My daddy told me stories about
How this country was when I was just a kid
How people took the time to care
And took a lot of pride in the things they did
And I can't help but wonder
What happened to that spirit
Down through the years
It is something we have forgotten
Or something that we just don't want to hear

It's a sign of the times we're in
When we can't find the time to help a friend
Or show a little more compassion to 
The problems in each other's lives
We're more concerned with makin' money
Than stayin' home lovin' our family
And I wish I could change the things I see
In the signs of the times

If you need to borrow money now
They want to know how many assets you can claim
It's not like it was back years ago
When Grandpa borrowed money simply on his name
And it sure does seem a pity
But a man's word don't count for much here anymore
And I wish I could turn the clock back to 
The way my daddy said it was before

It's a sign of the times we're in
When we can't find the time to help a friend
Or show a little more compassion to 
The problems in each other's lives
We're more concerned with makin' money
Than stayin' home lovin' our family
And I wish I could change the things I see
In the signs of the times

It's a sign of the times we're in
When we can't find the time to help a friend
Or show a little more compassion to 
The problems in each other's lives
We're more concerned with makin' money
Than stayin' home lovin' our family
And I wish I could change the things I see
In the signs of the times

And I wish I could change the things I see
In the signs of the times
