Great choices for your top ten traveling songs!

Also I really enjoyed reading your new article about the people you met on your flight back to the States.

Enjoy Africa!

Cheers, Tim


You continue to dazzle me with such a post, GREAT! I know and love all the songs and musicians you listed except the Garth Brooks and Christopher Cross songs but then If I heard them maybe I'd recognize the lyrics. Crosby Stills and Nash's Song "Wind on the Water" and Steve Miller's "Take the money and run" could be added. Going back to the States often is a nostalgic experience when so many thoughts from years past pop back into my mind. Have FUN and keep UP with the positive energy. I probably won't be back to the USA mainland until 2012 when heading for latin and South America after 10 years away.


I would have to add "Ramble On" by Led Zeppelin for my all time fave travel song.



Here is the link to where I collect all the best Travel Songs, it is where I add the suggestions on this page.

Number #1 Bar None IS : Another Town Another Train.

Give it a listen fans and tell me what ou think


Hmmm Chuck, I am not sure I can relate to this song, sort of missing all the Alpha Male aspects of life I thrive on.... But, it for sure could be the Travel song of Thailand, which in my opinion is become the sister to California. Plus Pataya and San Francisco have so much in common.

Thanks for the creative thoughts Chuck.

Johnny Cash is too Domestic for me, but at least trying.

Roll on Down the Highway - Bachman Turner Overdrive

We rented a truck and a semi to go
Travel down the long and winding road
Look on the map I think we've been here before,
Close the doors let's roll once more.

Cop on the corner, look he's startin' to write
I don't need no ticket so I screamed out of sight,
Drove so fast that my eyes can't see,
Look in the mirror is he still followin' me?

Let it roll down the highway
Let it roll down the highway,
Roll, roll.

Look at the sign, we're in the wrong place
Come on boys, let's get ready to race
454 coming over the hill
The man on patrol, is going to give us a bill.

The time's real short, you know the distance is long
I'd rather have a jet but it's not in the song
Climb back in the cab, cross your fingers for luck
We gotta keep movie' if we're going to make a buck.

Let it roll down the highway, . . .

Southbound Again - Dire Straits

Southbound again
I don't know if I'm going or leaving home
Southbound again
I don't know if I'm going or leaving home

Boy got to be moving
Seems like the boy is bound to roam

Every single time
I roll across the rolling River Tyne
Every single time
I roll across the rolling River Tyne

I get the same old feeling
Every time I'm moving down the line

Southbound again
last night I felt like crying
Southbound again
last night I felt like crying

Right now I'm sick of living
But I'm going to keep on trying
