Hard Traveling

print

I’ve been doing some hard travelingI thought you knowed
I’ve been doing some hard traveling way down the road
I’ve been doing some hard traveling hard drinking hard gambling
I’ve been doing some hard traveling Lord

I’ve been doing some hard rock mining I thought you knowed
I’ve been leaning on a pressure drill way down the road
Well the hammer flying and the air hose sucking
And six feet of mud and I sure been a ducking
And I’ve been doing some hard traveling Lord

I’ve been riding them fast passengers I thought you knowed
I’ve been hitting them flat wheelers way down the road
I’ve been ridin’ them blind passengers dead enders
kickin’ up cindersI’ve been doing some hard traveling Lord

I’ve been layin’ in a hard rock jail I thought you knowed
I’ve been layin’ out ninety days way down the road
Darned old judge he said to me it’s ninety days
for vagrancy And I’ve been doing some hard traveling Lord

I’ve been doing some hard harvesting I thought you knowed
From North Dakota to Kansas City way down the road
Cutting that wheat and stacking that hay trying to make a dollar a day
And I’ve been doing some hard traveling Lord

I’ve been walking that Lincoln highway I thought you knowed
I’ve been hitchin’ on sixty six way down the road
Got a heavy load got a worried mind looking for a woman that’s hard to find
And I’ve been doing some hard traveling Lord
