Been All Round This World

print

Workin’ on the new railroad mud up to my knees
Workin’ on the new railroad mud up to my knees
Workin’ for ol’ John Henry he’s mighty hard to please
I been all ’round this world.

Hang me oh hang me till I’m dead and gone
Hang me oh hang me till I’m dead and gone
Don’t care much ’bout dyin’ it’s bein’ in jail so long
I been all ’round this worId.

Mama and papa and baby sister makes three
Mama and papa and baby sister makes three
Marchin’ me to the gallows that’ll be the end of me
I been all ’round this world.

Up on Blueridge Mountain there I’ll make a stand
Up on Blueridge Mountain there I’ll make a stand
Rifle on my shoulder six shooter in my hand
I been all ’round this world.

If you see a rich girl send her on down the line
If you see a rich girl send her on down the line
If you see a poor girl I’ll bet she’s a friend of mine
I been all ’round this world.
