Lyrics

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

Keep it if you love it, fix it if it's broke
Some things you don't throw away
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

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

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

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