From Janis: As they say, this isn’t Mark’s first rodeo, but it is his first video. Kudos to him and his friends, because I don’t know how to make one! A friend of Jeff Lake’s, whose own version inspired much joy, the lovely slide dobro and energy make this a fun listen.

(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


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
