That's The Way It's Gonna Be (Bob Gibson/Phil Ochs)

So you say that all the good times are gone
So you say this rain will keep rainin' on
I'll walk along with my head held high
Finding that song I'll sing it to the sky
Maybe I'm wrong but I'll live till I die
That's the way it's gonna be, wait and see

Even though you say the devil knocks at my door
And you say my ship will not reach the shore
I've got a will and a thousand ways
I've got a dream of a thousand better days
I've got a smile that just stays and stays
That's the way it's gonna be, wait and see

Even though you say I've reached the end of the road
And you say my tides are all runnin' low
Victory is waiting for me round the bend
I won't stay down for the count of ten
I've said it before and I'll say it again
That's the way it's gonna be, wait and see

Even though you say that all the good times are gone
And you say this rain will keep rainin' on
I'll walk along with my head held high
Finding that song and I'll sing it to the sky
Maybe I'm wrong but I'll live till I die
That's the way it's gonna be, wait and see
