      About "Are the Good Times Really Over (I Wish a Buck Was Still Silver)"

      Lyrics for Merle Haggard - "Are the Good Times Really Over (I Wish a Buck Was Still Silver)"

      I wish a buck was still silver and it was back when the country was strong
      Back before Elvis and before the Vietnam war came along
      Before the Beatles and Yesterday when a man could still work and still would
      Is the best of the free life behind us now
      And are the good times really over for good
      Are we rolling downhill like a snowball headed for hell
      With no kinda chance for the flag or the Liberty Bell
      I wish a Ford and a Chevy would still last ten years like they should
      Is the best of the free life behind us now
      And are the good times really over for good

      I wish coke was still cola and joint was a bad place to be
      And it was back before Nixon lied to us all on TV
      Before microwave ovens when a girl could still cook and still would
      Is the best of the free life behind us now
      And are the good times really over for good
      Are we rolling downhill

      Stop rolling downhill like a snowball headed for hell
      Stop for the flag and let's all ring the Liberty Bell
      Let's make a Ford and a Chevy that'll still last ten years like they should
      Cause the best of the free life is still yet to come
      And the good times ain't over for good
