TRANSCRIPT

Lyrics to At the Right Time from Josh Ritter's album The Animal Years


Under wide blue skies

There's a place to lie

For me and Evelyn to hide tonight

I'll try my best to make a go

But I'm not sure what I don't know

Oh chariots, if you're out there Please swing low


Tell me I got here at the right time

If I did it's probably the first time

No second guesses or secret signs

Tell me I got here at the right time


You're so red in the eyes

Either too low or too high

When I met you you

Were sick but you did not know why

I was a pretty poor cure But my love for you was always sure

The bucket was broken

But the water was pure


Tell me I got here at the right time

If I did it's probably the first time

No second guesses or secret signs

Tell me I got here at the right time
