those days will come again

words and music by

john greene



a man came on the tv and told me that he knew

about how the Cubans felt in 1962

if you preach of the glory of war you should have lived in fear

of a man with a button saying 'god bless all here'


we showed our elders how to live in the peace that they had struggled for

and were rewarded with ridicule for the clothes we wore

the worlds forgetting all the battles we fought, all the things we did

what we taught our parents then, now we must teach our kids


how I miss those moptop days, when it seemed so black and white

to stand up for your principles, to fight for what was right

those days will come again
