Album version

It sounds like the main lead guitar might play with a capo on the 6th fret, but it might as well be played uncapoed; these are all standard blues licks that any decent guitarist should be able to play anywhere on the neck.

Common lick between lines (relative to capo 6th fret):          
  :     .     .     .       :            :     .     .     .       :

 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 gon' 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 gon' worry po' me any more
When I was young, driving was my crave
You drive me so hard almost to the grave
Someday baby, you ain't gon' worry po' me any more
I'm so hard pressed, my mind tied up in knots
I keep recycling the same old thoughts
Someday baby, you ain't gon' worry po' me any more
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 gon' worry po' me any more
Well, I don't want to brag, I wanna wring your neck
When all else fails, I'll make it a matter of self respect
Someday baby, you ain't gon' worry po' me any more
You can take your clothes, put 'em in a sack
You're goin' down the road, baby, and you can't come back
Someday baby, you ain't gon' worry po' me any more
I tried to be friendly, I tried to be kind
I'm gonna drive you from your home just like I was driven from mine
Someday baby, you ain't gon' worry po' me any more
Living this way ain't a natural thing to do
Why was I born to love you'
Someday baby, you ain't gon' worry po' me any more

You take my money and you turn me out
You fill me up with self doubt
Someday baby, you ain't gon' worry po' me any more
You made me eat a ton of dust
You're potentially dangerous, and not worthy of trust
Someday baby, you ain't gonna worry poor me any more
[Instrumental verse]
Little by little, bit by bit
Every day I'm becoming more of a hypocrite
Someday baby, you ain't gonna worry poor me any more
You've got my mind tied up in knots
I just keep recycling the same old thoughts
Someday baby, you ain't gonna worry poor me any more
When I heard you was cold, I bought you a coat and hat
I think you must have forgotten about that
Someday baby, you ain't gonna worry poor me any more
[Instrumental verse]
Gonna blow out your mind, and make you pure
I've taken about as much of this as I can endure
Someday baby, you ain't gonna worry poor me any more
You put me down from the upper creek
That's all right, to you I turn the other cheek
Someday baby, you ain't gonna worry poor me any more
[Instrumental verse]
You say you need me, how would I know?
You say you love me, but it can't be so
Someday baby, you ain't gonna worry poor me any more
I don't want to brag, but I'll wring your neck
When all else fails, I'll make it a matter of self-respect
Someday baby, you ain't gonna worry poor me any more
[Instrumental verse]
Living this way ain't a natural thing to do
Why was I born to love you?
Someday baby, you ain't gonna worry poor me any more
