    Hello everyone!

    I am in the process of compiling a list of songs that mention the old Greyhound bus lines. I have a couple I can think of off the top of my head:

    America - Simon & Garfunkel
    Greyhound - Harry Chapin

    I thought of a few others earlier and now I've forgotten them! I knew I should have written them down!

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! :wave:

    Here's a few songs that mention busses (but not necessarily Greyhound):

    "Another One Rides the Bus" - 'Weird Al' Yankovic
    "Bus Stop" - The Hollies
    "The Bus Stop Song (A Paper of Pins)" - The Four Lads
    "Double Dutch Bus" - Frankie Smith
    "Greyhound" - Buddy Morrow & His Orchestra
    "Last Time I Saw Him" - Diana Ross
    "Magic Bus" - The Who
    "Mr. Bus Driver" - Bruce Channel
    "Thank God and Greyhound" - Roy Clark
    "Waiting at the Bus Stop" - Bobby Sherman

    The Diana Ross song does at least mention "Greyhound bound," which is a pretty good one.
