As recorded by Sophie Tucker, 1926:

G             B7                     Em
Some of these days you'll miss me, honey
G             B7                      Em
Some of these days you're gonna be so lonely
               E7                            A7
You'll miss my huggin'; you're gonna miss my kissin'
             Em7      A7     Em7      A7   D7
You're gonna miss me, honey, when I'm far away
          G       G7      C
I feel so lonely, for you only
                 E7                            Am  Am7/G
'cause you know, honey, you've always had your way
    B7       C        Gdim                G      F7 E7
And when you leave me you know it's gonna grieve me
      A7                 D7                              D
Gonna miss your big, fat mamma, your mamma some of these days


G             B7                     Em
Some of these days you'll miss me, honey
G             B7                      Em
Some of these days you're gonna be so lonely
               E7                            A7
You'll miss my huggin'; you're gonna miss my kissin'
                 Em7      A7     Em7      A7  D7
Oh, you're gonna miss me, honey, when I'm far away
          G       G7      C
I feel so lonely, for you only
                 E7                            Am  Am7/G
'cause you know, honey, you've always had your way
    B7       C        Gdim                G      F7 E7
And when you leave me you know it's gonna grieve me
      A7                 D7                              D
Gonna miss your big, fat mamma, your mamma some of these days



This song is certainly among the oldest in my collection, appearing to 
have first been recorded by "the last of the red hot mamas" in San 
Francisco in 1911. Tucker had an amazing career. Her recordings appear on 
original Edison cylinders (this song among them), and she appeared on 
television at least as late as Ed Sullivan's show in December, 1964. This 
song, in particular, became her acknowledged theme song - and was one of 
very few from that era written by a black songwriter yet recorded by, and
accepted by, the world at large. Brooks was far from a one-hit wonder,
himself - you may also remember another of his tunes called "Darktown
Strutters Ball."
