Judy Collins – Someday Soon lyrics

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 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.

    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"!

    I was aware of this song and thought it was rather nice, then I heard Joanie Johnson sing it at the Stars and Steel Guitars Show in a little town in southern il. Oct 25, 2014. Her hubby, Mike Johnson was on his pedal steel guitar. I had never heard either of them live. Then on our way home my husband says "honey you gotta learn that song." (he plays pedal steel too). Talk about catch your heart way down inside to your soul. Joanie with her pure, wholesome vocals blended in with Mike's pedal steel, it just doesn't get any better than that, awesome, I cried. Gregg Galbraith playing lead guitar was pretty awesome too. I don't think anyone could sing it any better, nor anyone play it better on a pedal steel guitar as did Joanie and mike. The meaning of the song? It doesn't need to be explained, if you don't get it from listening, you are not gonna get it, ever. A friend of mine used to say "If you have to 'splain' it, it's not a hit." So? Listen again. I gotta have their cd.
