Home, Home on the Road is an album by the American country rock group the New Riders of the Purple Sage. Released by Columbia Records in 1974, it was their first live album, and their fifth album overall. The eleven songs on the album are a combination of originals and covers. Six of them had appeared on previous New Riders albums, and five had not.

Home, Home on the Road was produced by Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead, who had co-founded the New Riders and had been their original pedal steel guitar player. One track, "Kick in the Head", was written by Robert Hunter, who wrote the lyrics to many Grateful Dead songs.

In 2004, Sony Music Entertainment, which owns the Columbia catalog, released a combined CD of Home, Home on the Road and the New Riders' subsequent album, Brujo. This "2-on-1" CD was issued on the BGO Records label.
