Bing Crosby/Andrews Sisters/Vic Schoen Orchestra

Written by: Bobby Troup

Peaked Billboard position #2 in 1946


Well if you ever plan to motor west
Travel my way, take the highway that's the best
Get your kicks on Route 66.

Well it winds from Chicago to LA,
More than two thousand miles all the way,
Get your kicks on Route 66.

(Well it goes to St. Louis, down to Missouri
Oklahoma City looks so, so pretty
You'll see Amarillo, Gallup, New Mexico)
Flagstaff, Arizona, don't forget Wynonna
Klingman, Barstow, San Bernardino

If you get hip to this kind of trip,
When you make that California trip,
Get your kicks on Route 66.

(If you ever plan to motor West,
Go west, it's best, travel my way,
Take the highway that's the best,
Get your kicks on Route 66.
Big 6, 6
It winds from Chicago to L.A. Califor- n-i-a
Almost 2 thousand miles all the way,
Get your kicks on Route 66.)

Now you go thru St. Luie, Joplin, Missouri,
And Okalahoma, City is mighty pretty,
You'll see Amarillo, Gallup, New Mexico
(Flagstaff, Arizona), don't forget Wynonna
Klingman, Barstow, San Bernardino

Won't you get hip to this timely tip,
Take a trip, take a tip,
When you make that California trip,
Get your kicks on Route 66.
Make your way on (66)
Get tray gay on (66)
Get your kicks on Route 66.
