Verse:
You can't [A6add9]live without hope that things will [G]change for the [D/F#]better
You can't [Em7/B]live without the dream of someone [G]reading your [Bmadd11]letter
We've had [A6add9]dust storms before and [G]spit out the [D/F#]dirt
We've [Em7/B]had droughts before, but [G]none quite like [Bmadd11]this
We've had [A6add9]winds that cut up your [G]face all to [D/F#]pieces
Black [Em7/B]blizzards that stripped all the [G]paint off your [Bmadd11]car
[A6add9]Fires like twisters, no [G]sisters of [D/F#]mercy
They [Em7/B]come with no warning, [G]only that [Bmadd11]sound
[Em]God is roaring drunk and [G]out on the [Bmadd11]town[F#9] [A9]
Chorus:
[D]Next year, [G]everything will come [D]good
The [Em7/B]rains they will fall and will [G]dance on the [Bmadd11]hood
We'll [D]fill up our bellies with [G]plentiful [D]food
We'll [Em7/B]eat, drink, and be [G]merry
Yeah, [D]next year people [Em7/B]wait and see
We're [G]next year people, [Bmadd11]you and me[F#9] [A9] [Bmadd11]
Verse:
[A6add9]Henry got hit by lightening [G]twice in [D/F#]head
He s[Em7/B]tood and walked away, we [G]thought he was [Bmadd11]dead
[A6add9]Now he talks funny, says he's [G]wired to the [D/F#]sky
He [Em7/B]walks for miles and miles, and [G]no one knows [Bmadd11]why
[A6add9]The bank men, they came and wrote [G]things down on[D/F#] paper
We [Em7/B]all went outside and [G]just stood aroun[Bmadd11]d
[A6add9]We were glad when they left, they brought [G]nothing but [D/F#]heartache
And [Em]the seed we had planted, it [G]stayed in the [Bmadd11]ground [F#9] [A9]
Chorus:
[D]Next year, [G]everything will come [D]good
The [Em7/B]rains they will fall and will [G]dance on the [Bmadd11]hood
We'll [D]fill up our bellies with [G]plentiful [D]food
We'll [Em7/B]eat, drink, and be [G]merry
Yeah, [D]next year people [Em7/B]wait and see
We're [G]next year people, [Bmadd11]you and me[F#9] [A9] [Bmadd11]
Verse:
[A6add9]Dry endless plains, and we've [G]suffered the [D/F#]worst
[Em7/B]Are we being punished or [G]are we just [Bmadd11]cursed?
[A6add9]It's almost ten years, and [G]no drop of [D/F#]rain
[Em7/B]Only mocking blue skies bringing [G]more of the [Bmadd11]same
[A6add9]Our mother was crying when they [G]sent us to [D/F#]stay
With [Em7/B]strangers in a town and we [G]both ran [Bmadd11]away
[A6add9]Back to the dust and see [G]Henry [D/F#]again
[Em7/B]We're creatures of habit, don't you [G]know
[Em]One day we'll r[G]eap what we [Bmadd11]sow.[F#9] [A9]
Chorus:
[D]Next year, [G]everything will come [D]good
The [Em7/B]rains they will fall and will [G]dance on the [Bmadd11]hood
We'll [D]fill up our bellies with [G]plentiful [D]food
We'll [Em7/B]eat, drink, and be [G]merry
Yeah, [D]next year people [Em7/B]wait and see
We're [G]next year people, [Bmadd11]you and me
Yeah, [D]next year people [Em7/B]wait and see
We're [G]next year people, [Bmadd11]you and me[F#9] [A9] [Bmadd11]
