Billy said he was hanging ’round
When he saw you at Willy’s slamming down something strong to drink
He told me you were all alone
Chewing on ice and waiting for some ghost to show

Hell, we’ve both been here before
We hit the floor and then we’re out the door
And rumors spread around
This lonely little town

Your make-up was slightly overdone
Your hair had been curled but lately it had come undone
You went to the jukebox twice an hour
Hoping to find a song to help you feel inspired

Hell, we’ve both been here before
We hit the floor and then we’re out the door
And rumors spread around
This lonely little town

I told him that I wasn’t interested or in the mood
With any time to set aside for you

I wash the smell I clean the dirt
I cover my tattoo with a long-sleeve shirt
I put on a pair of dingo boots
A soft leather vest and silver string tie ’round my neck

Hell, we’ve both been here before
We hit the floor and then we’re out the door
And rumors spread around
I’ve been through darker nights
And I’ve seen you in the morning light
And the scarier sights around
This lonely little town
