Ive Been Everywhere

	  		
(Spoken) 

This here next song is the story, about the fella that was hitchhikin' 

Away down in Southern Nevada, along came this big long truck 

Loaded down with potatoes. And the trucker put on the air brakes and 

Pulled over to the side, and said "Jump in son, throw in your bag, an' 

The one your carrin', an' he said "where all ya been son?" 

Well he said "I've Been Everywhere Man" 

And that's the name of this one. 

verse 1 

      C 
I was hitchhiking down along, The dusty Winemaca road 
      C 
When along came a transport truck with High and canvas covered load 
          F 
If you're going to Winemaca Mack 

With me you can ride 
  C  
I climed into the cab 

And then I settled down inside 

   G7  
He asked me if I seen a road 

With so much dust and sand 
       C 
I said listen bud I've travelled 

Every road in this here land.
