"Same Thing Happened To Me" as written by Gary Nicholson and John Prine....
Moonlight shining on the back of my hand
Cat fight rattlin' the garbage can
Looks like somethin' chased you up a tree
Same thing, same thing happened to me

Wild wind blowing down the neck of my shirt
Old men sitting on a bench in the dirt
Seems that another ship has gone out to sea
Same thing, same thing happened to me

Shoe shine someone's got to tell ya the news
A fine line separates a boy from the blues
Looks like you could use some company
Same thing, same thing happened to me

Runnin', runnin' just as fast as I can
Someone, someone take a hold of my hand
Looks like somethin' chased you up a tree
Same thing, same thing happened to me
Same thing, same thing happened to me.

    General Commentthis song makes me feel better when im sad. to me it feels like john prine is telling me to cheer up by telling me 'the same thing happened to me..'

    A fine line separates a boy from the blues
    Looks like you could use some company
    Same thing, same thing happened to me
    Someone, someone take a hold of my hand..
    Same thing, same thing happened to me

    Its like the way, some people call it 'feminine' but its just a feely style instead of a thinking, address the problem way of addressing a troubling time... anyway, its like the way some people feel better by offering up similar problems to yours when you're down. We're in the same boat/i've been there before.
