"Someday Baby" as written by and Muddy Waters....
I don't care what you do, I don't care what you say
I don't care where you go or how long you stay
Someday baby, you ain't gonna worry po' me any more

Well, you take my money and you turn it out
You fill me up with nothin' but self-doubt
Someday baby, you ain't gonna worry po' me any more

When I was young, driving was my crave
You drive me so hard, almost to the grave
Someday baby, you ain't gonna worry po' me any more

I'm so hard pressed, my mind tied up in knots
I keep recycling the same old thoughts
Someday baby, you ain't gonna worry po' me any more

So many good things in life that I overlooked
I don't know what to do now, you got me so hooked
Someday baby, you ain't gonna worry po' me any more

Well, I don't want to brag, but I'm gonna wring your neck
When all else fails I'll make it a matter of self-respect
Someday baby, you ain't gonna worry po' me any more

You can take your clothes put 'em in a sack
You goin' down the road, baby and you can't come back
Someday baby, you ain't gonna worry po' me any more

I tried to be friendly, I tried to be kind
I'm gonna drive you from your home, just like I was driven from mine
Someday baby, you ain't gonna worry po' me any more

Living this way ain't a natural thing to do
Why was I born to love you?
Someday baby, you ain't gonna worry po' me any more

    General CommentNote that this song is almost a cover of the Allman Brothers' "Trouble No More"; he takes the refrain and the opening verse, and then writes his own lyrics from there.

    General CommentDoes any other twenty-something-year-old (who thought this song would be the defining dylan moment of their lives) feel betrayed by the revelation that this is a cover? oh well. it is still filled with great lines:
    "I'm so hard pressed, my mind tied up in knots
    I keep recycling the same old thoughts "

    (This is a dylan-original line right?)

    General CommentThere are many different versions of this song. In addition to writing his own words he decided to make it swing.
