        One of these days
        ain't it peculiar
        You're gonna look for me
        and baby, I'll be gone

        One of these days
        and it won't be long
        Oh darling, gonna call my name
        and I'll be far gone

        I'm gonna tell you something
        that I ain't told no one before
        That is if 'n' when I can stop dancing
        and get my poor self of this ballroom floor

        One of these days
        ain't it peculiar
        Babe, you're gonna call my name
        you know that I'll be gone, bye bye baby

        I'm gonna tell you something
        that I ain't told no one before
        That is if 'n' when I can stop dancing
        and get my poor self of this ballroom floor

        One of these days
        and it won't be long
        you're going to call my name
        and I'll be gone
        You're going to call my name
        and I'll be gone
        Oh, you're going to call my name, child
        and I'll be gone
