Hank Snow I've Been Everywhere lyrics

 

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

'Cross 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

'Cross 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, Oskaloosa,

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

'Cross 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 do Lac, Davenport,

Idaho, Jellicoe, Argentina, Diamontina,

Pasadena, Catalina, see what I mean, sir;

I've been everywhere, man

I've been everywhere, man

'Cross 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, Eldorado,

Larrimore, Atmore, Haverstraw, Chattanika,

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

'Cross 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."
