From Janis: Jim Hoke put me in touch with Roger, who I'd never met. When I asked him for a bio, he wrote "Roger Lienke is a crossbred Okie/Yankee who writes, sings and plays music, while pondering the question, 'which ones are the better times'." Looking at his website, I'm mystified, intrigued, and grateful that his deconstruction of my song brings a whole other interpretation to it. If you're expecting "pretty" I'd suggest you move on, because Roger's version speaks to the frustration, fear, and anger many of us are feeling right now.

BETTER TIMES WILL COME (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
 

CHORUS 

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
 

CHORUS 

REPEAT CHORUS 

Oh, better times will come
