    Thumbing up the M6
    Uk's equivalent to Route 66
    Coffee at Keele
    And maybe a meal
    Food to make you sick

    'Choke & Puke' is CB slang for cafes on the motorway
    Much better to stop at transport cafes I say
    Though they are dying out
    There are still many transport cafes about
    So all with the world is ok

    As well as transport cafes to stop the truck
    Many layby's also you can tuck
    So no need to stop at Little Chefs
    They are not the best

    Hooray for the transport kaff
    Little Chef's are naff
    Egg bacon sausage mushrooms beans and toast
    English breakfasts are the best I boast
    The good old humble transport kaff

    There are other lovely motor highways, but there will never be a thing like Route 66 from Chicago to Los Angeles was in its thirty-year heyday! Even the coffee tastes different now that it is gone. :)

    Comedian Billy Connolly took a trip on a trike along the entire Route 66 in a tv documentary and it is an iconic highway immortalised in the song of the same name by Chuck Berry:

    Well if you ever plan to motor west
    Just take my way that's the highway that's the best
    Get your kicks on Route 66
    Well it winds from Chicago to L.A.
    More than 2000 miles all the way
    Get your kicks on Route 66
    Well it goes from St Louis, Joplin, Missouri
    Oklahoma City looks ooh so pretty
    You'll see Amarillo and Gallup, New Mexico
    Flagstaff, Arizona don't forget Winona
    Kingsman, Barstaw, San Bernadino

    Would you get hip to this kindly tip
    And go take that California trip
    Get your kicks on Route 66
    Well it goes from St. Louis, Joplin, Missouri
    Oklahoma City looks ooh so pretty
    You'll see Amarillo and Gallup, New Mexico
    Flagstaff, Arizona don't forget Winona
    Kingsman, Barstaw, San Bernadino

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