8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Two sweethearts courted happily for quite a while, 'Midst simple life of country folk,
When the lad told girlie he must go away. Her little heart with grief 'most broke.
Well, she said, "You know it's true I love you best of all, So honey don't you go away."
Just as he went to go, it grieved the girlie so, These words he heard her say:
"Some of these days, You'll miss me honey.
Some of these days, You'll feel so lonely.
You'll miss my hugging, You'll miss my kissing.
You'll miss me honey when you go away.
I feel so lonely, just for you only.
For you know honey, You've had your way!
And when you leave me, I know 'twill grieve me,
You'll miss your little baby, Yes some of these days!"
