I've Been Everywhere

Johnny Cash

    [E] 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 [A] going to Winnemucca, Mack
With me you can ride."
So I [E] climbed into the cab
And then I settled down inside
He [B7] asked me if I'd seen a road
With so much dust and sand
And I said, 
[E] "Listen, Bud I've traveled every road in this here land."

[Chorus]
[E] I've been everywhere, man
I've been everywhere, man
[A] 'Cross the deserts bare, man
I've [E] breathed the mountain air, man
[B7] Of travel, I've had my share, man
[E] I've been [B7] every-[E] where.
