GUEST,bob ADD: Joseph's Dream/Get No Better (John Hartford) (23) ADD: Get No Better (John Hartford) 07 Jan 11


these are the actual lyrics from "no one knows what you do".
Song on the CD is called "Joseph's Dream"

I'm pretty sure these are right... these are 100% by hand


Get No Better
(John Hartford)

he caressed her breast; she "hi-de-di'd" his thigh
and it billowed on the pillow amongst the wine bottle and the cheese
he took a poloriod picutre her, so naughty in her slip, yes he did
n'just when he thought it couldn't get no better than it did



R:
just when you think it can get no better than it does
it's always so much better than it ever was
it seems like all them good thing come at once, yes it do
and just when you think it can't get any better than it does



well, they knew what they liked they were neither one of them naive
she said I'll probably get in trouble but this time I don't care
well I should go to work but I'd rather be with you instead
and (sic[ it ]) just when I though it couldn't get no better than it did

R:
just when you think it can get no better than it does
well, it's always so much better than it ever was
seems like all them good things come at once, yes it do
and just when you think it can't get any better than it does



a'she taught school and he played the five-string banjo
she lived here in town and he traveled the whole world wide
well'a she a packed a lunch, brought the wine; he drove the car and scored a lid, hmm
and just when they thought it couldn't get no better than it did.

and just when you think it can't get no better than it does




it was a perfect day, for a dalliance and a picnic
and a riverbank was an excellent place for love
well, the sun was a shinin' and the birds were a singin' overhead (bird sound effects)
and just when I thought it couldn't get no better than it did
