Chuck Berry - Route 66 Lyrics

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

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

Well, it goes through St. Louis
Joplin, Missouri
Oklahoma City looks oh-so pretty

You'll see Amarillo, a-Gallup, New Mexico
Flagstaff, Arizona, don't forget Winona
Kingman, Barstow, San Bernardino

Would you get hip to this kindly tip
And take that California trip?
Get your kicks on Route 66

It goes through St. Louis
A-Joplin, Missouri
A-Oklahoma City looks oh-so pretty

You'll see Amarillo, a-Gallup, New Mexico
Flagstaff, Arizona, don't forget Winona
Kingman, Barstow, San Bernardino

Would you get hip to this kindly tip
Take that California trip?
Get your kicks on Route 66
Get your kicks on Route 66
And I'll meet you
On Route 62
Get your kicks on Route 66

    Is hard to accept this, but yes, Chuck Berry is the real king of Rock n’ roll.
    He deserves it

  4. 6655321

    get your kicks on I44

  5. Kris Buwan

    I’ve been looking for a fast version of this song. Like it’s not nightcore. It’s not that much faster, but the part where it’s like “ now you go through saint louie ....” that parts speed up kinda. Idk, if anyone know what I mean plz drop the singer in the comments.

    Chris Simon

    Well, you try listening to the John Mayer one.

  6. Milly

    Sang this song during my roadtrip across Route 66. Screamed it while driving past monument valley

  7. Mathilde Zaninotti

    Don't forget Winona 🙃❤

  8. Ronald Cammarata

    Few seem to realize this song began its life as a jazz song.

  14. Wendy's Twitter

    I never knew how hold this was. It’s from 1946. And until now, I thought the oldest song I listened to was from 1958. And of course, that song from 1958 is the other famous Chuck Berry song. Johnny B. Goode.

  15. 《Alien The Neila》

  20. Aria Sweetfeather

    OML. My teacher played this song in class when we were sharing American Homework, I'm in the U.K., and when it said Oklahoma City, everyone turned around and starred at me since I've been to Tulsa and Eufala… It was so embarrassing xD I've been on Route 66 over a million times apparently xD

  21. Iara Cristhisne


  22. Adventure Sonic

    Imagine if this was heard this in a jukebox at a route 66 diner!


    My parents took us on a drive from Ontario(Canada) to California(US) back in the 1980's and we drove it, there was a diner that had this on a jukebox in Oklahoma. Sadly it was closed down when I drove it back in 2002, but with more people rediscovering that good ol' americana maybe someone's reopened it.

    This marvelous song, and Chuck Berry's version in particular, reflects in its rhythm, the turning motion of tires and wheels as one rolls along this great open road. We miss you, Chuck, one of the founders of rock n' roll.

  66. Walter Karling

    The only version of Route 66 with a rumba beat. Can I get a witness?
