"Brighter Days" as written by and Jj Grey....
Don't stop even for the right thing
Doesn't matter what I say?

My whole world was by that river
Flowin' north to meet the sea each day
I don't want to move away

You look at me and ya say "what's wrong boy?"
What else do you want me to say?

I don't want to leave tomorrow
I been and gone but I belong here now
Your big world can wait another day, ooh yeah

Brighter days where did they go, go, go, go, go, go
(Lord I'll never see) brighter days where did they go, ooh yeah
Brighter days where did they go, go, go, go, go, go
(Lord I'll never see) brighter days, yeah yeah

I am hopeful for where I'm goin'
But I belong in the South

That was where I was born a po' boy
Livin' life like there's no end in sight
Even so I've done without

Brighter days where did they go, go, go, go, go, go
(Lord I'll never see) brighter days where did they go
Brighter days where did they go, go, go, go, go, go
(Lord I'll never see) brighter days where did they go?

Boy you about to hit the bottom
Brighter days where did they go, go, go, go, go, go
(Lord I'll never see) brighter days where did they go go, boy you about to hit the bottom
Brighter days where did they go, go, go, go, go, go (Lord me said have mercy)
Brighter days, hit the bottom, the bottom, the bottom, the bottom baby

Oh , I'll be alone I feel I'm movin' where
And I see you 'bout to hit the bottom
Lord help me move away
And I've seen, and I've seen, Lord yeah

Brighter days where did they go, go, go, go, go, go, baby
Brighter days where did they go, go, who baby, move with me, yeah
Brighter days where did they go, go, go, go, go, go (have mercy)
Brighter days, hit the bottom, bottom, bottom, hm, hey hey hey

Brighter days
Where did they go, yeah
Come on y'all, I know y'all know
Na na na, na na na na na na
Oh oh oh, come on y'all
Na na na, na na na na na na
Just a little bit louder, come on y'all
Na na na, na na na na na na
Lord I feel, a little bit louder
Na na na, na na na na na na
Lord I've changed, Lord I've changed, Lord I've changed
I've changed, I've changed, yeah
Lord I feel, Lord I feel, Lord I feel, Lord I feel, Lord I feel feel feel, say yeah
Lord I've changed, I feel it people, something in my veins
Oh, brighter days, brighter days, brighter days, brighter days, brighter days

    General CommentI played this song over and over as I was packing up after college to leave my laid back life in Mississippi to head for the ambitions of Washington, D.C.

    It will always be one of my favorites.

    General CommentThis is my favorite song on the blackwater album. When I first listened to this album I thought that Lochloosa was a much better album, but now I have no idea what I must have been thinking 'cause this album is great,along with Lochloosa. This song is about going away from home. To an unfamiliar place, and you are nervous about leaving into the unknown(because you may fail).

    General CommentI visited Seattle for two weeks for business. I enjoyed my stay with work. Went around the beautiful city on my own, met a lot of people, had some great food, enjoyed the view of the city and the city (it was spring then). And I met a lady we spent a few days roaming around. She came to see me off at SEA-TACOMA airport before I was leaving Seattle not knowing when I will visit again. We kissed just outside the airport and she drove off with tears in her eyes, tears of joy that we met so suddenly. This was the song I played just the moment i stepped inside airport remising the time spent in the city and with that lady. Listening to this song brings back those memories again, remembering the weather and the drizzle and the feeling of loving every moment spent there.
