From Janis: Natalia and I have toured together throughout the United States and Japan, with me solo and with Tom Paxton and Robin Bullock as a group. She’s a wonderful singer, slide player, performer, and good company to boot. You should check out her artwork, also! The third person to join this project, her version made me extremely happy.

(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
