Subject: RE: Your favorite cowboy/western folk songs
Someday Soon by Ian Tyson is based on the story of his romance with Sylvia Fricker. Are these the original lyrics? Source: LyricFind lyrics Universal Music Publishing Group, Warner/Chappell Music, Inc.

My parents can not stand him 'cause he works the rodeo
They say he's not your kind, He'll leave you crying
If he asks, I'll follow him down the toughest road to hoe
Someday soon, going with him, someday soon

When he visits me my pa ain't got one good word to say
Got a hunch he was as wild back in his early days

Mr Fricker worked in the white goods department of the Eaton store in Chatham, Ontario. On Friday nights he would go to a bar with my Uncle Peter. Uncle Peter said all he talked about was the 'pseudo-cowboy' who had run off with his daughter.
