Honky Tonkitis

Here's where you talk to the band


We had a request to post the lyrics to our version of I've Been Everywhere (Wisconsin style), so here they are. Learn them for the next show and you can take Johnny Maplewood's place singing that song.

I've was totin' my pack along the dusty old Wisconsin road

When along came a Schneider with a high and canvas covered load

"If you're going through old Wisconsin, mack, with me you can ride"

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, bud, I've traveled every road in this here land."


I've been everywhere, man, I've been everywhere man

I've crossed the cornfields there, man, I've breathed the dairy air, man

Of travel I"ve had my share, man, I've been everywhere


Been to Monroe, Osseo, Trego, Kaukauna, Peshtigo, Cottage Grove, Shawano and Menasha

Tomah, Sparta, Ottawa, Navarino, Wausau, Waukesha, Genoa, and Oneida

Mauston, Stoughton, Sheboygan, and Kenosha, Wauwatosa, Onalaska, Lake Geneva, I'm a killer


Crandon, Appleton, Chilton, Cheguamegon, Madison, Milton, Dousman, Sturtevant

Sturgeon Bay, Sister Bay, Green Bay, Kashena, Lake Mills, Reedsville, Gays Mills, Nashotah

Genessee, Ozaukee, Milwaukee, Shell Lake, Green Lake, Rib Lake, Random Lake, for Pete's sake


Saukville, Thiensville, Janesville, Palmyra, Pardeeville, Clintonville, Boscobel and Menasha

Plainfield, Marshfield, Deerfield, Kickapoo, Beaver Dam, Merrimac, Fond du Lac, Waterloo

Antigo, Trempaleau, Reeedsville, Platteville, Schnappsville, Montello, see what I mean, fella
