Someday Baby

You worry me now,
But you won't worry me long.
I'm making you leave.

"Someday Baby," which appeared on the 2006 album "Modern Times," is based on a number of older songs done by Muddy Waters, Sleepy John Estes and others. It netted Dylan a Grammy award. The essence of the song is a description of a troublesome lover who sooner or later won't worry him anymore. See below:

- Do what you want, say what you want, go away as long as you want. 
- You took my money, you leave me full of doubt.
- I used to like to drive, but now you drive me crazy.
- I'm dwelling on the same thoughts, and felling uptight. 
- I overlooked the good things in life for the sake of you, and I'm hooked.
- I'll wring your neck as a matter of self respect.
- Pack your clothes and take off. Don't come back.
- I tried to be nice, but now I'm kicking you out.
- "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 anymore."
