Better days are coming by and by
Don't you get down hearted, don't you cry
Troubles will be over, all our joys come over
Better days are coming by and by

Don't you know better days are coming by and by
Don't you get down hearted, don't you cry
Sorrows will be over, all our joys come over
Better days are coming by and by

It can't be this way always
A train must come, a train must come
There must be some brighter days
We'll have fun, we'll have fun, yeah

Better days are coming by and by
Don't you get down hearted, don't you cry
Troubles will be over, all our joys come over
Better days are coming by and by

Things get rough, your friends get few
Don't you cry, don't you cry
Change your flock, we'll come for you
We'll get high, we'll get high, yeah

Better days are coming by and by
Don't you get down hearted, hearted, don't you cry
Troubles will be over, all our joys come over
Better days are coming by and by

Don't you know better days are coming by and by
So don't you get down hearted, don't you cry
Troubles will be over
