I've Been Everywhere

A special tribute to the Man in Black, the late, great, Johnny Cash:

I've been everywhere, man.
I've been everywhere, man.
I've seen some Triple Crowns, man.
I’ve crossed the tunnel at the Downs, man.
You know I've hit the towns, man.
I've been all around.

I've been to:
Fair Grounds, Sportsmans, River Downs,
Meadowlands, Woodlands, Woodbine, Churchill Downs,
Keeneland, Gulfstream, Emerald Downs,
Colonial Downs, and Calder Race Course, just to see the horse.

I've been to:
Ellis Park, Turfway Park, Monmouth Park,
Garden State Park, Suffolk, Philadelphia,
Hawthorne, Oaklawn, Fairmont,
Ak-Sar-Ben, and Del Mar, got there in my car.

I've been to:
Santa Anita, Santa Rosa, Saratoga,
Philadelphia, Aqueduct, Beaulah, Belmont,
Atlantic City, Delaware, Arlington,
Turf Paradise, and Thistledown, just to get around.

I've been everywhere, man.
I've been everywhere, man.
I've seen some Triple Crowns, man.
I’ve crossed the tunnel at the Downs, man.
You know I've hit the towns, man.
I've been all around.

Well, not quite everywhere…but I’m working on it!

Lol, Cool post Brian. I don't really know a ton about Johnny Cash, but still I love the song format. The consistent "I've been everywhere man." Kinda made me chuckle.

You got me Chris (Cool Coal Man), I have indeed been to Woodbine and it has been added to ZATT's version of I've Been Everywhere. Thank you!
