How Many of You Loved Your Old Truck?


By Walt Perryman

Can anyone relate to my morning thought?
Maybe it depends on the truck you bought!

Somehow, I can’t believe how life can suck,
How many of you men loved your old truck?

Then you go and trade it in for a new one,
And you’re devastated when the deal is done.

You’re so sad about your old truck and you,
And about all that you’ll have been through!

You look back at your old truck as you leave,
The love you had for a truck is hard to believe.

As you drive your new truck off the new car lot,
You discover it’s a computer that you’ve bought!

Three days later and you’re driving around town,
You’ll finally read, how to roll the windows down.

I don’t know how we can love a ‘old’ truck this way,
Maybe it has something to do with Valentine’s Day!
