If we're including synonyms for "road", that could go all day. Street, avenue, highway, lane, track, route, even motorway... zillions of the buggers.

Main Street
Electric Avenue
Highway to Hell
Penny Lane
Tracks of my tears (OK, that's stretching it a bit ;-)
Route 66
2-4-6-8 motorway

Road-wise, we've not yet got Telegraph Road.

Not sure, David, but I seem to remember a song called "Highway Song" but I can't remember anything about it or who it was by. I haven't heard of System of A Down so I don't think that was it. It may come back to me if I stop trying to remember...

Oh the springtime returns to the Laggan again,
And the larks sweetly sing o'er the green fertile plain,
And I'll take the road that is dearest to me,
The road to Drumleamon that winds tae the sea.

For I've made many friends there on every green mile,
And the people they greet me with a wave and a smile,
If I spent all my time there it's happy I'd be,
On the Road to -etc.

For we camped round the fireside when the wintry winds blew,
And we sang and we laughed till the night was well through,
And we each had a dram and a wee cup of tea,
For the road to- etc.

On those warm summer evenings we tramped the hills over,
To spend hours at the Eenan's(?) and Criggan's wild shore,
And the soft summer twilights made shadows to flee,
On the road to- etc.

Now these days passing quickly bring changes I know,
And as time marches oveer from this place we must go,
But I'll always remember while the heart beats in me,
The road to- etc.

Repeat first verse.

Always liked it - I play it in DAGDAD.

If we're going to include songs that include the word 'road' then there must be hundreds.

I Can't Help But Wonder Where I'm Bound (Tom Paxton) is one out of the hundreds there must be, but I can't think of the others right now.
