"Good News" as written by and Josephine Foster....
Good news is a-comin'
Good news is a-gone
Good news, ya got me hummin'
Bad news, gets my song
And my tear down the drain
Out of my ear
To the sewer in the sky-bo
Rocky cheer me lacky-lo
Rocky cheer me lacky-lo.

Give to the east
Give to the west
Give to the boy
Who treats you the best

Who troubles you less
Cleans up his mess
Doesn't get fresh
Who's patience-blessed
Got rhythm in his waist
And hair on his chest
Nothin' to confess
Puts your mind at rest
Puts your mind at rest!

Good news is a-comin
Good news is a-gone
Good news, sing along
Good news, got me hummin'
Bad news, when yer gone
'Cause I miss ya I just dried
My hankertissue
Can't you stick around a little bit
Until I sing my song
Can't you stick around a little bit
Until I sing my song

    General Commentprobaly the most blues-y song on the album. I can even picture the ladies working the field and singing this song altogether.
