Back in 1958 we drove an old V8
And when it'd gone a hundred thou
We got out and pushed it a mile

We didn't know who we were
We didn't 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 didn't know who we were
We didn't 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 it's gettin' sorta late
And I'll soon turn out my light
Go home said the man in the moon, go home

We didn't know who we were
We didn't know what we did
We were just on the road

We didn't know who we were
We didn't know what we did
We were just a ridin' on
We were just a ridin' on the road
