HARD TRAVELLING
Words and music by: W.W. WOODY Guthrie


I BEEN A HAVING SOME HARD TRAVELLING
I THOUGHT YOU KNOWED
I BEEN A HAVING SOME HARD TRAVELING
WAY DOWN THE ROAD
I BEEN A HAVING SOME HARD TRAVELLING
HARD RAMBLNG HARD GAMBLING
I BEEN A HAVING SOME HARD TRAVELLING
LORD

I BEEN A RIDING THEM FAST RATTLERS
I THOUGHT YOU KNOWED
I BEEN A RIDING THEM FLAT WHEELERS
WAY DOWN THE ROAD
I BEEN A RIDING THEM BLIND PASSENGERS
DEAD ENDERS KICKIN UP CINDERS
I BEEN A HAVING SOME HARD TRAVELLING
LORD

I BEEN A WORKING IN A HARD ROCK TUNNEL
I THOUGHT YOU KNOWED
I BEEN A LEANING ON A PRESSURE DRILL
WAY DOWN THE ROAD
HAMMER FLYIN AIR HOSE SUCKIN
SIX FEET OF MUD I SURE BEEN A MUCKING
I BEEN A HAVING SOME HARD TRAVELLING
LORD

I BEEN A WORKING THAT PITTSBURGH STEEL
I THOUGHT YOU KNOWED
I BEEN A WORKING THAT RED HOT SLAG
WAY DOWN THE ROAD
I BEEN A BLASTIN I BEEN A FIRIN
I BEEN A DUCKIN RED HOT IRON
I BEEN A HAVING SOME HARD TRAVELLING LORD


I BEEN HITTIN SOME HARD HARVESTIN
I THOUGHT YOU KNOWED
I BEEN HITTING SOME ROUGH HANDLING
WAY DOWN THE ROAD
CUT THAT WHEAT AN STACK THAT HAY
TRYIN TO MAKE ABOUT A DOLLAR A DAY
I BEEN A HAVING SOME HARD TRAVELLING
LORD

I BEEN A LAYIN IN A HARD ROCK JAIL
I THOUGHT YOU KNOWED
I BEEN A LAYIN OUT NINETY DAYS
WAY DOWN THE ROAD
MEAN OLD JUDGE HE SAYS TO ME
IT'S NINETY DAYS FOR VAGRANCY
I BEEN A HAVING SOME HARD TRAVELLING
LORD

I BEEN A HITTIN THAT LINCOLN HIGHWAY
I THOUGHT YOU KNOWED
I BEEN A HITTIN THAT SIXTY SIX
WAY DOWN THE ROAD
HEAVY LOAD AND A WORRIED LIND
LOOKING FOR A WOMAN
THAT'S HARD TO FIND
I BEEN A HAVING SOME HARD OLD
TRAVELLING LORD
