All of my life I been searching
Walking on easy ground
Son of my father
Never being pushed around

I've got the Lord in my shadow
Devil in my blood
If you fool me baby
I'm gonna get you like a good man should

Like a gypsy, a traveler I was born
A vagabond without virtue, I was blessed before the dawn
I greet the morning, with my back against the sun
You'll never see me baby
'cause I'm always on the run

I got time on my side
I don't need nobody to hold me
Time on my side
Sister Bluebird told me
Time on my side
Lean upon my shoulder
I'm bound to settle down
Before I get much older

Born on the dark side,
Where the sun man never shows
I never had nobody to cry when I was gone
I'm always in the moonwalk,
I got the drifter in my blood
If you fool me baby, gonna get you like a good man should

I got time on my side
I don't need nobody to hold me
Time on my side
Sister Bluebird told me
Time on my side
Lean upon my shoulder
I'm bound to settle down
Before I get much older

Time on my side
I don't need nobody to hold me
Time on my side
Sister Bluebird told me
Time on my side
Lean upon my shoulder
I'm bound to settle down
Before I get much older

Time on my side
I don't need, I don't need nobody
Time on my side
I got the Lord, the Lord in my shadow
Time on my side
Lean upon my shoulder
Time on my side,
I don't need no one
Time on my side,
I got the devil, the devil in my blood
Time on my side,
I don't need it anymore...
