I’ve Been Everywhere may just be the full-time RVer’s National Anthem. But have you ever heard the Texas version?

Some full-timers swear On The Road Again is the best RVing song. But as your wheels start turning, would you rather hear Willie Nelson, Canned Heat, or The Lovin’ Spoonful?

Are you a Speedball Tucker, or do you just prefer Truckin’?

Or, like us, do you believe The Road Goes On Forever But The Party Never Ends?

john hiattDrive South – John Hiatt

We were always looking for true north
With our heads in the clouds, just a little off course
I left the motor running, now if you’re feeling down and out
Come on baby drive, come on baby drive south

bob wayneGet There When I Get There – Bob Wayne

It’s been a long long time since I’ve been back home
I’ve been around the world and I know where I belong. . .
Well the demons they can’t trick me, I don’t believe those gospel songs
And even though I know the words, I still won’t sing along. . .

But I say “Oh, I’ll get there when I get there. . .
And Oh, I’ll get there when I come. . .

You may not like my appearance, may not like my song
May not like the way I talk, but you’ll like me when I’m gone
I’m a freeborn man my home is on my back
I know every inch of highway every foot of
Back road every mile of railroad track
