about

Life is made up of cycles. It's up to us how we live within those cycles.

lyrics

They met in the winter of the year of the great snowstorm • His beard was full, and the curls in her hair were long • They built a fire, and watched the snow fall • She was sippin’ tea • He was sippin’ coffee • And they sang “It’s gonna be a good year”

They headed out west in the spring of the great sandstorm • His face was shaved, and the color in her eyes was blue • They built a home, and watched the wheat grow • She was knittin’ sweaters • He was splittin’ wood • And they sang, “It’s gonna be a good year”

Baby, it’s gonna be a good year • Oh my honey • Oh my dear • I ain’t got nothin’ to fear • ‘Cause baby, it’s gonna be a good year

They struck it rich in the summer of the great gold rush • His face was tan, and the soles in her shoes were worn • They built a town, and watched the settlers roll in • She danced around • He played a sweet song • And they sang, “It’s gonna be a good year”

Baby, it’s gonna be a good year • Oh my honey • Oh my dear • I ain’t got nothin’ to fear • ‘Cause baby, it’s gonna be a good year

They lost it all in the fall of the great stock crash • His face was hard, and the dress that she wore was torn • They built a wagon, and headed back east • She was patchin’ up her dress • He was patchin’ up his pride • And he looked at her with a twinkle in his eye • And sang, “Next year is gonna be a good year”

Baby, it’s gonna be a good year • Oh my honey • Oh my dear • I ain’t got nothin’ to fear • ‘Cause baby, it’s gonna be a good year
