Are the good times really over

I wish a buck was still silver
And it was back when country was strong
Back before Elvis and before Viet Nam war came along
Before the Beatles and “Yesterday”
When a man could still work and still would
Is the best of the free life behind us now?
And are the good times really over for good?
Are we rollin’ downhill like a snowball headed for hell
With no kind of chance for the flag or the Liberty Bell
I wish a Ford and a Chevy would still last ten years
Like they should
Is the best of the free life behind us now?
And are the good times really over for good?

*****

I wish Coke was still cola
And a joint was a bad place to be
And it was back before Nixon lied to us
All on TV
Before microwave ovens
When a girl could still cook
And still would
Is the best of the free life behind us now?
And are the good times really over for good?
Are we rollin’ downhill like a snowball headed for hell
With no kind of chance for the flag or the Liberty Bell
I wish a Ford and a Che…

I wish a buck was still silver, it was back when the country was strong,

Back before Elvis, before the Vietnam war came along,

Before the Beatles and “”Yesterday””, when a man could still work, still would,

is the best of the free life behind us now, and are the good times really over for good?

And are we rollin’ downhill like a snowball headed for hell.

With no kind of chance for the flag or the liberty bell.

I wish a ord or a hevy, would still last ten years like they should.

Is the best of the free life behind us now, are the good times really over for good?

I wish oke was still cola, and a joint was a bad place to be.

It was back before Nixon lied to us all on TV.

Before microwave ovens, when a girl could still cook, and still would,

Is the best of the free life behind us now,

and are the good times really over for good?

And are we rollin’ downhill like a snowball headed for hell.

With no kind of chance for the flag or the liberty bell.

I wish a ord or a hevy, would still last ten years like they should.

Is the best of the free life behind us now, are the good times really over for good?

Stop rollin’ downhill like a snowball headed for hell.

Stand up for the flag and let’s all ring the liberty bell.

Let’s make a ord or a hevy, that’ll still last ten years like they should.

ause the best of the free life is still yet to come, the good times ain’t over for good?
