Isn't there a Canadian version? Seems to me someone redid it with Canadian place names.

Hi Frances,

Stompin' Tom did a Canadian version. You can get it at Wikipedia by searching on I've Been Everywhere. I should look at it, but I really would need to do a cross-Canada drive to make the grade on this one.
