Please old car
could hang around for one more year
So maybe, I could get ahead
please old car
could ya let me pay some people off
And I promise I'll let ya rust out among the dead

I was flyin' down
one of them Tennessee hills
went lookin' for the brake
but there weren't none to be found
I swerved through a bunch of cars
a curb threw my front end up
a wall of a mountain and slide me back down

I stopped in a parts store
to get me a little advice
the old car was fightin' me
for the gears
we opened up the hood
and a crowd they gathered around
folks sayin' "Man, we haven't seen a mess like this in years"

We were drivin' in the middle of the night
I seen sparks in the rear view mirror
a groan told us
something was draggin'
we stopped to investigate
found the talepipe had fell off
And old Larry tied it back with one of my boot strings
