I've Been Everywhere Lyrics

by Hank Snow

I was totin' my pack along the dusty Winnemucca road
When along came a semi with a high and canvas covered load
"If you're going to Winnemucca, Mack, with me you can ride"
So I climbed into the cab and then I settled down inside

He asked me if I'd seen a road with so much dust and sand
And I said, "Listen, bud I've traveled every road in this here land"

I've been everywhere, man
I've been everywhere, man
I've crossed the deserts bare, man
I've breathed the mountain air, man
Of travel I've had my share, man
I've been everywhere

Been to Reno, Chicago, Fargo, Minnesota, Buffalo, Toronto, Winslow
Sarasota, Wichita, Tulsa, Ottawa, Oklahoma, Tampa, Panama
Mattawa, La Paloma, Bangor, Baltimore, Salvador, Amarillo, Tocopilla
Barranquilla, and Padilla, I'm a killer

I've been everywhere, man
I've been everywhere, man
I've crossed the deserts bare, man
I've breathed the mountain air, man
Of travel I've had my share, man
I've been everywhere

Boston, Charleston, Dayton, Louisiana, Washington
Houston, Kingston, Texarkana, Monterey, Ferriday
Santa Fe, Tallapoosa, Glen Rock, Black rock, Little Rock
Okaloosa, Tennessee, Hennessey, Chicopee Spirit Lake
Grand Lake, Devil's Lake, Crater Lake, for pete's sake

I've been everywhere, man
I've been everywhere, man
I've crossed the deserts bare, man
I've breathed the mountain air, man
Of travel I've had my share, man
I've been everywhere

Louisville, Nashville, Knoxville, Ombabika, Shefferville
Jacksonville, Waterville, Costa Rica, Pittsfield, Springfield,Bakersfield
Shreveport, Hackensack, Cadillac, Fond Du Lac, Davenport, Idaho
Jellicoe, Argentina, Diamontina, Pasadena, Catalina, see what I mean, sir

I've been everywhere, man
I've been everywhere, man
I've crossed the deserts bare, man
I've breathed the mountain air, man
Of travel I've had my share, man
I've been everywhere

Pittsburgh, Parkersburg, Gravellburg, Colorado, Ellensburg, Rexburg
Vicksburg, El Dorado, Larrimore, Atmore, Haverstraw Chattanooga
Chaska, Nebraska, Alaska, Opelika, Baraboo, Waterloo, Kalamazoo
Kansas City, Sioux City, Cedar City, Dodge City, what a pity!

I've been everywhere, man
I've been everywhere, man
I've crossed the deserts bare, man
I've breathed the mountain air, man
Of travel I've had my share, man
I know some place you haven't been
I've been everywhere
