I’ve Been All Around This World

Hang me, oh, hang me and I’ll be dead and gone
 Hang me, oh, hang me and I’ll be dead and gone
 I wouldn’t mind the hanging Lord it’s laying in jail so long boys
 I’ve been all around this world
 

 Working on the new railroad, mud up to my knees
 Working on the new railroad, mud up to my knees
 Working for John Henry, and he’s mighty hard to please
 Been all around this world
 

 Went up on the mountain, there I took my stand
 Went up on the mountain, there I took my stand
 Rifle on my shoulder, six shooter in my hand
 Been all around this world
 

 Lulu, oh Lulu, come and open that door
 Lulu, oh Lulu, come and open that door
 Before I have to open it with my old forty-four
 Been all around this world
 

 Mama and papa and baby sister makes three
 Mama and papa and baby sister makes three
 Take me down to the gallows boys that’s the last they’ll see of me
 Been all around this world
 

 Now if you meet a rich girl, boys, send her down the line
 Now if you meet a rich girl, boys, send her down the line
 If you meet a poor girl, bet she’s a friend of mine
 Been all around this world
