From Janis: Much beloved within and without their home base of San Diego, "SDWC" are one of the best-known choruses in the country. I spent a fantastic week with them when I was guest artist for their annual fund-raiser, and got to work with current artistic director, Kathleen Hansen, on her beautiful arrangements of my work. Kathleen also faciliated the participation of ASL interpreter Carla Warnock in this project; Carla's work is featured here as well as separately here. Much gratitude to the three generations of women represented in this video, not only for doing my song, but for their motto: "Come for the music, stay for the heart." 


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
