Are The Good Times Really Over (I Wish A Buck Was Still Silver) (Album Version)

Merle Haggard

I wish a buck was still silver
It was back when the country was strong
Back before Elvis, before Vietnam war came along
Before the Beatles and yesterday
When a man could still worked still would
Best of the free life behind us now
And are the good times really over for good

Are we rolling down hill like a snowball headed for hell
With no kinda chance for the flag or the liberty bell
Wish a ford and a Chevy
Would still last ten years like they should
Is the best of the free life behind us know
And are the good times really over for good

I wish coke was still cola
And a joint was a bad place to be
It was back before Nixon lied to us all on tv
Before microwave ovens
When a girl still cooked and still would
Is the best of the free life behind us know
And are the good times really over for good

Are we rolling down hill like a snowball headed for hell
With no kinda chance for the flag or the liberty bell
Wish a ford and a Chevy
Would still last ten years like they should
Is the best of the free life behind us know
And are the good times really over for good

Stop rolling down hill like a snowball headed for hell
Stand up for the flag and let's all ring the liberty bell
Let's make a ford and a Chevy
That would still last ten years like they should
But the best of the free is still yet to come
And the good times ain't over for good
