Worried Life Blues


by Maceo Merriweather

Oh lordie lord
Oh lordie lord
It hurts me so bad for us to part
But someday baby
I ain’t gonna worry my life anymore

So many nights since you’ve been gone
I’ve had to worry and grieve my life alone
But someday baby
I ain’t gonna worry my life anymore

So many days since you went away
I’ve had to worry night and day
But someday baby
I ain’t gonna worry my life anymore

Yoo’re on my mind every place I go
How much I love you nobody knows
But someday baby
I ain’t gonna worry my life anymore

So that’s my story
This is all I got to say to you
Goodbye baby I don’t care what you do
But someday baby
I ain’t gonna worry my life anymore

Oh lordie lord
Oh lordie lord
It hurts me so bad for us to part
But someday baby
I ain’t gonna worry my life anymore

Freddie King version

I don’t care, alone you go
I don’t care, alone you stay
But good kind of treatment
I’m bringing you home someday

Well, someday, baby
You ain’t gonna worry my life anymore

Now you keep on bendin’
If the dice don’t pay
Can’t you see, little girl
You’re living too fast?

But someday, baby
You ain’t gonna worry my life anymore

Are you tellin’ everybody
In the neighborhood
‘Cause you don’t love me, baby
You didn’t mean me no good

Yes, but someday, baby
You ain’t gonna worry my life anymore
Alright!

La canzone si basa su “Someday Baby Blues” registrata da Sleepy John Estes nel 1935. La canzone di Estes è un country blues mentre quella di Maceo è un prototipo di Chicago Blues.
