It's a long long way cause I been there before
It's long long way and I been there before.

You Probably won't take no advice from me
I never took none myself you see
It's just when you get older
You'd like to pass some on,
But nobody is listening.

And it's long long way cause I been there before
It's a long long way and I been there before.

Why do we make the same mistakes
Year after year tear after tear
Just when we've learned a lesson or two,
It's the time when our life's almost through.

And it's a long long way cause I been there before
It's a long long way and I been there before.

I ain't trying to be no saint, shoot I ain't even often right
But I'm still here fighting that good old fight
So the only thing I'm saying, don't give up on your dreams
Or they will give up on you.

And it's a long long way cause I been there before
It's a long long way and I been there before

Thanks for taking time to listen to an old man
Your time is a valuable thing
And I ain't trying to preach, I'm only passing by
And I hope you like the song that I sing.

And it's long long way cause I been there before
It's a long long way and been there before

And it's long long way cause I been there before
And I don't think I'm going there no more.
