New Route 66 is a little different trail Hot enough to melt your tires And burn the devil's tail New Route 66; they've got rooms for let HBO, outdoor pools, and free wireless internet The old road has given way To interstates and airplanes Fifty-five is all you'll drive But no one here complains 'Cuz New Route 66 is just a state of mind And you can ride it swingin' the blues that the music left behind On New Route 66 My Route 66 New Route 66 Souvenir shop for a pitstop Anywhere on the strip Kokopelli rub their belly For good luck on your trip Pasadena to Glenrio Your tour guide is named Giacomo Just outside Carlinville The white writing on the brown sign Points the way to America This land yours and mine Excuse me Mr. Cole If you're ever back in town We'll go cruisin' Tucumcari With the ragtop down On New Route 66 My Route 66 New Route 66
