greaser from the eastside s'pposed to do?
And that's probably how it's always gonna go
Hey, that's probably how it's always gonna go
