"Something Good This Way Comes" as written by and Jakob Dylan....
Got my window open wide
Got my window open wide
Got a good woman by my side
Got a good woman by my side

Now this kind of day
Has no night
Yeah
This kind of day
Has no night
Ain't got much on my mind
Ain't got much on my mind

[Chorus]
'Cause I know
Something good this way comes

Now watching the streets
Filling up
Watching the streets filling up
In the shade of the summer sun
In the shade of the summer sun

Got sweet apple pie on the stove
Got sweet apple pie on the stove
The birds they're all flyin' low
The birds they're all flyin' low

[Chorus]

The trouble, doll
Is not moving mountains, but
Digging the ground that you're on
If it's true
That good fortune gives no chase
We got just what it takes

Collar up on my coat
Collar up on my coat
Trucks are pullin'
In for the show
Trucks are pullin'
In for the show

Grasshopper jump in the road
Grasshopper jump in the road
Kids they're all running home
The kids
They're all running home

'Cause they know
Something good this way comes
Yeah
Something good this way comes

The trouble, doll
Is not moving mountains, but
Digging the ground
That you're on
If it's true
That good fortune
Gives no chase
We got just what it takes
Got my window open wide
Got my window open wide
Got a good woman by my side
Got a good woman by my side

[Chorus]

Yeah
Something good this way comes
Yeah
Something good this way comes

    General CommentVery nice song...to me this song captures those times when you actually manage to stop and observe the simple yet profoundly beautiful moments in life...the company of your lover, smell of apple pie, jumping grasshoppers...those refreshing moments that actually make life worth living.

    General CommentThis is a great song. Judging by the video, it's about just staring out at the world optimistically. No worries, no thoughts. Just watching.

    General CommentA nice simple song.... about nice simple things in life.
    Something about it makes me think of karma!

    Go Jakob!

    General CommentThe whole song is alluding to Ray Bredbury's novel "Something wicked this way comes". I think it's a result after reading the book. Even the kids and grasshoppers... show, everything.

    General CommentI may be wrong, but is there anyway the "Something good this way comes" will be having a good woman by his side?
