Topic: Been There and Done That (Another Beamer and Jets collaboration)

BEEN THERE - DONE THAT
Scott Sailer / Jeff Gilpen
Sept. 2020
3/4 time

V1
[Am]I once thought I[Dm]knew what love was
[Am]It happed to me every new [Em]day
[Am]I believed what all the songs [Dm]would tell me
[Am]had my eyes wide open, [Em]Im unable to [Am]hide

Chorus:
[C]Ya know I’ve been there [F]and I’ve done that,
[C]I have the passion [G]and the heart
[C]But is any magic [F]left in the hat?
[C]Well, I don’t know if that [G]love will [C]start

Bridge:  Am Dm C F(X2)

V2
[Am]I thought love [Dm]was a treasure
[Am]A gift that would [Em]always be kind
[Am]Rose-colored glasses hid [Dm]darkness from the [Am]pleasure
[Am]it took some time [Em]but I stopped being [Am]blind
Chorus:
[C]Ya know I’ve been there [F]and I’ve done that,
[C]I have the passion [G]and the heart
[C]But is any magic [F]left in the hat?
[C]Now I’ve forgotten [G]where my heart [C]is at

Bridge:  Am Dm C F(X2)

V3
[Am]Now I don’t fall in love [Dm]so easy
[Am]Its the falling out [Em]I hate
[Am]The blues that [Dm]dominate
[Am]just are’nt worth [Em]the weight
Chorus:
[C]Brother, I’ve been there [F]and I’ve done that,
[C]I trashed my passion [G]and broke my heart
[C]Is any magic [F]left in that hat?
[C]I should stop caring [G]but I cant help,  [C]hiting restart.

Very nice

V3 has great lyric - love the lines  very clever !
[Am]Now I don’t fall in love [Dm]so easy
[Am]Its the falling out [Em]I hate
[Am]The blues that [Dm]come after,
[Am]just are’nt worth [Em]the weight

Super collaborative effort- can’t wait to hear it
Since I really don’t know what 3/4 time is

"Since I really don’t know what 3/4 time is" --- LOLOL I lovew it!  Honestly Im a 4/4 guy! Stepping out of the box is hard!  This is watz time or AKA  german oompha pa pa. like Wreck of the Edmund fitsgerald,  ball and chain, Lucy in the sky with diamonds and most country songs.  Aslo can use 6/8.  which is really easy to fall back into 4/4 lol. look up some stuff on you tube.
