Yesterday I sent copies of my new song, "Better Times Will Come", to a group of musician friends. I asked if they would record it, and/or make a video, then let me post it. First one came in this morning - the wonderful John Gorka singing it here.

John will be sending me an mp3 to post on my own site for free downloading; we'll start working on the page this week. THANK YOU JOHN! In the meanwhile, feel free to visit my store for lyrics, chords, and other downloads..

 

BETTER TIMES WILL COME
(Janis Ian)

Better times, better times will come.
Better times, better times will come.
When this world learns to live as one,
oh, better times will come

When we greet each dawn without fear
knowing loved ones soon will be near
When the winds of war
cannot blow any more
Oh, better times will come

Better times, better times will come.
Better times, better times will come.
When this world learns to live as one,
oh, better times will come

Though we live each day as our last
we know someday soon it will pass
We will dance, we will sing
in that never-ending spring
Oh, better times will come

Better times, better times will come.
Better times, better times will come.
When this world learns to live
as one, oh, better times will come

Better times, better times will come.
Better times, better times will come.
When this world learns to live as one,
oh, better times will come
Oh, better times will come
