Been Here Before
Christone "Kingfish" Ingram Lyrics


Some days I feel so different
It's like I don't fit in
Some kids like the greatest hits
But I dig Guitar Slim

Some days I wake up grateful
Some days I'm not so sure
I can still hear grandma saying
"Child, you've been here before"

I don't know where I came from
Or how I got this way
Momma said the sky lit up
With lightning on my birthday

I've always been different
There's one thing that's for sure
I can still hear grandma saying
"Child, you've been hear before"

Looking back I wonder
'Bout all the things I've done
No one seems to be sure
Where I came from

I can still hear grandma praying
And she'd be talking to the Lord
She'd say, "Child, if I know one thing
You've been here before"

I can't find the footprints
I can't even find no tracks
I don't have no proof
How I made it back

People always tell me
"Boy, you know you've got an old soul"
I can still hear grandma saying
"Child, you've been here before"

I might have been a rooster
I might have been a goat
I might have been the king of the jungle
A long, long time ago

All I know is that some blessings
Follow me everywhere I go
I can still hear grandma saying
"Child, you've been here before"

One day down the road
When I get to heaven's door
I hope I hear grandma saying
"Kingfish, you've been here before"
