I heard this song performed on Prairie Home Companion today and it brought back memories of when I used to sing it as a young buck. Here it is with a few tweaks:

Ennis' Song

There's a young man that I know
His age is the same as mine
He comes from up in Northern Wyoming
Just out of the (forest) service
And he's looking for his fun
Someday soon, going with him, someday soon.

My parents can not stand him
'Cause he rides the rodeo
My father says that he will leave me cryin'
I would follow him right up
The highest mountain I know
Someday soon, going with him, someday soon.

And when he comes to call, my wife ain't got a good word to say
Guess it's cause she was just as wild, in her younger days.
He loves his damned old rodeo as much as he loves me,
Someday soon, going with him, someday soon.
May 2019 be better for us all.

Okay, I've listened to it again to make sure it is gender neutral: Alabama's first big hit "Feels So Right". Being from 1981, our guys could have heard it on their truck radios on the way to a rendevous.

"How Can I Be Sure"........by the Young Rascalls


How can I be sure in a world that's constantly changing?
How can I be sure where I stand with you?
Whenever I, whenever I am away from you
I wanna die 'cause you know I wanna stay with you.
How do I know? Maybe you're trying to use me.
Flying too high can confuse me. Touch me but don't take me down.
Whenever I, whenever I am away from you
My alibi is telling people I don't care for you.
Maybe I'm just hanging around with my head up upside down.
It's a pity, I can't seem to find someone who's as pretty
and lovely as you.
How can I be sure? I really really really wanna know.
I really really really wanna know. Oh.
How can I be sure in a world that's constantly changing?
How can I be sure? I'll be sure with you

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

I couldn't find a video performance by the artist, but I did find this fan video made with footage of "The Office", I think.

Someday Soon, written by (Canadian) Ian Tyson, of Ian & Sylvia fame. Song was originally released on their Northern Journey album in 1964

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ian_and_Sylvia

They married in June of 1964,and released their third album, Northern Journey during that year ... Also on the Northern Journey album was "Someday Soon", a composition by Ian that would rival "Four Strong Winds" in its popularity.
