"Kings Highway" as written by and Tom Petty....
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 yeah

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

    General CommentLife kind of sucks sometimes. It'd be great to just say 'screw it' and head out on your own.

    Is it just me, or does anyone else every think of this song while your driving, with whatever street you're on instead of "King's Highway"?
