Year Three, Week Thirty-Nine: “Some Day Soon:

Lyrics:

They tell me not to mess around
I’m driving on thin ice
Well I tell them I’m the best around
so nice they named me twice
My name is Buford Buford Lee

I was born the seventh mother’s
seventh daughter’s seventh son
You may think I’m like no other
for the crazy things I’ve done
but I’m just being me

Some day soon you’re luck is gonna catch up with you
Some day soon you’re gonna die
Some day soon there’s a bullet with your name on it baby
Some day soon you know why
Some day soon you know why

One night at the Beer n’ Smoke
I was out back throwing bones
The air’s so thick it made me choke
I could hear a hound dog moan
and a chill went up my spine

Hot and black the evening was
when Joe came running wild
Said, I’m gonna end your life because
my wife just had a child
and it sure don’t look like mine

Some day soon you’re luck is gonna catch up with you
Some day soon you’re gonna die
Some day soon there’s a bullet with your name on it baby
Some day soon you know why
Some day soon you know why

I dropped my cash and tried to run
but my feet were made of lead
The dreaded day had surely come
just like my mama said

Some day soon you’re luck is gonna catch up with you
Some day soon you’re gonna die
Some day soon there’s a bullet with your name on it baby
Some day soon you know why
Some day soon you’re luck is gonna catch up with you
Some day soon you’re gonna die
Some day soon there’s a bullet with your name on it baby
Some day soon you know why
Some day soon you know why
