I've Been Everywhere: Dead Hit 33

I was toting my pack along the long dusty Winnemucka road
When along came a semi with a high canvas covered load
If your goin' to Winnemucka, 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 breatherd the mountain air, man
Travel, I've had my share, man
I've been everywhere
