Thread Name: Lyr Add: Get Your Kicks on Route 66 (Bobby Troup)
Subject: RE: Route 66 COMPLETE lyrics
Stayed recently at the old El Rancho Hotel in Gallup, a really nostalgic experience. Built in the hey-day of Route 66, the two-story lobby and its grand staircase, the atmosphere and all the memorabilia, both local and of the famous who stayed there, bring back the days when this was the way West.

I just looked up their blurb on the net- built in 1937, ten years before Troup's song.
