Route 66 Lyrics
In 1946 Bobby Troup, an aspiring songwriter and music arranger, drove from Pennsylvania to Los Angeles to advance his career.
During the long trip, his wife, Cynthia, suggested that he write a song about highways,
and she thought of the rhyme ďGet your kicks on Route 66.Ē Bobby wrote the rest of the words and music
as they traveled the famous highway. In Los Angeles he performed the song for Nat King Cole, who made it a hit.
The Troupsí song became a monument to long-distance car travel.
| Now you go thru St. Looey, Joplin, Missouri And Oklahoma City looks might pretty.
You'll see Amarillo, Gallup, New Mexico,
Flagstaff, Arizona, don't forget Winona,
Kingman, Barstow, San Bernardino.
Won't you get hip to this timely tip
When you make that California trip
Get your kicks on Route 66.
