If this dollar-bill could talk, it would probably say . . . 

"I've Been Everywhere"

(Sing along . . . )

"I was totin' my pack along the dusty Winnemucca road,
When along came a semi with a high an' canvas-covered load.
"If you're goin' 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 traveled every road in this here land!"

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

But first you must learn how to smile as you kill 
If you want to be like the folks on the hill."
