A very diminutive Ruffus recounts the adventures of Tom Thumb and shares his journey with Bliss the pig in this charming duet from the Writer's Guild Award winning episode.


Wherever you've gone,
That's where you've been,
Trudging the same old trails.

Wherever you go,
That's where you'll be.
Big city smoke.
Ol' country folk.
Between 'em we'll ride the rails.

Highways - Highways,
And back streets - Back streets.
Life in your backpack.
Upstream - Upstream,
Or downtown - Downtown.
Tune by Bacharach,
Words by Kerouac,
This is my ode to the road.

Wherever we go
That's where we'll be.
It's just understood,
We're together for good.

Where you go -
I'm one step behind ya.
Let's hit the road -
We'll see what we find there.

Highways - Highways.
And back streets - Backstreets.
Words by Kerouac,
Tune by Bacharach,
This my ode to the road.
