Someday Baby Blues  (1935) 
by Anonymous
"Someday Baby Blues", also known as "Worried Life Blues" or "Trouble No More", is a traditional blues song first recorded by "Sleepy John" Estes in 1935, but has been covered many times since.

I don't care how long you're gone,
I don't care how long you stay.
But that good kind treatment,
Bring you back home someday.
Someday baby,
You ain't going to worry my mind any more.

I hate that wind,
That old chilly breeze.
Come blowing through
Your BVDs.
But someday baby,
You ain't going to worry my mind any more.

If you don't quit bettin',
Boy those dice won't pay.
It's gonna send you home.
On your yas-yas-yas.
But someday baby,
You ain't going to worry my life any more.

It ain't but the one thing,
That give a man the blues.
He ain't got no bottom
In his last pair of shoes.
But someday baby,
You ain't worry my mind any more.

I tell all the people,
In your neighborhood.
You're a no-good woman,
You don't mean no good.
But someday baby,
You ain't going to worry for poor John's mind any more.
