about

This is one of my favorite Butch Hancock songs. He’s also one of my favorite songwriters of all time. An honest-to-goodness poet, troubador, and story teller. I strive to tell stories like him. He’s also in The Flatlanders with Jimmy Dale Gilmore and Joe Ely.

lyrics

The studebaker - the pontiac- cadillac and ford. Some will be recycled and some will be restored. But somebody’s got you thinkin’ that the best way to survive is just to drive, drive, drive. But I’m here to tell you friends - if things haven’t gone too far, don’t lay your treasures up in some big shiny car.
Cause with less money that you’ve wasted and less time than it took to make it you coulda walked around the world • You coulda walked through the jungle and seen victoria falls, you coulda seen the pyramids and the taj mahal. You coulda seen the holy land - put yourself in jesus shoes. You coulda walked around the world • you coulda walked around the world, you coulda walked around the world. you coulda seen the holy land - put yourself in jesus shoes. you coulda walked around the world •
You coulda walked beside some river - watched the sunlight melt the frost. you coulda slept out under the northern lights or the southern cross. you coulda danced with danger - made good friends outta total strangers. you coulda walked around the world • You coulda learned how to heal instead of makin’ people sick. You coulda learned first hand just what it is that makes somebody tick. You coulda talked with masters ‘stead of jabberin’ with fools. You coulda walked around the world •
you coulda walked around the world. you coulda walked around the world. you coulda talked with masters ‘stead of arguin’ with fools. you coulda walked around the world • You coulda leaned into the wind of four strong winds ‘stead of drivin’ round town collectin’ useless odds and ends. ’stead of going nowhere you coulda lived a life of destinations. You coulda walked around the world • you coulda climbed the eiffel tower - seen the lights of gay paris. watched little dogs flight for power up in washington dc. someday you will remember you’re a child of mother earth and you coulda walked around the world • you coulda walked around the world. you coulda walked around the world. someday you will remember you’re a child of mother earth and you coulda walked around the world.
