Used to chase that boy home from school 
We called him freckled faced red headed fool 
He was different he wasn't cool like me 
Sticks and stones didn't break any bones 
Bet we never left well enough alone 
And one day he ran away from home  you see 
And I passed him as he walked away 
And in his eyes I heard him say 
"One of these days you're gonna love me 
You'll sit down by yourself and think 
About the times you pushed and shoved me 
And what good friends we might've been 
And then you're gonna sigh a little 
Maybe even cry a little but 
One of these days you're gonna love me" 

Patty Sue was a small town beauty 
I took one look at her and had to pull her to me 
Lord knows she should've seen right through me 
When I promised her the world 
But at seventeen, you only want one thing 
I left her standin' there with my high school ring 
Innocent tears in the pourin' rain 
As I walked away 
And I still see her in my dreams 
And to this day she's whispering 

"One of these days you're gonna love me 
You'll sit down by yourself and think 
About the time you turned from me 
And what good friends we might've been 
And then you're gonna sigh a little 
Maybe even cry a little but 
One of these days you're gonna love me" 

Now everybody stands up 
The congregation sings 
It's a song of sweet forgiveness 
And as the chorus rings 
The wind blows clear my memory 
The pages start to turn 
Then suddenly I'm singin' 
The moment that I learn 

One of these days I'm gonna love me 
And feel the joy of sweet release 
One of these days, I'll rise above me 
And at last I'll find some peace 
Then I'm gonna smile a little 
Maybe even laugh a little but 
One of these days I'm gonna love me
