Song Description

Pickup truck handed down through generations



Week after their wedding
Grandpa drove it home
Brakes were bad, the windshield cracked
And the hood was wired closed
Grandma just shook her head
Grandpa grinned and then he said
With elbow grease and a little luck
We'll be going places in this old truck

Maybe not Colorado, or even Caroline
No matter where we wind up it'll be the best of times
Through drought or rain or hurricanes we'll face it all
Whatever the world asks
What we have is built to last
Just like our love and this old truck

Day after grandpa died
Dad had it towed home
Starter shot, the paint was peeled
And the front tires were blown
Momma just shook her head
Dad smiled wide before he said
It won't take much to fix it up
We'll be going places in this old truck.


Dad can't drive any more
So I drove it home
Changed the oil and hosed it down
Then polished up the chrome
My wife just shook her head
Laughed at me and then she said
We won't let it gather dust
You can take me places in this old truck


(tag) Two things keeps us going when times get tough
Lots of love, lots of love
Lots of love and this old truck
