Play this on the jukebox and listen to a lot of other versions too.
You can also download all the different musical versions, in the order they went up.

Check Andrea’s Facebook page and YouTube channel for more info.

Original songs by North Carolina mom and songwriter Andrea Rosal, and other musical creations by the Rosal family (most often Andrea and her daughter Marta, her favorite duet partner). Her songwriting is a developing passion of inspiration, craft, mystery, and exercising personal bravery — and hopefully somewhere in all that, connection! Thank you for sharing in these moments!

(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
