From Janis: I try not to play favorites, but it's inevitable, and I have to admit that Jess Leary is one of my absolute favorite co-writers. Together we've written about a dozen songs, from "This Train Still Runs" to "Jolene". Hopefully there are more to come. Originally from Boston, MA, now based in Nashville, Jess has had more country top tens than most people I know. As strong as she may be in that area, she can easily morph to other forms and has always been able to adapt to whatever I may throw at her. She's also one of twelve women recently featured in the upcoming documentary "Invisible: Gay Woman in Southern Music". Great guitarist, rhythmic and percussive, she's always worth a listen.


Words & music 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

Oh, better times will come
