I've Been Everywhere

I've Been Everywhere - Lyrics
Written by - Geoff Mack
From - Unchained

I was totin' my pack along the long dusty Winnamucka road
When along came a semi with a high canvas covered load
If your goin' to Winnamucka, Mack, with me you can ride
And 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! I've traveled every road in this here land'

I've been everywhere, man
I've been everywhere, man
Crossed the deserts bare, man
I've breathed the mountain air, man
Travel...I've had my share, man
I've been everywhere
I've been to

I've Been Everywhere
By The Scared Weird Little Guys

Well I was humping my Bluey on the dusty Oodnadatta road
When along came a semi with a high and canvas covered load
"If you're going to Oodnadatta, mate, with me you can bloody ride."
So I climbed up in the cabin and I settled down inside
He asked me if I'd seen a road with so much dust and sand
And I said, "listen mate, I've travelled every road in this here land,

"Cause, I've been everywhere, man
I've been everywhere, man
Crossed the deserts bare, man
I've breathed the mountain air, man
And trouble I've had my share, man
I've been everywhere
