Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers – Turning Point lyrics

Written by: Tom Petty

Black cloud on the sun
I turn my collar up
I walked from your door
Out to Mccounty road

Oh yeah, what luck
Time ain't been rough on us
And right then oh boy,
We hit the turning point

Three, four years or more
My life was on the floor
Blind faith hangin' in
Hungry and tired of it

Oh yeah, bad luck
They had taken over us
And right then oh boy,
We hit the turning point

She's had to follow me
Up and down these empty street
Whisky on her breath
Trying to give the world a test

Oh yeah, bad luck they had taken over us
And right then oh boy, we hit the turning point
