Overview

In the same vein as his other spiritual-esque songs, Some Happy Day features Patton’s piercing treble-side sliding notes, as they complement his vocal lines. Although it’s not a blues, it uses the I, IV, and V chords as well, just in a slightly different order.

Some day, some happy day, from sin set free
I’ll live with Christ for ages, some day, some day

Some day, some happy day, from sin set free
I’ll live with Christ for ages, some day, some day

My trials will fewer be, some day, some day
Some day, some happy day, from sin set free
I’ll live with Christ for ages, some day, some day

When I shall have eternal home, some day, some day
Some day, some happy day, from sin set free
I’ll live with Christ for ages, some day, some day

Some day I’ll be in the entrance here, some day, some day
Some day, some happy day, from sin set free
I’ll live with Christ for ages, some day, some day
