lyrics

Right on Time
(©K. Gordon/G. Owen)

I got 57 dollars, 400 miles
A little prayer to whisper to the ceiling tiles
A cold clear morning blaring through the motel blinds
I hear the call but the speaker’s blown
and I’m a long way from home
I’ll be there right on time

Two kids and a wife, that makes three
People who don’t know what to make of me
Blowing through the doors with my four chords and my rhymes
Chasing down the next hundred bucks
Dying for love, praying for luck
I’ll be there right on time

I’m gonna be there—right on time
Gonna be there—right on time
Come on trouble, tell me what you know
I've heard it all so long ago
I'm gonna be there, right on time

Sometimes I wake up and don’t know where I am,
North of Baltimore, south of Destrahan
Dreaming my lover was with me here in 209
And I’m not sure just where I’m bound
But I sure am covering ground
And I’ll be there right on time

I’m gonna be there—right on time
Gonna be there—right on time
Gold streets and pearly gates
Someday heaven won’t have to wait
I’m gonna be there, right on time
Right on time
