My baby told me such a long time ago
She said, "You're gonna miss me someday"
Now, My baby told me such a long time ago
She said, "You're gonna wish you had stayed"

Been a long time, honey, and I'm gone still
I think about you some and I guess I always will
And if I'm losing, at least I'm moving
And it's easier to live with than standing still

She called me collect from a pay telephone
She said, "Who's gonna love you when you're old?"
Now my baby told me once I was gone
She said, "I've never known a man so cold"

Now, women say funny things sometimes
Especially when they're just about to lose their minds
If I could change it, knockin' on wood
Lord knows I'd box a forest full of trees down if I could
Someday baby, someday maybe, maybe someday baby

Oh, I don't know
Now, I don't know why babies cry, why the wind blows
No, girl, I just don't know
But tonight I just might lose my mind

I don't know
I don't know why babies cry, why the wind blows
No, honey, I don't know
But tonight I just might lose my mind

My baby told me such a long time ago
She said, "You're gonna miss me someday"
My baby told me a long time ago
She said, "You're gonna wish you had stayed"

Been a long time, honey, and I'm gone still
I think about you some and I guess I always will
Someday baby, someday maybe, maybe someday baby
Someday baby, someday maybe, maybe someday baby
Someday baby, someday maybe, maybe someday baby
