about

A song I wrote many years back that I recently brought to the band. An odd kind of mutated reggae swing feel to the rhythm. After singing the track, Suzy made the comment about sending it to the Sander's campaign. That gave me the idea of taking snippets of Bernie's speeches and making a collage in the slow section. "Let's do it!"

lyrics

New Day Comin’
by John Beccia

(dm-C-Bb-A7, dm-C-Bb-A7)

dm
There’ll be a new day comin’
A7
When people care about the land
C- A7
And take their destiny in hand
dm-C-Bb-A7
There’ll be a new day comin’

dm
There’ll be a new day comin’
A7
When everyone has all they need
C - A7
Eliminating all the greed
dm-C-Bb-A7
There’ll be a new day comin’ (repeat twice) -

INSTRUMENTAL (chords same as verse)

dm
There’ll be a new day comin’
A7
With no one living on the street
C - A7
When all have work and food to eat
dm-C-Bb-A7-
There’ll be a new day comin’

dm
There’ll be a new day comin’
A7
When every single person’s freed
C - A7
All ethnic races, every creed
dm-C-Bb-A7
There’ll be a new day comin’ (repeat twice) -

SLOW INSTRUMENTAL
(dm--A7--C7--F--Bbmaj7--A7--dm- A7--) -(repeat twice)

dm
There’ll be a new day comin’
A7
When people realize the hour
C - A7
Is time to rise and seize the power
dm-C-Bb-A7-
There’ll be a new day comin’

dm
There’ll be a new day comin’
A7
When there’s no gap ‘tween rich and poor
C - A7
No need for weapons anymore
dm-C-Bb-A7-
There’ll be a new day comin’ - (repeat 3 times) ....

There’ ll be a new day (end on dm )
