By Tom Petty

When the time gets right
I'm gonna pick you up
And take you far way from trouble my love
Under a big ol' 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 ride down the Kings Highway

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

Lover, I await the day
Good fortune comes our way
