Lyrics

ROBERTO’S SONG (HOW COULD LIFE BE BETTER THAN THIS)
(Greg Tamblyn, Lance Cowan)

As the morning starts to paint the desert sky
Dust rises behind his truck
And Roberto smiles as he drives
‘Cause his wife just wished him luck, with a kiss
How could life be better than this

As the town of Riodoso comes into view
There’s a picture in his mind
Of a village in his youth
A hard and poorer time, when he’d wish
Life could be better than this

Far to the north, they would tell him
Children are born with money to feed them
You can find what you need there
You can dream there

When he returns he pulls his truck in to the drive
Of their small adobe home
She is waiting just inside
Honks the horn so she will know, the job is his
How could life be better than this

Far to the north, they would tell him
Children are born with money to feed them
You can find what you need there
You can dream there
