There's a young man that I know
His age is twenty-one
Comes from down
In southern Colorado

Just out of the service
And he's looking for his fun
Someday soon, going with him
Someday soon

My parents can not stand him
Cause he rides the rodeo
My father says that
He will leave me crying

I would follow him right down
The toughest road I know
Someday soon, going with him
Someday soon

And when he comes to call
My pa ain't got a good word to say
Guess it's cause he's just
As wild in the younger days

So blow, you old Blue Northern
Blow my love to me
He's driving in tonight
From California

He loves his damned old rodeo
As much as he loves me
Someday soon, going with him
Someday soon

But when he comes to call
My pa ain't got a word to say
Guess it's cause he's just
As wild in the younger days

Blow, you old Blue Northern
Blow my love to me
He's driving in tonight
From California

He loves his damned old rodeo
As much as he loves me
Someday soon, going with him
Someday soon

Someday soon, going with him
Someday soon

    This isn't exactly a bob dylan song. Fairly simple lyrics about a girl and a guy in love. What stood out for me, and made me check out the flying burrito bros in 1969, was the killer pedal steel. First time i had heard one outside of nashville, but soon to follow was some amazing sneaky pete and the classic dire wolf by the dead with garcia pumping away. Did not take long for me to fall in love with the new riders 1st album with jerry, then buddy cage for several albums. In 1976 when a friend and next door neighbor got a regular gig at the grand ole' opry, got to meet weldon myrick, who introduced me to buddy emmons, the king of them all. Anyone who loved the pedal steel like i did was treated from '69 until '77 with the run of superb pedal steel, and to think - for me it all began with "someday soon"!

    This song is so simple, yet so universal in how the younger generation has to go off and "do their thing." Parents can only teach so much, and because they have made their own share of mistakes during the "tender years," they want so badly to protect their children from making similar mistakes. This phase is a key component in the development of a healthy ego, and allows the person to gain insight for making future decisions. How many of us have yearned to go back to a more exciting time in our lives, and thought to ourself "If only I knew then what I know now". Face it, it's the human dilemma. I guess the best thing is to be grateful that we finally did learn something! Unfortunately, some never do. But, think about it, the best time for making all our goof ups is when we have a soft place to land at home.

    Ian tyson of the canadian folk duet ian and sylvia wrote this song back in 1964. They released it on their album "northern journey" it is a song about a young girl who is in love with a cowboy who her father doesn't like because. As the song says he was like that himself as a young man.

    Reminds of an old boyfriend... A cowboy of sorts who went off to the service then came back home... Looking for me. Should have married him, i guess. Well, i sing this in his memory.
