When the time gets right, I'm gonna pick you up
And take you far away from trouble my love
Under a big old sky, out in a field of green
There's gotta be something left for us to believe

Oh, I await the day, good fortune comes our way
And we'll ride down the King's Highway, yeah, yeah

No you can't hide out in a six gun town
We want to hold our heads up but we gotta stay down
I don't want to end up in a room all alone
Don't want to end up someone that I don't even know

Lover, I await the day, good fortune comes our way
And we'll ride down the King's Highway, yeah, yeah

Lover, I await the day, good fortune comes our way
And we'll ride down the King's Highway, yeah
Lover I await the day, good fortune comes our way
And we'll ride down the King's Highway, yeah
