Maybe Someday Baby

This song is by Delbert McClinton and appears on the album Second Wind (1978) and on the live album Live From Austin (1989).

Now, my baby told me 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."

It's 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?"
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.

I don't know, now, I don't know why babies cry,
Why the wind blows.
I don't know,
But tonight I just might lose my mind.

I don't know, now, I don't know why babies cry,
Why the wind blows.
I don't know,
But you know tonight I just might lose my mind.

My baby told me 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 baby) someday maybe, (someday maybe)
Maybe someday baby.
Someday baby, (someday baby) someday maybe, (someday maybe)
Maybe someday baby.
Someday baby, (someday baby) someday maybe, (someday maybe)
Maybe someday baby.
