  • Lyrics: Better Days There were very few at the station the day our jobs got on that train They were going to sunny Mexico The sky overhead threatened rain And further on down that street A man got the figures just right He said, “Some will prosper and some will lose before we get out of this night.” CHORUS You get a man to work for a dollar a day he'll work by the light of the moon I read in a paper that blew by my way: Better days are coming back soon. Better days are coming back soon. A kid out of school at the mall is handing out his resume It's got a list of the dreams in his head but the look on his face seems to say: CHORUS You get a man to work for a dollar a day he'll work by the light of the moon I read in a paper that blew by my way: Better days are coming back soon. Better days are coming back soon. BRIDGE Way back in ‘88 they jacked up the interest rates now look at the mess that we’re in. Do your own inspection; you’ll find the connection hiding inside of the spin Now Joseph and Mary have parted; the tension, it just wore them out. I’ve seen her tears falling all day; and I’ve heard him just want to shout: You get a man to work for a dollar a day he'll work by the light of the moon I read in a paper that blew by my way: Better days are coming back soon. Better days are coming back, they’re coming back soon Better days are coming back soon.

About Paul Grady

Been writing songs for many years. Had a few recorded including "Another Pot O' Tea" (Anne Murray, Emmylou Harris). Play at church on Sunday and the occasional coffeehouse, It's a joy...
