GutBucketeer Origins: Some of These Days C Patton or S Tucker (6) RE: Origins: Some of These Days C Patton or S Tucker 27 May 14


Near as I can tell Charley Patton took the hook line then wrote a different song and tune around it.

Tucker:
Some of these days
You'll miss your honey
Some of these days
You'll feel so lonely

You'll miss my hugging
You'll miss my kisses
You'll miss me, honey
When you go away

I feel so lonely
Just for you only
For you know, honey
You've had your way

And when you leave me
I know you'll grieve me
You'll miss your little honey
Some of these days

Which puts some focus on the singer staying behind and missing the honey.

Versus Patton:

Some of these days you're gonna miss your honey
Some of these days I am going away
Some of these days you're gonna miss your honey
I know you're gonna miss me, sweet dreams, I'll be going away

Some of these days you're gonna be sorry
Some of these days I am going away
Some of these days you're gonna miss your honey
I know you're gonna miss me, sweet dreams, I'll be going away

You will never know what your friend will do
Till he's gone away
You will miss him for returning
You will miss him from going away
You will miss him, oh little honey
I know you're gonna miss me, sweet dreams, I'll be going away

Which seems to say I'm leaving and you will miss me.
