Talk About The Good Times

Well I remember when I was as children 
The time the people used to treat the neighbor like a fellow man 
And all their singin' and big prayer meetin's 
When a man was proud to walk up and shake his neighbors hand 


Oh you talk about the good times, 
Talk about the good times 
Oh if you ever needed help a friend was there 
Some good neighbor 
Help lift your burden 
Mmm, and the simple joys of life a friend would share 


Times are harder and the people are changin' 
Now most folks couldn't tell you who their neighbors are 
All their guns are loaded, the front doors are bolted 
Ain't this ol' world takin' hate and fear just a little too far 


Oh you talk about the good times, 
Talk about the good times 
I wish I could go back to the days I'm speakin of 
When a friend would meet you 
And a smile would greet you 
What this ol' world needs now is a little old fashioned love 


My granddaddy God rest his soul now 
Well we had a big long talk together the day he died 
Said son this world is full of hate and venom 
An' I can't wait to leave this ol' place and rest on the other side 


Oh you talk about the good times, talk about the good times 
Talk about the good times 
I'm gonna see all the friends I knew in the good ol' days 
We'll have a big hand shakin' 
An' sit and talk together 
Sit down by the river Jordan and sing our blues away 


Oh you talk about the good times, talk about the good times 
Talk about the good times 
I'm gonna see all the friends I knew in the good ol' days 
We'll have a big hand shakin' 
An' sit and talk together 
Sit down by the river Jordan and sing our blues away 


Oh you talk about the good times, talk about the good times 
Talk about the good times 
I'm gonna see all the friends I knew in the good ol' days 
We'll have a big hand shakin' 
An' sit and talk together 
Sit down by the river Jordan and sing our blues away
