Thread Name: Lyr Add: Get Your Kicks on Route 66 (Bobby Troup)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Route 66 2nd verse
There is a recording of the song by Bobby Troup on a compilation of Route 66 songs: Various Artists 'The Songs of Route 66: Music from the all-American highway' Lazy SOB Recordings CD SOB66. The lyrics are those posted by Joe - no additional verse. There is also a recording by Charles Brown with longer instrumental passages but the same lyrics.

The compilation also has 'The Mother Road' performed by Alan Rhody - a fine song, co-authored by Rhody and Kevin Welch. For any who may be interested, I will post the lyrics in a thread under its own heading.
