1.en.7 The song of a compulsive traveller: I’ve been everywhere

“I’ve Been Everywhere” is a song which was written by Australian country singer Geoff Mack in 1959, and made popular by Lucky Starr in 1962. Johnny Cash  recorded the song in the USA in 1996 but adapted the toponyms to make them known to American people.  Listen to Johnny Cash song and follow the text while he sings.

Different bands and singers wrote versions of the song adapted to their countries. There is even one in Catalan “He estat a tot arreu”
