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. Take note of 3 new places you did not know of. Look for their location in a map. Share your findings with your classmates. Wednesday the 29th of October, our language assistant, Elia, will be with us. He is from Colorado.  Does  Cash mention Colorado in his song? You will have the opportunity to ask Elia about his home. It might be a good idea to find out if he is a compulsive traveller who’s been everywhere in the States. Listen to the son a couple of times and focus on pronunciation.

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