2nd Place
“When The Good Times Come Again”
RG Shaw
Shepherdstown, West Virginia

When the good times come again, I’ll be waiting there in line
With my broken-hearted friends,
Men that fortune left behind.
When the good times come again, I hope there’s something there for me.
I’ll be the steady man I use to be,
When the good times come again.

At the edge of town, when the east-bound slows,
All the hobos run from sight.
I’m bedding down with lonesome in my bones.
Does she think of me tonight?

When the good times come again, when my blue moon finally sets.
When I out-live my old regrets.
When the good times come again.

Ring the kettle bells; tell the world it’s Christmas.
If I had her number, I might call.
Had a hard luck spell. But the thing I wish is,
She might see me standing tall.

When the good times come again, I’ll be waiting there in line
With my broken-hearted friends,
Men that fortune left behind.
When the good times come again, I hope there’s something there for me.
I’ll be the steady man I use to be,
When the good times come again.

I’ll have news and a few bucks I could send,
When the good times come again.
