The Lyrics

[1st Verse:]
There is one road that goes all the way down to the West Coast
From Chicago, all the way on down to Los Angeles
It is long gone but it's remembered by us Americans
But old things are there, but remembered by us Americans, too
It survived (it survived)
The tough times (the tough times)
The Great Depression and World War II

Most of us now forget, elephants'll never do
It's hidden in those mountains
We might have shed some tears but
Relieved all those fears
It could be very hard to let go
Look on the bright side so you
Can cheer up now

There's Route 66
It's a real route no puns, no gimmics
Through the weeds, trees and some twigs
Not the Interstate highway, so don't get it mixed!

[2nd Verse:]
The Tulsa 66ers were named after this highway
Mater and Lightning McQueen
They strolled right on down this ancient highway
Those flimsy buildings
Mom-and-pop stores
Service stations
But It will be permanently remembered
It survived (it survived)
Even in the 50's (Even in the fifties)
The Oil Crisis and even the Cold War



It died in 1985, ohhhhhhh
At fifty-nine years old

(1st, 2nd and last lines only)


[Outro (til fade:)]
The end!
The end!
The end!
The end!
