  1. Camper Van

From the recording Overlander (Pre-Order)

I wrote this song as I was planning a route from Iowa to Seattle and back with shows along the way. The pandemic and the "I'll play anywhere man" tour allowed us to slow down a bit and focus on the journey as much as the destination. It was on this trip that we met some of the people from Storyteller Overland, the manufacturer of our van. When I played them the "Camper Van" song they came up with the idea of recording at Muscle Shoals. This spring Jeffrey Hunter, Jason Ruha, Matt Bright, Emma Walsmith and I headed into FAME studios and recorded this song. We hope you add it to your road trip playlist.

Lyrics

8 Hours to the Black Hills mountains
Past the Turtle Buttes and we're still countin'
The signs to the Wall Drug store
Playing stone face with Crazy Horse

7 Hours to Yellowstone
Oh give me a home where the buffalo roam
I'm gonna stand where Custer last stood
Making my peace while knocking on wood

We're gonna drive our camper van
We're gonna cruise across this land
On the road less traveled than
We're gonna drive our camper van

Only 45 miles and it's all 2 lanes
Across Idaho via Coeur d'Alene
On the way back through we'll take the southern route
Along the snake river like you wanted to

4 More hours to the Puget Sound
Nephews growing by leaps and bounds
Stay a few days and rest our bones
Stop in Oregon on the way back home

We're gonna drive our camper van
We're gonna cruise across this land
On the road less traveled than
We're gonna drive our camper van

Blue Highways, Scenic Roads and Byways
Elliott Bay to 30A, Slow

Head South on the 101
Stop in Forest Grove gonna come undone
Head back east to the Great Salt Lake
Taking our time while there's time to take

8 More hours to the Great Divide
Now it's all downhill gonna let it slide
A couple days home just wash our clothes
Load it up again and we hit the road

We're gonna drive our camper van
We're gonna cruise across this land
On the road less traveled than
We're gonna drive our camper van
We're gonna cruise across this land
On the road less traveled than
We're gonna drive our camper van
