I Ain't Been Anywhere Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I was sittin' at home just a-listenin' to my radio
An' along came a fella who apparently had been on the go
Well, he started in a-braggin' 'bout ev'rywhere he'd been
And there isn't any place in this whole world he hasn't seen
You ask me where I've been, an' I'm a-going to tell you, Pard
Why, I ain't even been outside the gate in my backyard
Verse 2
I ain't been anywhere, Joe

I didn't want to go, so
I guess I'll never know, Joe
An old stick in the mud, Bud
I ain't been anywhere

Bombay, Mandalay, Calgary, Cashmere,

Carlsbad, Leningrad, Stalingrad, too bad!
