Merritt Highway Songs (18) RE: Highway Songs 07 May 04


these are more travel-related songs with some qualifying as highway songs. and some may be too sad to "feel good," but I'll let you judge. they all work for me:

~ I Know You Rider - Trad
~ Southern Stream Line - John Fogerty
~ Key To The Highway - Broonzy
~ Willin'- Little Feat
~ The Road - Danny O'Keefe
~ Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe - Johnny Mercer; 1945
~ Your Bright Baby Blues Jackson Browne;

Sitting down by the highway
Down by that highway side
Everybody's going somewhere
Riding just as fast as they can ride
I guess they've got a lot to do
Before they can rest assured
Their lives are justified
Pray to God for me baby
She can let me slide

~ Southbound Train Graham Nash
~ Kansas City Blues Jim Jackson; 1928; Dave Van ROnk did a great cover back in +/- 1961 with the Red Onion Jazz Band
~ Northwest Passage Stan Rogers
~ Four Strong Winds written by Ian Tyson; performed by Neil Young, HArry Belafonte
~ Roving Gambler
~ Racing in the Streets Bruce Springstein
~ Railroad Bill think it's trad
~ Take Me Home, Country Roads John Denver
~ People Get Ready Mayfield; 1964

Have a great trip!
