There is a "Good News" in the DigiTrad above. Is that it?

Well, phinque, the Berryman Website is here (click), but that's not one of the songs they have posted. It's on their Some Kinda Funny album. I don't have that album, so I can't transcribe the song for you. I found a very brief sound clip, but not long enough to help you any. The album came out in 1998, later than their most recent songbook, so there isn't a songbook that would help. Good luck.

Good news, chariot's a-coming (repeat twice) And I don't want it to leave me behind.

There's a long white robe in heaven I know (repeat twice) And I don't etc.

(chorus)

There's a golden crown in heaven I know (repeat twice) And I etc.

(Chorus)

Lyrics:

Good news, chariot's comin' good news x2
Good news, chariot's comin' and i don't want to leave me behind

1. There's a long white robe in the heaven I know, [a long white robe in the heaven I know]
There's a long white robe in the heaven I know and I don't want to leave me behind

2. There's a pair of wings...

3. There's a pair of shoes...

4. There's a golden harp...

That's not the song requested. That song was on a Kingston Trio album from long before the Berrymans.

First off, I think the song title by the Berrymans that is being requested is Good News Everybody, NOT just Good News.

I gotta get for a bit.

On 'Some Kinda Funny' the song is called Good News Everybody. I hope the link works.

The Berrryman's website indicates this album should have lyrics in the notes. So does anyone out there have this CD?

GOOD NEWS, EVERYBODY
(c) 1998, Lou & Peter Berryman

I doubt I really got it right, 'Cause it was pretty late at night,
But on the news I could'a sworn I heard them say
All the armies of the nations of the world went on vacation,
After throwing all their bombs & guns away.
    Although it is a mystery, Now's the only time in history,
    That there's not a single war upon the Earth.
    It appears they made a study, that the battlefields were muddy,
    And the laundry bill was more than it was worth.

All the CEO's agreed that they are paid too much indeed,
And gave their salaries to the poor to pay the rent.
Now with everybody fed, and in a warm and comfy bed,
They find that crime is down by 95%.
    Now that crime is so diminished, all the jails that aren't finished,
    They're converting into restaurants & shops.
    It seems that everyone's all right, except that every Friday night,
    There is a benefit for prison guards & cops.

They have some to the conclusion that a certain kind of fusion
Can occur within fermented pomme puree.
Soon the tankers won't be needed, when the countryside is heated
By a case of grandma's Autumn '93.
    As a side-effect, they're finding that tornados are unwinding,
    Into blankets that are software than velour.
    Which are floating up and mending where the ozone hole was rending,
    Thusly rendering the warnings premature.

In the news the Legislature kicked its homophobic nature,
And will now allow a marriage if you're gay.
Also Congress has decided that our coverage be provided,
And declared we're all insured as of today.
    If that doesn't all surprise you, We are happy to advise you
    There's a proclamation here that probably will:
    "Unimpeded procreation leads to overpopulation"
    Says the Pope in his reversal of the Pill.

            (BRIDGE:)
            We'll continue after this from Exxon,
            Giving solar panels out for free.
            And a proclamation from Monsanto,
            "All-organic farming is they key!"

In our feature we're announcing, Exercising causes bouncing,
And that bouncing causes damage to the brain.
And a daily glass of brandy, and a box of chocolate candy
Is the regimen they found you should maintain.
    Also television viewing is deceptively renewing,
    And diminishes the chances of a stroke.
    Plus a crabby disposition helps your physical condition,
    And is even more effective if you smoke!

Joe, I'd guess that "software" ought to be "softer".
