Buddy Guy - Thank Me Someday Lyrics




Down in Louisiana
On a cotton plantation
Little tent room shack
And a third grade education

Two stringed wood guitar
I taught myself how to play, yes, I did
Kept the whole family up all night
And I told them that you'll all thank me one day
Yes, I did

My sister would scream
"Boy, you just got to stop
You're waking up the whole family
Everybody is going to be hot"

Two stringed wood guitar
And I sure enough taught myself how to play
She said, "Turn it down, Buddy"
I said, "Shut up, you're gonna thank me someday"
You're gonna thank me one day
Did you hear what I said?

That was sixty years ago
Now my mom and dad is gone
I go see my sisters and brothers
And the grand-kids come along

I give the little ones my guitar
I tell 'em, "Close your eyes and play
Don't even worry about the neighbors
Y'all gonna thank me someday"

Down in Louisiana
On a cotton plantation
A little tent room shack
And I only got a third grade education

That's why I taught myself
I'm telling you that's why I taught myself
How to play, yes, I did
I kept my family up all night
And now they're thanking me everyday
Oh yeah, they're thanking me everyday

    Catfish Blues rip off by Jimi. Still good.

    Aethelwulf Freawine

    Robert Petway, Muddy Waters, Jimi, and several others covered the tune (Catfish Blues). No one knows for sure if Petway wrote it.
