By the time I noticed her she was smilin' at me
From where I stood the mutual attraction was easy to see
Ten beers and twenty passes later the bar tender said it was time to go
I was outta money, she stood and said honey I'm a-going home on my own.

Oh, I've been there, listen buddy, I've been there
I been there when I thought I was livin' a dream and woke up in a real night mare
Yessum, I've been there, let me tell you I've been there
Anywhere a woman can leave you, man, I've been there.

My baby said honey you need a break
Why don't you take a little fishin' trip
I loaded my my old truck and as I drove away
She waved and kinda blew me a little kiss
A couple days later when I got home
Was nothing left but a note on the door
It said I had to leave you
I need a man who'll stay home a little more.

Let me tell you, I've been there, hey buddy, I've been there
I've been there when I thought I was livin' a dream and woke up in a real night mare
Oh, I've been there, I'm here to tell you, I've been there
'Bout anywhere a woman can leave you, man, I've been there.

'Bout anywhere a woman can leave you, son, I've been there

Oh, I've been there.
I've been there too, son, let me tell ya, I know what it's all about.
