Rusty Old Car

I happen to love all rusty old cars, at one time someone's pride and joy.  When I came across these lyrics,  I remembered the photos I took of this old car.


Artist: Pat Green
Lyrics to Rusty Old American Dream

I don't look all that ragged
For all the time it's been,
But I'm weakened underneath me 
Where my frame has rusted thin,
And this here state inspection,
I just barely passed.
Won't you drive me 'cross the country, boy?
This year could be my last.

I'm a tail-fin road locomotive
From the days of cheap gasoline.
For sale on the side of the road,
Goin' nowhere.
Rusty old American Dream.

I rolled off the line of Detroit in 1958.
Spent two days on the show room floor,
That's all I had to wait.
I've been good to all who've owned me,
So have no fear.
Come on, boy, put your money down,
And get me outta here.

I'm a tail-fin road locomotive
From the days of cheap gasoline.
For sale on the side of the road,
Goin' nowhere.
Rusty old American Dream.

This car needs a young man to own him,
One who will polish the chrome.
I'll give you the rest of my lifetime,
But don't let me die here alone.
Just jump me some juice to my battery,
Give that old starter a spin.
Hear me whir, sputter, 
Backfire to the carburetor
And roar into life once again.

I'm a tail-fin road locomotive
From the days of cheap gasoline.
For sale on the side of the road,
Goin' nowhere.
Rusty old American dream.
Still runnin', rusty old American dream.
