Hard Travelling
Woody Guthrie

I've been a-havin’ some a-hard travelin’, I thought you knowed
I’ve been a-havin’ some a-hard travelin’, way down the road
I’ve been a-havin’ some a-hard ramblin’
Hard drinkin’, hard gamblin’
    I’ve been a-hittin’ some a-hard travelin’, Lord

I’ve been a-ridin’em fast rattlers, I thought you knowed
I’ve been ridin’em flat wheelers, way down the road
I’ve been a-ridin’em blind passengers
Dead enders, pickin’ up cinders
    I’ve been a-hittin’ some a-hard travelin’, Lord

I’ve been a-hittin’ some a-hard rock minin’, I thought you knowed
I’ve been a-leanin’ on a pressures drill, way down the road
Hammer flyin’, air hose suckin’
Six foot mud and I’m sure I’d been a-muckin’
    I’ve been a-hittin’ some a-hard travelin’, Lord

I’ve been a-havin’ some a-hard harvestin’, I thought you knowed
North Dakota to Kansas City, way down the road
Cuttin’ that wheat and stuckin’ that hay
An’ I’m tryin’ to make about a dollar a day
    I’ve been a-hittin’ some a-hard travelin’, Lord

I’ve been a-workin’ that Pittsburg, I thought you knowed
I’ve been a-duggin’ that red-hot slag, way down the road
I’ve been a-blustin’, I’ve been a-firin’
I’ve been a-pourin’ that red-hot iron
I’ve been a-hittin’ some a-hard travelin’, Lord

I’ve been a-layin’ in hardrock jail, I thought you knowed
I’ve been a-layin’ out ninety days, way down the road
Mean old judge, he says to me
It’s ninety days for vagrancy
   I’ve been a-hittin’ some a-hard travelin’, Lord

Well, I’ve been a-walkin’ that Lincoln Highway, I thought you knowed
I’ve been a-hittin’ that 66, way down the road
Got a heavy load and a worried mind
I’m a-lookin’ for a woman that’s hard to find
    I’ve been a-hittin’ some a-hard travelin’, Lord
