One Of These Days
Harris Emmylou Lyrics


Well I won't have to chop no wood
I can be bad or I can be good
I can be any way that I feel
One of these days

Might be a woman that's dressed in black
Be a hobo by the railroad track
I'll be gone like the wayward wind one of these days

One of these days it will soon
be all over cut and dry
And I won't have this urge to go all bottled up inside
One of these days I'll look back and I'll say I left in time
'Cause somewhere for me I know there's peace of mind

I might someday walk across this land
Carrying the Lord's book in my hand
Goin' cross the country singin' loud as I can
One of these days

But I won't have trouble on my back
Cuttin' like the devil with a choppin' axe,
Got to shake it off my back, one of these days

One of these days it will soon be all over cut and dry
And I won't have this urge to go all bottled up inside
One of these days I'll look back and I'll say I left in time
'Cause somewhere for me I know there's peace of mind
There's gonna be peace of mind for me, one of these days

One of These Days
Emmylou Harris
Well I won't have to chop no wood
I can be bad or I can be good
I can be any way that I feel
One of these days
Might be a woman that's dressed in black
Be a hobo by the railroad track
I'll be gone like the wayward wind one of these days
One of these days it will soon
be all over cut and dry
And I won't have this urge to go all bottled up inside
One of these days I'll look back and I'll say I left in time
'Cause somewhere for me I know there's peace of mind
I might someday walk across this land
Carrying the Lord's book in my hand
Goin' cross the country singin' loud as I can
One of these days
But I won't have trouble on my back
Cuttin' like the devil with a choppin' axe,
Got to shake it off my back, one of these days
One of these days it will soon be all over cut and dry
And I won't have this urge to go all bottled up inside
One of these days I'll look back and I'll say I left in time
'Cause somewhere for me I know there's peace of mind
There's gonna be peace of mind for me, one of these days

When I first heard this, I loved it. It was exactly how I felt trying to get free of a terribly abusive situation. I played it often for encouragement. I still like it. Emmylou is a wonderful singer, beautiful voice and expression of the words.

Carol Mixon

I used to listen to this song to help me get through a bad marriage, too.

Rachel Koch

My dad passed away a few months ago, and he was a big Emmylou Harris fan. Her songs and Elton John’s have helped me feel close to him, especially this song in particular. ❤️

Jay Goodman

Thanks for that, Rachel.
It’s one of these days now.

1976 , my best girl and I played this on the Jukebox and danced so many times as this was our song. It is now 2015 and we are still together and we still love Emmy Lou Harris, and each other !
