In the song 'Muss i denn, muss i denn zum Städtele hinaus', there is a statement
Han i glei net allweil bei dir sein
What's the original word
han here? Can't guess what it is in the dictionary.

The citing of the verse is inaccurate. Actually it reads:
Kann ('can') i glei net allweil bei dir sein
There is, however, the word han in the next verse:
Han ('have') i doch mei Freud’ an dir!
Han i is Swabian dialect and means habe ich ('have I') in Standard German. Thus its dictionary form is haben.
