Some of These Days, Paul Rishell

(1/2) > >>

Slide:
Anyone know the lyrics to Some of These Days from? Paul Rishell's? "Swear To Tell the Truth," CD? It's a Charlie Patton song I think.

Slack:
Hi Slide, welcome to Weenie Campbell.

A great version of this song... the slowed tempo seems taylor made to the lyrics.  What have you got so far?

Cheers,
slack

Slide:
Hi Slack,
Thanks for the welcome. Great site!

This is what I have.

Some of these days, gonna miss me honey
Some of these days, I am going away
Some of these days, gonna miss your honey
You know your gonna miss me, by me going away

Some of these days, your gonna be sorry
Some of these days, I am going away
Some of these days, gonna miss your honey
Know you gonna miss me, by me going away

You will never know, what your?(friend?) will do
When you going away, he will?(miss him?) (aw?) returning
You will (miss him?), by me going away
You will (miss him?), oh honey
Know you're gonna miss me , by me going away

Break:

You will never know, what your friend will do
When you goin' away, you will miss him (aw?) returning
You will miss him, by me going away
You will miss him, (aw?) returning
You know you gonna miss me, by me going away.?

Slide,

This is one of my favorite songs to play, difficult to perform well because of the slow tempo, but really full of feeling.  Patton's version is much different, faster, and without the same kind of longing.  I think your lyrics are pretty close to Paul Rishell's version (the live version on the new CD will give you goose bumps).

Here's what I'm hearing:

"When you're going away, you will miss it or return it
You will miss it by me going away
You will miss it, oh honey"

but yours could be right, too. 

Anyway, it's a great song.

Slide,

I just listened to the live version (which may be slightly different than what you have), and this is what I hear, maybe a bit closer to yours after all.


Some of these days, gonna miss your honey
Some of these days, I'll be goin away
Some of these days, gonna miss your honey
You know your gonna miss me, by my goin away

Some of these days, your gonna be sorry
Some of these days, I'll be goin away
Some of these days, gonna miss your honey
Know you gonna miss me, by my goin away

You will never know, what your  friend will do
When he's goin away, you will miss him or return him
You will miss him, by me goin away
You will miss him, oh honey
Know you're gonna miss me, by my goin away

You will never know, what your friend will do
When he's goin away, you will miss him or return him
You will miss him, by my goin away
You will miss him, oh, honey
You know you gonna miss me, by my goin away.


Jeff
