lyrics

This beat up guitar has served me well
The strings are old and it’s time for a trade
The tour’s taken its toll, it’s looking kinda old
It’s time I’m afraid.

This car’s pushing two hundred thousand miles
Rusty paint and the transmission’s broke
The last time we tried, we only got to Blythe
We only needed a few more miles

Take care of the things that treat you well
Before they get too old and bid you farewell
You wouldn’t come this far without them there
They bid you farewell

These pets will grow old soon
Loved you for their whole life
Love you can’t repay
You’ve felt it since the first day
they saw you

Take care of the things that treat you well
Before they get too old and bid you farewell
You wouldn’t come this far without them there
They bid you farewell

Beat up and broken is just another way to say
I loved these things from the first day
Old and tired is just another way they go
into our memories

Take care of the things that treat you well
Before they get too old and bid you farewell
You wouldn’t come this far without them there
They bid you farewell
