"Movin' On" is a song written and recorded by country music singer Merle Haggard. Originally, it was the theme song to the 1974-1976 NBC-TV series of the same name. A full-length version of the song was released as a single in 1975, and it topped the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart that July.
In addition to serving as the main theme to Movin' On, the song was among many in country music to pay homage to the American over-the-road truck driver. It should not be confused with the country standard "I'm Moving On" by Hank Snow.
