I’ve Been All Around This World

print

   Hang me, oh, hang me and I’ll be dead and gone
   Hang me, oh, hang me and I’ll be dead and gone
   I wouldn’t mind the hanging Lord it’s laying in jail so long boys
   I’ve been all around this world

Working on the new railroad, mud up to my knees
Working on the new railroad, mud up to my knees
Working for John Henry, and he’s mighty hard to please
Been all around this world

Went up on the mountain, there I took my stand
Went up on the mountain, there I took my stand
Rifle on my shoulder, six shooter in my hand
Been all around this world

Lulu, oh Lulu, come and open that door
Lulu, oh Lulu, come and open that door
Before I have to open it with my old forty-four
Been all around this world

Mama and papa and baby sister makes three
Mama and papa and baby sister makes three
Take me down to the gallows boys that’s the last they’ll see of me
Been all around this world

Now if you meet a rich girl, boys, send her down the line
Now if you meet a rich girl, boys, send her down the line
If you meet a poor girl, bet she’s a friend of mine
Been all around this world
