One of These Days - Song Notes

November 28, 2013

Key of C

Dan original

Bo Diddley style - "Shave and a haircut" shuffle

Drums stay mostly on toms and bass

Drums stop at first stop in the beginning of the chorus with the rest of band

Drums play through the second stop at the end of the chorus, backing up the vocals

 

C

We hit the honky tonk on a Saturday night.

Like a band of rebels charging into the fight.

             F

Now it's Sunday morning there's a blinding light.

C

Wait its afternoon why is the Sun so bright?

 

F                                                C                          (Stop)
One of these days, one of these days, I'm going to learn my lesson and change my ways.

C                                                                            (band stop, drums keep going)
One of these days, one of these days, they won't know my name at every bar in town.

I won't dance every song til they close it down.

I'll be a good little boy. Won't stay out late.

G                                        C

One of these days. Just not today.

The shots were flowing like the Brazos River.

I reckon my eyes were bigger than my liver.

It's all a little foggy but the best I can figure,

The bar tab was big but the fun was even bigger.

One of these days, one of these days, I'm going to learn my lesson and change my ways.
One of these days, one of these days, they won't know my name at every bar in town.

I won't dance every song til they close it down.

I'll be a good little boy. Won't stay out late.

One of these days. Just not today.

I can't remember even hearing last call.

A Pearl snap on the floor and my boots in the hall.

This ain't my house and I better be bookin...

But oh thank god at least he is good looking.


One of these days, one of these days, I'm going to learn my lesson and change my ways.
One of these days, one of these days, they won't know my name at every bar in town.

I won't dance every song til they close it down.

I'll be a good little boy. Won't stay out late.

One of these days. Just not today.
