I've Been Everywhere

With apologies to Johnny Cash, he has NOT been everywhere, but what if he had been a planewalker? What would the song "I've Been Everywhere" include? Let's re-write Geoff Mack's lyrics from a planar perspective...

"I've Been Everywhere" Written by Geoff Mack, as sung by Johnny Cash

I was totin' my pack along the dusty Winnemucca road,
When along came a semi with a high an' canvas-covered load.
"If you're goin' to Winnemucca, Mack, with me you can ride."
And so I climbed into the cab and then I settled down inside.
He asked me if I'd seen a road with so much dust and sand.
And I said, "Listen, I've traveled every road in this here land!"

[Chorus:]
I've been everywhere, man.
I've been everywhere, man.
Crossed the desert's bare, man.
I've breathed the mountain air, man.
Of travel I've had my share, man.
I've been everywhere.

I've been to:
Reno, Chicago, Fargo, Minnesota,
Buffalo, Toronto, Winslow, Sarasota,
Wichita, Tulsa, Ottawa, Oklahoma,
Tampa, Panama, Mattawa, La Paloma,
Bangor, Baltimore, Salvador, Amarillo,
Tocapillo, Baranquilla, and Perdilla, I'm a killer.

[Chorus]

I've been to:
Boston, Charleston, Dayton, Louisiana,
Washington, Houston, Kingston, Texarkana,
Monterey, Faraday, Santa Fe, Tallapoosa,
Glen Rock, Black Rock, Little Rock, Oskaloosa,
Tennessee to Tennesse Chicopee, Spirit Lake,
Grand Lake, Devils Lake, Crater Lake, for Pete's sake.

[Chorus]

I've been to:
Louisville, Nashville, Knoxville, Ombabika,
Schefferville, Jacksonville, Waterville, Costa Rica,
Pittsfield, Springfield, Bakersfield, Shreveport,
Hackensack, Cadillac, Fond du Lac, Davenport,
Idaho, Jellico, Argentina, Diamantina,
Pasadena, Catalina, see what I mean-a.

[Chorus]

I've been to:
Pittsburgh, Parkersburg, Gravelbourg, Colorado,
Ellensburg, Rexburg, Vicksburg, Eldorado,
Larimore, Atmore, Haverstraw, Chatanika,
Chaska, Nebraska, Alaska, Opelika,
Baraboo, Waterloo, Kalamazoo, Kansas City,
Sioux City, Cedar City, Dodge City, what a pity.

Hmmm, I guess this depends on how many planar and prime-material cities you can recite... ;)

...Sigil, Dis, City of Brass, City of Glass, Moil, Broken Reach, Malatanni, Jangling Hiter, Yeoman, Signpost, Waterdeep, Ribcage...

Well the first part switch

Well the first part switch out that road for the Great Road...

Instead of a semi it could be a carriage or a spell crystal from a summoning spell...

And instead of going to Winnemucca it's Sigil or a Gate Town and instead of "mack" it's "berk" or "cutter"...

I was breakin' my back atop a craggy, hot Gehenna cliff,
When along came a gith in an old and battered astral skiff
"If you're wantin' to flee Gehenna, blood, with me you can sail."
And so I leapt up on the deck and then took out my flask of ale.
He asked me if I'd seen a plane with so many sods to peel,
And I said, "Listen, I've traveled every plane on this Great Wheel!"

I've been everywhere, berk.
I've been everywhere, berk.
Climbed the endless stair, berk.
I've breathed the Plane of Air, berk.
Of travel I've had my share, berk.
I've been everywhere.
