This song
was a Billboard Hit!
Well, my soul checked out missing as I sat listening
To the hours and minutes tickin' away
Yeah, just sittin' around waitin' for my life to begin
While it was all just slippin' away

And I'm tired of waitin' for tomorrow to come
For that train to come roarin' 'round the bend
I got a new suit of clothes and a pretty red rose
And a woman I can call my friend

These are better days, baby
Yeah, there's better days shining through
These are better days, baby
Better days with a girl like you

Well, I took a piss at fortune's sweet kiss
It's like eatin' caviar and dirt
It's a sad funny ending to find yourself pretending
You're a rich man in a poor man's shirt

Now my ass was draggin' when from a passin' gypsy wagon
Your heart like a diamond shone
Tonight I'm layin' in your arms carvin' lucky charms
Out of these hard luck bones

These are better days, baby
These are better days, it's true
These are better days, baby
There's better days shining through

Now a life of leisure and a pirate's treasure
Don't make much for tragedy
But it's a sad man, my friend, who's livin' in his own skin
And can't stand the company

Every fool's got a reason to feelin' sorry for himself
And turnin' his heart to stone
Tonight this fool's halfway to heaven and just a mile outta hell
And I feel like I'm comin' home

These are better days, baby
There's better days shining through
These are better days, baby
Better days with a girl like you

These are better days, baby
These are better days, it's true
These are better days
Better days are shining through

These are better days, baby
Ah, better days, it's true
These are better days, baby
Better days are shining through

These are better days, baby
Ah, better days, it's true
These are better days, baby
Better days are shining through
