Back In The Good Old Days (John Hollohan)

I used to work on the line,
building new Chevrolets
One piece at a time,
I got paid a good wage;
We had money left over
when the bills were all paid,
Back in the good old days.

Had a blue-green sedan
loaded down with chrome,
A wife and two kids
and a home of our own;
We never thought then
anything could go wrong,
Back in the good old days.

But something went wrong
in the land of the free,
The milk and honey's all gone
that used to run free;
Things sure ain't like
they used to be,
Back in the good old days.

My kids graduated
with master's degrees,
But they can't find a job;
so they're walking the street
Doing menial work
for the minimum wage,
Not like the good old days.

My wife and I sit
on the porch all alone,
We're still making payments
on this modest old home;
With my hours cut back,
and my savings all gone
That I made in the good old days.

Something went wrong
in the land of the free,
The milk and honey's all gone
that used to run free;
Things sure ain't like
they used to be,
Back in the good old days.

Something went wrong,
in the land of the free,
The milk and honey's all gone
that used to run free;
Things sure ain't like
they used to be,
Back in the good old days.


I sure miss those good old days.
