I was totin' my pack along
The dusty Winemaca road
When along came a semi with
High and canvas covered load.

If you're going to Winemaca Mack
With me you can ride
So I climed into the cab
And then I settled down inside.

He asked me if I seen a road
With so much dust and sand
Then I said listen bud I've traveled
Every road in this here land.

I've been everywhere man
I've ben 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
I've 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 ben everywhere man
Cross the deserts bare man
I've breathed the mountain air man.

Boston, Charleston, Dayton, Louisiana
Washington, Houston, Kingston, Texarkana
Monterey, Ferriday, Santa Fe, Tallapoosa
Glen Rock, Black 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 ben everywhere man
Cross the deserts bare man
I've breathed the mountain air man.

Louisville, Nashville, Knoxville, Ombabika
Shefferville, Jacksonville, Waterville, Costa Rica
Pittsfiels, Springfield, Bakersfield, Shreveport
Hackensack, Cadillac, Fond Du Lac, Davenport.

Idaho, Jellicoe, Argentina, Diamontina
Pasadena, Catalina, see what I mean-a.

I've been everywhere man
I've ben everywhere man
Cross the deserts bare man
I've breathed the mountain air man.

Pittsburgh, Parkersburg, Gravellburg, Colorado
Ellensburg, Rexburg, Vicksburg, Eldorado
Larrimore, Atmore, Haverstraw, Chattanika
Chaska, Nebraska, Alaska, Opelika.

Baraboo, Waterloo, Kalamazoo, Kansas City
Cedar City, Dodge City, what a pity.

I've been everywhere man
I've ben everywhere man
Cross the deserts bare man
I've breathed the mountain air man.

(I know some place you haven't been)
I've been everywhere...
