Verse:
          A6add9                             G              D/F#
You can't live without hope that things will change for the better
          Em7/B                             G            Bmadd11
You can't live without the dream of someone reading your letter
          A6add9                 G            D/F#       
We've had dust storms before and spit out the dirt 
      Em7/B                    G               Bmadd11
We've had droughts before, but none quite like this
          A6add9                 G           D/F#
We've had winds that cut up your face all to pieces 
      Em7/B                           G              Bmadd11
Black blizzards that stripped all the paint off your car
A6add9                  G          D/F#
Fires like twisters, no sisters of mercy
     Em7/B                 G         Bmadd11
They come with no warning, only that sound 
Em                       G          Bmadd11  F#9 A9
God is roaring drunk and out on the town

Chorus:
D          G                    D
Next year, everything will come good
    Em7/B                         G            Bmadd11
The rains they will fall and will dance on the hood
      D                        G         D
We'll fill up our bellies with plentiful food
      Em7/B              G         
We'll eat, drink, and be merry
      D                Em7/B               
Yeah, next year people wait and see
      G                 Bmadd11           F#9 A9 Bmadd11
We're next year people, you and me

Verse:
A6add9                      G        D/F#
Henry got hit by lightening twice in head
    Em7/B                    G              Bmadd11  
He stood and walked away, we thought he was dead
A6add9                        G            D/F#
Now he talks funny, says he's wired to the sky 
   Em7/B                          G            Bmadd11
He walks for miles and miles, and no one knows why
A6add9                            G             D/F# 
The bank men, they came and wrote things down on paper
   Em7/B                G               Bmadd11
We all went outside and just stood around 
A6add9                                    G           D/F#
We were glad when they left, they brought nothing but heartache
    Em                          G             Bmadd11   F#9 A9
And the seed we had planted, it stayed in the ground 

Chorus:
D          G                    D
Next year, everything will come good
    Em7/B                         G            Bmadd11
The rains they will fall and will dance on the hood
      D                        G         D
We'll fill up our bellies with plentiful food
      Em7/B              G         
We'll eat, drink, and be merry
      D                Em7/B               
Yeah, next year people wait and see
      G                 Bmadd11           F#9 A9 Bmadd11
We're next year people, you and me

Verse:
A6add9                        G            D/F#
Dry endless plains, and we've suffered the worst
Em7/B                    G           Bmadd11
Are we being punished or are we just cursed?
A6add9                     G          D/F#
It's almost ten years, and no drop of rain
Em7/B                            G           Bmadd11
Only mocking blue skies bringing more of the same
A6add9                          G          D/F#
Our mother was crying when they sent us to stay
     Em7/B                      G        Bmadd11      
With strangers in a town and we both ran away
A6add9                   G     D/F#
Back to the dust and see Henry again
Em7/B                               G     
We're creatures of habit, don't you know
Em             G           Bmadd11   F#9 A9
One day we'll reap what we sow.
 
Chorus:
D          G                    D
Next year, everything will come good
    Em7/B                         G            Bmadd11
The rains they will fall and will dance on the hood
      D                        G         D
We'll fill up our bellies with plentiful food
      Em7/B              G         
We'll eat, drink, and be merry
      D                Em7/B               
Yeah, next year people wait and see
      G                 Bmadd11        
We're next year people, you and me
      D                Em7/B               
Yeah, next year people wait and see
      G                 Bmadd11     F#9 A9 Bmadd11
We're next year people, you and me
