Lyrics:
Hard Travelin' (Take 1) [Version (a)]:

I've been...
I've been doing some hard travelin' no no
Hard Travelin' (Take 2) [Version (b)]:

I've been doing some hard travelin'
I thought you'd know
I've been doing some hard travelin'
All down the road
I've been doing some hard travelin'
Hard ramblin' hard gamblin'
I've been doing some hard travelin' alone

I've been doing some hard travelin'
I thought you'd know
I've been doing some hard travelin'
Way down the road
I've been doing some hard travelin'
Hard ramblin' hard gamblin'
I've been doing some hard travelin' alone

I've been hittin' some hard rock mining
I thought you'd know
I've been hittin' some high state drilling
Way down the road
I've been doing some hard luck gamblin'
I've been doing some hard travelin' long

I've been doing some hard travelin'
I thought you'd know
I've been doing some hard travelin'
Way down the road
I've been doing some hard travelin'
Hard gamblin' hard ramblin'
I've been doing some hard travelin'
Woo yeeha

I've been doing some hard travelin'
I thought you'd know
I've been doing some hard travelin'
All down the road yea yea yea
I've been doing some hard travelin'
Hard gamblin' oh yea
I've been doing some weeha down the road
 
The Song:

"Hard Travelin'" is an old Woody Guthrie song, one of his more famous.

Beck sings it on a home recording, called Beck + Dava which appears to just be a tape of a get-together of a small group, and Beck (and Dava) sing stuff. Right before it (the take one), you can hear Beck admitting he doesn't really know the song. But he knows the main verse or two, so they run through those the best they can.
