Some Things You Don't Throw Away

My old man was a fan of fixing things
We never bought nothin' new
Backdoor screens and washing machines
There was nothing duct tape couldn't do

I had hand-me-down toys, hand-me-down clothes
Ancient was all that we owned
Even the car sitting in our front yard
Was more than twenty years old

When I was a kid, it embarrassed me to death
Daddy just laughed, shook his head and said

A  Keep it if you love it, fix it if it's broke
A  Some things you don't throw away
A  Son, you're gonna find the things that matter most
Ain't easy to replace
Some things you don't throw away

When I left home, I was bound and determined
Not to live the way Daddy did
If it was worn-out or old, it got thrown-out or sold
Without a tear being shed

So I hocked that watch my grandpa left me
It never kept time worth a damn
And my letter jacket - Goodwill could have it
Back then I didn't understand

Those are mistakes I've lived to regret
It's too late now, but I know what Daddy meant


So girl we've got our problems, that I can't deny
But a love this good, you don't just toss aside
