George Jones – Are The Good Times Really Over (I Wish A Buck Was Still Silver) lyrics

I wish a buck was still silver
It was back when the country was strong
Back before Elvis, 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
Are the good times really over for good?

Are we rolling downhill like a snowball headed for Hell?
With no kind of chance for the flag or the Liberty Bell
Wish a Ford and a Chevy could still last ten years, like they should
Is the best of the free life behind us now
Are the good times really over for good?

I wish Coke was still Cola
And a 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 still cooked [Incomprehensible] wood
Is the best of the free life behind us now
Are the good times really over for good?

Are we rolling downhill like a snowball headed for Hell?
With no kind of chance for the flag or the Liberty Bell
Wish a Ford and a Chevy could still last ten years, like they should
Is the best of the free life behind us now
Are the good times really over for good?

Stop rolling downhill 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 still last ten years, like they should
'Cause the best of the free life is still yet to come
The good times ain't over for good
