From Jim - "I grew up on Lagonda Avenue in Springfield, OH - very close to a stretch of Buck Creek ; spent many days exploring, fishing and running the banks with childhood friends. This heavy-natured song sums up a variety of experiences and people from my journey in those younger days. Peace!"

Lyrics

Some Day
©2017 Words and Music by Jim Pollock

V1
Jimmy was a young boy, but he took it like a man
His bruises & shyness came from his daddy's drunken hands
His mamma used to turn away & hold her head in shame
But, that never bothered Jimmy, his daddy treated her the same, (and he'd tell me...)

Chorus
Some Day things'll change & he'd dry his eyes and brush off the dust & pain
Some Day things'll change, 'cause I'm gonna be a man & daddy's gonna understand Some Day

V2
Junior high in the summertime on the banks of Old Buck Creek
We'd fish and rope swing out where the water's still & deep
Jimmy'd run home every day before the sun touched the ground
That never bothered me, I knew he couldn't let his mamma down, (and he'd say...)

Chorus
Some Day things'll change & he'd grab his towel & gear & turn & wave
Some Day things'll change, 'cause I'm gonna be a man & daddy's gonna understand Some Day

Bridge
Every man answers for what he does and doesn't do on his judgment day
Jimmy’s daddy answered before his time was through, ‘cause he wouldn’t change his ways...

Musical Break

V3
Town paper didn't print a word, the Sheriff said he must of drown
Neighbors said his drinkin' ways finally put him in the ground
Jimmy's mamma didn't shed a tear had a yard sale right away
None of that bothered me & Jimmy, none of that bothered me & Jimmy...(and I still hear)

Chorus
Some Day things'll change & he’d grab his towel & gear & turn & wave
Some Day things'll change ‘cause I'm gonna be a man & daddy's gonna understand...Some Day
