    I didn't mean      to treat you so      bad

    Bb                            F  Dm  C7

    You shouldn't take it so  personal

        F                 Bb  F                       Bb    F

    I didn't mean         to make you so    sad

      Bb                 F             Dm    C7                F   C7

    You just happened to be there, that's all

Dm                                             Am

    When I saw you say ”goodbye”  to my friend and smile

Gm                                   F

    I thought that it was well understood

Dm                                          Am

    That you'd be comin' back in a little while

Gm                                                Bb

    I didn't know that you were sayin' ”goodbye” for good

But, sooner or later, one of us must know

Bb              F                                  C7

 You just did what you're supposed to do

F                             Bb                      F

Sooner or later, one of us must know

                   Bb       F               C7

That I really did try to get close to you



I couldn't see what you could show me

Your scarf had kept your mouth well hid

I couldn't see how you could know me

But you said you knew me and I believed you did

When you whispered in my ear

And asked me if I was leavin' with you or her

I didn't realize just what I did hear

I didn't realize how young you were


I couldn't see when it started snowin'

Your voice was all that I heard

I couldn't see where we were goin'

But you said you knew an' I took your word

And then you told me later, as I apologized

That you were just kiddin' me, you weren't really from the farm

An' I told you, as you clawed out my eyes

That I never really meant to do you any harm

One of Us Must Know (Sooner or Later)” is a song written and recorded by Bob Dylan for his 1966 album Blonde on Blonde. It was recorded in late 1965 in New York with members of The Band (then known as The Hawks) included in his backing band. It was one of only two songs to be used from these sessions, along with „Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window?”, which was released as a single in 1965. The song is an emotional confession of misconnects and apologies from the singer to a woman who has tragically slipped out of his life. As a single, it reached number 33 in the UK chart.
According to Jonathan Singer, it was Paul Griffin who played the piano part on „One of Us Must Know (Sooner or Later)”.
A particularly noteworthy and unusual Phil Spector styled cover of this song was released by Les Fradkin on his „If Your Memory Serves You Well” CD in 2006.
