Get Your Kicks on Route 66

Words and Music by Bobby Troup

“If you ever plan to motor west,
Travel my way, take the highway that is best.
Get your kicks on route sixty-six.

It winds from chicago to la,
More than two thousand miles all the way.
Get your kicks on route sixty-six”

(Bobby Troup wrote this song during a cross-country drive. Orignally titled Route 40 but 66 rhymed better).
