I've Been Everywhere (Norfolk Version)

by Cameron Self and Johnny Cash
 

I wus carryiní my pack along the dusty Wymondham road,
When along came a tractor with a high and canvas-covered load.
ďIf you gorn to Wymondham, bor, with me you can ride.Ē
And so I climbed into the cab and then settled down inside.
He asked me if Iíd seen a rud with so much dust and sand.
And I say, ďListen, Iíve travelled every rud in this hare land!Ē

Iíve been everywhere, man.
Iíve been everywhere, man.
Crossed the Fenlands bare, man.
Iíve breathed the Broadland air, man.
Of travel, Iíve had my share man.
Iíve been everywhere.

Iíve been to:
Gimingham, Trimingham, Bressingham, Bessingham,
Banningham, Briningham, Cressingham, Lessingham,
Rudham, Ludham, Bodham, Bacton,
Thurton, Merton, Binham, Wacton,
Denver, Cranworth, Croxton, Cromer
North Creake and South Creake, Iím a loner.

Iíve been everywhere, man.
Iíve been everywhere, man.
Crossed the Fenlands bare, man.
Iíve breathed the Broadland air, man.
Of travel, Iíve had my share man.
