Version Sleepy John Estes (1935):
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 neighbohood.
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.

Version Big Maceo Merriweather (1941):
Whoa, Lordy, Lord,
Oh Lordy, Lord.
It hurts me so bad
For us to part.
But someday, baby
I ain't gonna worry my life any more.

So many nights
Since you been gone.
I been worried' an grievin'
My life alone.
But someday, baby
I ain't gonna worry my life any more.

So many days
Since you went away.
I had to worry
Both night an day.
But someday, baby
I ain't gonna worry my life any more.

No boy, I ain't gonna worry my life no more!

Yeah, yeah

Version Lighnin' Hopkins (1948):
Now here's something darling, I didn't think you would do
You'd have caused me to mistreat my home, it was on account of you
But someday baby you ain't gonna worry my life any more.

You know my mind, any place I go
The way that you've been wooing me, hope you never want me no more
But someday baby you ain't gonna worry my life any more.

So bye bye baby, you know I'm through with you
You done made me do something, God I didn't want to do
But someday baby you ain't gonna worry my life any more.

Now little darling, this is what I've got to tell you
Just marry you another man, and don't look back at what I do
But someday baby you ain't gonna worry my life any more.


Version Muddy Waters (1955):
Don't care how long you gone, I don't care how long you stayin'.
But, good kind treatment gonna bring you home some day.
But, someday baby, you ain't gonna trouble poor me, anymore.

You just keep on bettin' that the dice won't pass.
Well you know, darlin, you are livin too fast.
But, someday baby, you ain't gonna trouble poor me anymore.

I'm gonna tell everybody in your neighborhood
That you the sweet little girl, but you don't mean me no good
But, someday baby, you ain't gonna trouble poor me anymore.

Well, I know you're leavin' well, you call that gone.
Well, without love you can't stay long.
But, someday baby, you ain't gonna trouble poor me anymore.

Well, goodbye baby, come on and shake my hand.
I don't want no woman you can't have a man.
But, someday baby, you ain't gonna trouble poor me anymore.

Version Fred McDowell (1965):
You made me weep and you made me moan
Way you cause me to leave my happy home.
But someday you ain't gonna worry my life any mo'.

You told ev'rybody in your neighborhood
What a dirty mistreater didn't mean ya no good.
But someday you ain't gonna worry my life any mo'.

When I had money I had plenty-a friends.
I ain't got no money, baby, honey, even no friend.
But someday, you ain't gonna worry my life any more.

If I had money like Henry Ford
I'll have me a woman on ev'ry road.
But bye-bye you ain't gonna worry my life any mo'.

Version Bob Dylan (on Modern Times, 2006):
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 me out
You fill me up with nothin' (but) self doubt
Someday baby, you ain't gonna worry po' me anymore.

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 anymore.

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 anymore.

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

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

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

I try to be friendly, I try 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 anymore

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.
