    Which airline was it that flies direct to Dallas/Ft Worth? American? British Airways?

    & What if you're coming from Bolton (That's where Peter Kay is from right?)

    Oh dear...I'm afraid I still don't know the Way to Amarillo :S

    Well I have a lady in my car who tells me exactly where to go and I just do what she says.

    It's for the best really. And you can't argue with her.

    (Well, she's electronic, you see - there wouldn't be much point! ;))

    Surely the song asks 'Is this the way...'. A yes/no answer would suffice.
