The best songs about travel

On the road again - Willie Nelson

And I can't wait to get on the road again.
On the road again.
Goin' places that I've never been.
Seein' things that I may never see again.

I've been everywhere - Johnny Cash

If you're going to Winnemucca, mack, with me you can ride
So I climbed into the cab and then I settled down inside
He asked me if I'd seen a road with so much dust and sand
And I said, "Listen, I've traveled every road in this here land"

Hit the road Jack - Ray Charles

Hit the road Jack and don't you come back no more, no more, no more, no more.
Hit the road Jack and don't you come back no more.
What you say?
Hit the road Jack and don't you come back no more, no more, no more, no more.
Hit the road Jack and don't you come back no more.

Life is a highway - Rascal Flatts

Life's like a road that you travel on
There's one day here and the next day gone
Sometimes you bend, sometimes you stand
Sometimes you turn your back to the wind.

Paradise City - Guns N' Roses

Take me down
To the paradise city
Where the grass is green
And the girls are pretty
Take me home.

Passenger - Iggy Pop

I am a passenger
And I ride and I ride
I ride through the city's backside
I see the stars come out of the sky.

Road to nowhere - Talking Heads

We're on a road to nowhere
Come on inside
Takin' that ride to nowhere
We'll take that ride.

Born to run - Bruce Springsteen

The highways jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive
Everybodys out on the run tonight but there's no place left to hide
Together wendy well live with the sadness
Ill love you with all the madness in my soul.
