Welcome to a journey into the future with the Norris Brothers Band across America’s historic Route 66. The ride starts with this first single, “Ride on Route 66”, a nostalgic ride in the past, which sets the stage for our blast off into a future where we've finally figured out how to live in harmony with each other and Mother Earth. The Route 66 album will continue with signature Norris Brothers feel-good tunes, and will be released one song at a time as the ride and the stories unfold, with a full album release at the end of the journey. Join us! 
Take The Ride!

Ride on Route 66

well it started with a cooler 
full of ice and pop 
and us kids in the back seat 
dad lowered the top 
mom slid across the front seat 
and she cranked up the radio 

with the mornin' sun shinin' 
and the cool wind in our hair 
we drove straight into 
that early summer air 
took a right at the light 
then we followed the sun 
toward the sea 

mom and dad were still young 
with their whole lives ahead 
and I still can recall 
all the things that they said 
as we started off on that adventure 
on America's Main Street 

the sky was the limit 
we had men in space 
and progress and inventions 
all over the place 
we had everything we needed 
there was nothin' we couldn't do 
it was mountains and deserts 
and endless starry skys 
i swear i saw this world 
through a new set of eyes 
right there on the Mother Road 
i felt the joy of being alive 
on that ride 
on Route 66 

with our hands out the windows 
in the wind to beat the heat 
we flew forever through the 
fields of corn and wheat 
i remember mom smiled and said 
someday everyone on earth 
will have enough to eat 

we drove on past the neon 
and the last chance for gas 
out there with the cactus 
and the buffalo grass 
dad pulled the car over and said 
one day this is where 
we'll make our energy 

there'll be windmills and panels 
as far as you can see 
we'll be pullin' power right down 
out of thin air for free 
i can still see the light in dad's eyes 
i can still hear him say 
(i can hear him say) 

the sky is the limit 
we have men in space 
and progress and inventions 
all over the place 
we have everything we need 
there is nothin' we can't do 
it was mountains and deserts 
and endless starry skys 
i swear i saw this world 
through a new set of eyes 
right there on the Mother Road 
i felt the joy of being alive 
on that ride 
on Route 66 

there are those who'll take you down 
that dead end road to gloom and doom 
and I'll admit i made a wrong turn 
down that way a time or two 
but somehow i always seem to find 
my way back here again 
with my kids in the back seat 
and my hair in the wind 

and the sky is still the limit 
we got women in space 
and progress and inventions 
all over the place 
we have everything we need 
there is nothin' we can't do 
in the mountains and deserts 
and endless starry skys 
i still can see this world 
through a new set of eyes 
right here on the mother road 
i feel the joy of being alive 
on this ride 

the sky was the limit 
we had men in space 
and progress and inventions 
all over the place 
we had everything we needed 
there was nothin' we couldn't do 
it was mountains and deserts 
and endless starry skys 
i swear i saw this world 
through a new set of eyes 
right there on the Mother Road 
i felt the joy of being alive 
on that ride 
on Route 66
