The trip began on├┐US├┐40├┐and continued along├┐US├┐66├┐to the California coast. Troup initially considered writing a tune about US├┐40, but Cynthia suggested the title "Get Your Kicks on Route 66".

Running to a mere 1 minute 50 seconds, this Chuck Berry composition might be described as a novelty song about a race between a Jaguar and a Ford Thunderbird. Although fast cars are a staple of many rock 'n' roll songs, Berry was not writing simply for effect as is clear from both his 1955 song "No Money Down" and his autobiography.
