Slightly OT: A musical guide to travel

This rubric to lyrics about getting places has been pinging around the twitterverse and blogosphere this a.m.:

Wonder what a sg version of this sort of thing would look like? Off the top of my head:

The gate: old, old highway (the one called straight)
The place where I am waiting now: Damascus Road
That land of perfect peace and endless day: Glory Road
That blissful shore (via the Union Depot): Life’s railway
Back home: wing it

Feel free to add your own.

    Yeah, I know, not exactly gospel but after seeing the rubric, the secular songs just started flowing! I do know allot of hymns and gospel music so I’m still thinkin’ on it!
