Thanks, harry, I agree. I heard a "v" sound in there before, preceding whiskey, and the only thing that made sense was "of whiskey", but I must have been listening super sensitively, because re-listening, I'm not hearing it. I will make the change. Thanks!

Hi all,
Blind Boy Fuller recorded "Some Day You're Gonna Be Sorry" at a session in New York City on July 12, 1937, accompanying himself out of E position in standard tuning. The song is an 8-bar chorus blues, closely related to "Worried Life Blues" or "You To To Reap Just What You Sow". Fuller diverges from the sung form for his intro solo. Here is "Some Day You're Gonna Be Sorry":

 

INTRO SOLO

I told you baby, time and times again, I wouldn't be your enemy, 'd rather be your friend
REFRAIN: But some day, you're gonna be sorry, you mistreat me

Now you mistreat me here, can't when I go home, I got somebody there, mama, make you leave me 'lone
REFRAIN: But some day, you're gonna be sorry, you mistreat me

Today have been, long lonesome day, seem like tomorrow, be the same ol' way
REFRAIN: But some day, you're gonna be sorry, you mistreat me

The woman I love, four feet from the ground, every time I hug and kiss her, make my love come down
REFRAIN: But some day, you're gonna be sorry, you mistreat me

I you see my woman, tell her I said, "Hurry home.", ain't had no lovin', since my gal been gone
REFRAIN: But some day, you're gonna be sorry, you mistreat me

You're gonna want my love, some lonesome day, gwon be too late, mama, I be too far away
REFRAIN: But some day, you're gonna be sorry, you mistreat me

Take me now, baby, just as I am, ain't got no money, Lord, I'm in a jam
REFRAIN: But some day, you're gonna be sorry, you mistreat me

All best,
John
