we're back out on Route 66 once again
gonna take a little ride, see some family and friends
we're primed for adventure, we’re ready to go
the kids are rockin' in the back seat to The Free Radio
and there she is waitin' up ahead on the right
the 66 Sun Tram, man what a sight
we'll pull up on the car hauler when we arrive
gonna kick back for a while, let the engineer drive
I pull out my grid card, slide it through the slot
gonna trade in some stored up energy I’ve got
from what my house is makin’ while I'm away
we'll be takin' this ride for free today

the 66 Sun Tram is smooth and fast
floatin' by maglev above the tracks
she's runnin' on power that falls from the sky for free
gonna take her all the way to the western coast
through the cool old towns that I love the most
we’ll be stoppin’ for food and fun and a place to stay
gonna ride all day and play all night
in the glow of the LEDeon lights
powered by the sun and the rain and the wind
Route 66 Is Alive Again!

gonna top off the charge on my electric ride
she'll be ready to go when we unload for the night
we’ll walk back to the dining car, find us a seat
take in the view and grab a bite to eat
there's a freight hauler floatin' on the next set of tracks
she's loaded with windmills and panels and racks
we got old 66 on the other side
covered with tourists out for a ride
electric Harleys and short haul trucks
are rollin beside us, tryin' to keep up
the Mother Road's busy like she used to be
everything's boomin' in the E-conomy

the 66 Sun Tram is smooth and fast
floatin' by maglev above the tracks
she's runnin' on power that falls from the sky for free
gonna take her all the way to the western coast
through the cool old towns that I love the most
we’ll be stoppin’ for food and fun and a place to stay
gonna ride all day and play all night
in the glow of the LEDeon lights
powered by the sun and the rain and the wind
Route 66 Is Alive Again!

I first saw The Vision when I was young
now it's hard to believe just how far we've come
since The Awakening only a few years ago
and Route 66 is our main street again
the way that she was way back then
the symbol of progress and hope
the American Dream
yeah we're finally livin' that dream

and the 66 Sun Tram is smooth and fast
floatin' by maglev above the tracks
she's runnin' on power that falls from the sky for free
gonna take her all the way to the western coast
through the cool old towns that I love the most
we’ll be stoppin’ for food and fun and a place to stay
gonna ride all day and play all night
in the glow of the LEDeon lights
powered by the sun and the rain and the wind
Route 66 Is Alive Again!
