Woody Guthrie, Ludlow Music Inc. (hospital verse by A. Moock)

lyrics

CHORUS:
I’ve been doing some hard travelin’, I thought you knowed
I’ve been doing some hard travelin’, way on down the road
I’ve been doing some hard travelin’, hard ramblin’, hard gamblin’
I’ve been doing some hard travelin’, Lord

I’ve been ridin’ them fast rattlers, I thought you knowed
I’ve been ridin’ them flat wheelers, way on down the road
I’ve been ridin’ them dead enders, blind passengers, pickin’ up cinders
I’ve been doing some hard travelin’, Lord

I’ve been doing some hard rock mining, I thought you knowed
I’ve been leanin’ on a pressure drill, way on down the road
Hammer flyin’ and air-hose suckin’, it’s six feet of mud I been mucking
I’ve been doing some hard travelin’, Lord

CHORUS

I’ve been doing some hard harvesting, I thought you knowed
North Dakota to Kansas City, way on down the road
Cuttin’ that wheat, stackin’ that hay, tryin’ to make about a dollar a day…
I’ve been doing some hard travelin’, Lord

I’ve been laying in a hard luck bed, I thought you knowed
Wires tangled round my head, way on down the road
I’ve been poked and I’ve been prodded, got these IVs double knotted…
I’ve been doing some hard travelin’, Lord

CHORUS
