Forward

by Tom Swift

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
