Soundtrack

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?

Wall Of Voodoo Call of the West LyricsCall of the West – Wall of Voodoo

You’ve come a long way, I know
You’ve got a longer drive ahead
Through the bones of the buffalo
Through the claims of the western dead, and
Just like the spokes of a wheel
You’ll spin ’round with the rest
You’ll hear the drums and the brush of steel
You’ll hear the call of the west, call of the west
You’ll hear the call of the west, call of the west

woody guthrieHard Travelin’ – Woody Guthrie

I’ve been hittin’ some hard travelin’, I thought you knowed
I’ve been hittin’ some hard travelin’, way down the road
I’ve been hittin’ some hard travelin’, hard ramblin’, hard gamblin’
Been havin’ some hard travelin’, Lord

Robert Earl Keen Road Goes On Forever MP3 DownloadThe Road Goes on Forever – Robert Earl Keen

They jumped into his pickup, Sonny jammed it down in gear.
Sonny looked at Sherry, said “Let’s get on out of here”.
The stars were high above them, the moon was in the east.
The sun was setting on them when they reached Miami Beach.
They got a hotel by the water, a quart of Bombay Gin.
The road goes on forever and the party never ends.
