[ with Buck Owens ]

I was there (I was there) I was there (I was there)
When love crashed and burned I was there

I was there when love came around with sweet warm kisses
I was there when it burned into desire
I was there when it ran into a raging river
And then turned into a runaway wildfire

I was there (I was there) I was there (I was there)
When love came around I was there
And one thing certain I did all the hurtin'
At love's final curtain I was there
[ guitar ]
I was there when love came in like a living tornado
And I was there when it blew out of control
I was there when something quickly turned into nothing
Just a hopeless helpless dream gone up in smoke

I was there (I was there)...
I was there (I was there)...
I was there (I was there)...
