"On the road to find Pie in the Sky" songs?

For a writing project, I'm trying to find songs (hopefully folk/traditional songs, but anything can work) that promise happiness if you can travel to "Big Rock Candy Mountain"-style mythical places.

I know "Preacher and the Slave", with its promise of "pie in the sky", is satirical but works for my purposes. Anything people could sing that refers to the hope of finding some kind of Narnia at the end of the road, whether it be heaven or a place with lots and lots of things made out of candy. And that idea of traveling to find it is an element I'm really looking for. Thanks!
