Can anyone take a song file and cut it up and put it back together for me? Nothing extreme. Just taking a few parts out and piecing it together. I imagine it would be really simple with the right tools, but I don't have any.

Here's the situation, every year we have a big company meeting at our corporate office in Cincy. During an introduction segment where we introduce all the variious depts each regional manager (me) introduces his technicians. As each manager and team go to the stage, a "theme song" is playing on the sound system. It's cheesy, but it's a corporate thing we have to play along with.

Last year we did it, but our IT guy just put whatever song each dept head picked and played it from the beginning. In most cases the group was on stage ready to go before the words started on any of the songs. Lame. This year I want to make sure my section is a hit.

Our guys travel all over the country, so this year I want to go with some old school Johnny Cash, Travelin Man. It's a perfect fit and will definitely be different than what anybody else will do. It will go over well.

I don't have the original song file, but what I'm wanting to do is cut out the first section where he's talking. Start right off 0:27 with "Listen....." Also take out the repeating chorus so it just goes through all the places, then ends with the real low "I've been ev-ry-where"

This would be the finished lyrics

"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.
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, Hennessey, Chicopee, Spirit Lake,
Grand Lake, Devils Lake, Crater Lake, for Pete's sake.
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.
I've been to:
Pittsburgh, Parkersburg, Gravelbourg, Colorado,
Ellensburg, Rexburg, Vicksburg, Eldorado,
Larimore, Admore, Haverstraw, Chatanika,
Chaska, Nebraska, Alaska, Opelika,
Baraboo, Waterloo, Kalamazoo, Kansas City,
Sioux City, Cedar City, Dodge City, what a pity.

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 everywhere.

If I need an mp3 file I'll get it somewhere.
