I've been everywhere (Johnny Cash) UNIT 8 - part of lesson K

A song with present perfect to talk about personal experience.

I was toting my pack along the long dusty Winnemucca road
When along came a semi with a high canvas covered load
If your going to Winnemucca, 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 travelled every road in this here land!"

I've been everywhere, man
I've been everywhere, man

I've breathed the mountain air, man
Of travel I've had my share, man
