Did you ever steal a quarter when you was 10 years old?
Ever wear a brogan with a hole in the sole?
Did you ever ride a freight train while runnin' from the law?
I've done it all, Lord, Lord, I've done it all

Did you ever spend a winter in a dirty jail?
Did you ever buy a topcoat at a rummage sale?
Did you ever spend a Christmas inside detention hall?
I've done it all, Lord, Lord, I've done it all

Well, I've picked my share of cotton, boys
And I drove one railroad spike
And I've been everywhere I talk about
And I can tell you what it's like

I've even been to 'Frisco wearin' regular clothes
With them modern hippie folks starin' down their nose
I can proudly say I've answered my patriotic call
I've done it all, Lord, Lord, I've done it all, hey

Well, I've picked my share of cotton, boys
And I drove one railroad spike
And I've been everywhere I talk about
And I can tell you what its like

I've even been to 'Frisco wearin' regular clothes
With them modern hippie folks starin' down their nose
I can proudly say I've answered my patriotic call
I've done it all, Lord, Lord, I've done it all, hey

[Incomprehensible]
