On The Road Lyrics

Artist: John Denver
Album: Back Home Again

This song was first released on the Back Home Again album. It is the only album it has been released on.

Back in 1958 we drove an old V8 and when itd gone a hundred thou we got out and pushed it a mile

We didnt know who we were, we didnt know what we did
We were just on the road

Headin down from Canada on a gravel road a mile from Montana
Then my Daddy read a sign and took us in the wrong direction
I asked my Daddy where are we goin, he said well just follow
Our nose, so I looked out the window and dreamed I was a cowboy

We didnt know who we were, we didnt know what we did
We were just on the road

I met a girl in a truck cafe, fell in love almost right away
Then the Mercury was ready to go and I had to leave her

Shoo-be-doo-be-doo-Sh-doo
Shoo-be-doo-be-doo-Sh-doo-Sh-doo

Go home said the man in the moon go home
Go home said the man in the moon go home

Because its gettinsorta late and Ill soon turn out my light
Go home said the man in the moon
Go home

We didnt know who we were, we didnt know what we did
We were just on the road

We didnt know who we were, we didnt know what we did
We were just a ridin on
We were just a ridin on the road

My mom used to sing us to sleep with this song. I've been trying to remember the name of it forever. I love it!

My mom sang me and my brother this song when we were little. I haven't thought about it in years. It gives me goose bumps!

I use to sing this with my Mom all the time. I at one time knew every word to every song on that album. It was lost and I have been trying to find again. Thank you internet.

My brother used to sing this song to me and then, he sang it to his kids. Still makes me cry when I sing it . . .

One of Johns classics and one that always brings happy and warm memories of earlier days in my life. Its also a showstopper when you sing it in the pub
