Out There on the Road lyrics

Out There on the Road

(Edward Bloom)

You can pine your life away

Wishin’ things were better

Waitin’ here for judgment day

While knittin’ you a sweater

But I believe that kind of life

Won’t set your spirit free

So my friend,

One small suggestion

Where you oughtta be’

You can take a journey

Through this country’s

Flesh and blood

On a ride past countryside

And Mississippi mud

Hit the street with two big feet

To bear your heavy load

And live life out there on the road

Anyone you wanna be

And anything you say

Come tomorrow you’ll be free

Of who you are today

Action and adventure

When we change our fixed abode

Go live life out there on the road

Wouldn’t you rather be

Like royalty

Respected like a king

Where it’s all civilized

You’ll be surprised

The song you’ll hear ‘em sing

People’ll greet you there

Some wanna share

Enthusiastic news

And all you need is guaranteed

With one big pair of shoes

One big pair of shoes!

What’s your name, giant’



(Edward Bloom)

Listen, Karl. The world is huge!

Don’t you wanna

Step outside

Look around

See what’s waiting there!

We were born to

Wake each morn

Some place we’ve never been

Checkin’ out the locals

As they watch us checkin’ in

Every new encounter

In another new zip code

We’ll find it out there-


That’s him, right there!

(Edward Bloom)

Wait! He’s not a monster

He’s a thinker

He’s a whiz

This boy isn’t half as bad

As you all think he is

I’ve been so inspired

I’ve decided we’re a pair

(Edward & Karl)

We’re heading out there

On the road

(Jenny Hill)

You’re leaving’ Now’!

Edward Bloom

Don’t tell me that you’re

Leaving us for good

(Edward Bloom)

Jenny, yes I’m leaving

But ‘for good’ I never could

I’ll be back some day

(Jenny Hill)

And I’ll be waiting while

You’re gone


'Til then,

Be happy on the road

(Edward Bloom)

C’mon Karl! Let’s show ‘em our traveling step! Every road trip needs a traveling step.


Edward Bloom, take with you this Key to the City, and know our doors will always be open to you.

(Edward Bloom)

Suddenly, I’m the king

Who holds the key

But everybody secretly

Is dying to be

More and more

Like who’


Like you’

(All But Karl)

Like you!

I can see America

Dependable and true

Open sky and passerby

Congratulating you

Find the open highway

And you’ve hit

The mother lode

Go crazy

(Edward, Karl & Men)

Out there on the

(Edward, Karl & All)


Out there on the

Finally out there

(Jenny Hill)

Promise you’ll return to us!

(Edward, Karl & All)

On the road!

On the road!!
