Intro: B

B               F#        G#m           Em
First thing I remember is asking papa, "Why?"
    B               G               B
For there were many things I didn't know
B                 F#      G#m            E
 And daddy always smiled; took me by the hand
        B      F#           B
Sayin' "Someday you'll understand."

          F#                            B
Well, I'm here to tell you now each and every mother's son that
    F#                        B
you better learn it fast: you better learn it young, cause
C#m   E        B
Someday never comes

      B                   F# G#m              Em
Well, time and tears went by  and I collected dust
    B               G               B
For there were many things I didn't know
B                 F#  G#m                    E
 When daddy went away, he said, "try to be a man
     B      F#           B
And, someday you'll understand."

          F#                            B
Well, I'm here to tell you now each and every mother's son that
    F#                        B
you better learn it fast: you better learn it young, cause
C#m   E        B
Someday never comes

    B               F#    G#m            Em
And then one day in April, I wasn't even there
    B               G               B
For there were many things I didn't know
  B               F# G#m            E
A son was born to me; Mama held his hand
        B      F#           B
Sayin' "Someday you'll understand."

          F#                            B
Well, I'm here to tell you now each and every mother's son that
    F#                        B
you better learn it fast: you better learn it young, cause
C#m   E        B
Someday never comes
    C#m   E        B    G
Oo, someday never comes

  C               G           Am          Fm
I think it was September, the year I went away
    C               G#              C
For there were many things I didn't know
C                    G        Am              F
 And I still see him standing, tryin' to be a man
         C      G            C
I said, "Someday you'll understand."

          G                             C
Well, I'm here to tell you now each and every mother's son that
    G                         C
you better learn it fast: you better learn it young, cause
Dm    F       C
Someday never comes
    Dm    F       C
Oo, someday never comes
