I love the bold graphics of this pretty cover.

Here are the lyrics:
What in the world could be so sweet, As the thundering clatter of horses' feet and the SONG OF THE OPEN ROAD! Let me live and never worry about tomorrow, Why every worry about tomorrow! For tomorrow's another day! Let me love and then ride away. Life is short, they say, and may be for me, so let me be free!
I'm on the road to anywhere! Let me travel on with no more load and no more care, just like a vagabond. I'll let the blue sky above me cover my head, why should I want a feather bed?
So let me travel and sing my song of the road, the long, long road, the SONG OF THE OPEN ROAD!
