Rogers, Kenny - Where Or When Lyrics

It seems we stood and talked like this before.
We looked at each other in the same way then,
But I can't remember where or when.

The clothes you're wearing are the clothes you wore.
The smile you were smiling you were smiling then,
But I can't remember where or when.

Some things that happened for the first time
Seem to be happening again.

And so it seems that we have met before
And laughed before and loved before,
But who knows where or when?

Rogers, Kenny Where Or When Comments
  1. Erik S

    So do I now need to ask the obvious question of...

    ... who is listening this in 2020 ?!

    I’ve a better message... Kenny Rodgers had a brilliant voice. Way better than Bieber sh*t of 2day

  2. Nice Boy

    Lonesome boatman here we go again my turn now

  3. weelHop

    pls stop my addiction

  4. Mariano Roland

    Tired of being anything else but me, I'm a rancher, cowboy by heart who longs to be free of critical judgment

  5. Michael Hollett

    Was at a bar many years ago at Airlie Beach and this song came on..everyone and I mean everyone started singing. It was just a fantastic moment.

  6. Melanie

    I've always enjoyed songs of all different genres...I'm not particularly a country fan, but I have always enjoyed the songs on this album and the fact that each song tells a story...and now since my son is a fan, we can enjoy them together...

  7. gobluenick16

    If this song isn’t played at my funeral I’m not going!!!

  8. [MG] smasher

    If I could say this was made in my day I’d love it. But all I get to say is instead of music about how to gamble. We have music on how to say words fast AKA: RAP SHIT

  9. [MG] smasher

    Alright kids, there you have it. The secret to gambling is staring at you’re competition and aces. LOTS OF ACES

  10. Dudley J Garidel Jr

    This is better advice than a therapist will give, cheaper, and easier to understand.

  27. Eduardo Molina

    You never say what you have before having it, you have to choose your friends correctly, throw away bad people, keep in your life good people, you have to know when to fight, when to just walk away, and when to run away.

  34. Claudio Frasson

    On a warm summer's eve
    On a train bound for nowhere
    I met up with the gambler
    We were both too tired to sleep
    So we took turns a-starin'
    Out the window at the darkness
    The boredom overtook us,
    And he began to speak
    He said, "Son, I've made a life
    Out of readin' people's faces
    Knowin' what the cards were
    By the way they held their eyes
    So if you don't mind me sayin'
    I can see you're out of aces
    For a taste of your whiskey
    I'll give you some advice"
    So I handed him my bottle
    And he drank down my last swallow
    Then he bummed a cigarette
    And asked me for a light
    And the night got deathly quiet
    And his faced lost all expression
    He said, "If you're gonna play the game, boy
    You gotta learn to play it right
    You've got to know when to hold 'em
    Know when to fold 'em
    Know when to walk away
    And know when to run
    You never count your money
    When you're sittin' at the table
    There'll be time enough for countin'
    When the dealin's done
    Every gambler knows
    That the secret to survivin'
    Is knowin' what to throw away
    And knowin' what to keep
    'Cause every hand's a winner
    And every hand's a loser
    And the best that you can hope for is to die
    in your sleep
    And when he finished speakin'
    He turned back toward the window
    Crushed out his cigarette
    And faded off to sleep
    And somewhere in the darkness
    The gambler he broke even
    But in his final words
    I found an ace that I could keep
    You've got to know when to hold 'em
    Know when to fold 'em
    Know when to walk away
    And know when to run
    You never count your money
    When you're sittin' at the table
    There'll be time enough for countin'
    When the dealin's done
    You've got to know when to hold 'em (when to hold 'em)
    Know when to fold 'em (when to fold 'em)
    Know when to walk away
    And know when to run
    You never count your money
    When you're sittin' at the table
    There'll be time enough for countin'
    When the dealin's done
    You've got to know when to hold 'em
    Know when to fold 'em
    Know when to walk away
    And know when to run
    You never count your money
    When you're sittin' at the table
    There'll be time enough for countin'
    When the dealin's done

    “Oh c’mon kids you can’t say you know who Kenny Rogers is, you guys just know him from the commercial” -my 6th grade math teacher

  36. Ricardo Lugo

    En una cálida tarde de verano,
    En un tren que no iba a ninguna parte
    Nos conocimos con el apostador.
    Los dos estábamos muy cansados de dormir.
    Así que nos turnamos para mirar
    Por la ventana a la oscuridad
    El aburrimiento nos sobrecogió y él comenzó a hablar.

    Dijo: "Hijo, me he ganado la vida
    Leyendo las caras de las personas
    Conozco que cartas tienen por la manera en que sostienen la mirada
    Y si me perdonas que te lo diga, puedo ver que quedaste sin ases,
    Por un sorbo de tu whisky, te daré algún consejo".

    Entonces le entregué mi botella
    Se bebió el último trago.
    Luego mendigó un cigarrillo
    Me pidió prender la luz.
    La noche quedó mortalmente en silencio
    Su cara perdió toda expresión
    Él dijo: "Si vas a jugar el juego, muchacho, tienes que aprender a jugarlo bien."

    Tienes que saber cuándo quedarte con ellas
    Saber cuándo cambiarlas
    Saber cuándo irse caminando
    Saber cuándo correr.
    Uno nunca cuenta su dinero
    Cuando está sentado a la mesa.
    Ya habrá tiempo suficiente para contar
    Cuando se acabe de repartir

    Ahora, cada jugador sabe
    El secreto para sobrevivir
    Es saber qué desechar y
    Saber qué conservar.
    Porque cada mano es la ganadora y cada mano es la perdedora
    Y lo mejor que uno puede esperar es morirse al dormir.

    Y cuando terminó de hablar, se volvió hacia la ventana,
    Apagó el cigarrillo, se dispuso a dormir
    Y en algún lugar en la oscuridad
    El jugador salió invicto
    Y en sus últimas palabras,
    Yo encontré un as que podia conservar.

    Tienes que saber cuándo quedarte con ellas
    Saber cuándo botarlas
    Saber cuándo irse caminando
    Saber cuándo correr.
    Uno nunca cuenta su dinero
    Cuando está sentado a la mesa.
    Ya habrá tiempo suficiente para contar
    Cuando se acabe de repartir.
